Katharina von Tschurtschenthaler
Katharina came to Tokyo in August 2014. She loves running, hiking and absorbing every bit of Japanese culture. As this includes Japanese cuisine, she likes to hang out in supermarkets with her Japanese friends (who are happy to explain to her the details of even the most incomprehensible products). For Savvy Tokyo she writes about hidden coffee places, international running groups and Japanese weddings—quite a change after having covered European politics as a TV reporter in Brussels, Belgium.
