Hi, I’m Chad Thiele. I’m the founder of TokyoSpark.
I’m the eternal visitor. I work on a military base, live outside the local economy, and get to enjoy Tokyo like a visitor everyday — for the last 22 years — learn more about me here.
I hand-pick the delicious eats, interesting sights, and intriguing Japanese culture; refine it, and add my own research and experience.
Don’t trust an algorithm for your information
I love social media. But the info you receive is filtered through an algorithm showing you popular, sometimes superficial content — or worse, sponsored content.
I focus on real, authentic content that passes my “human filter” and on decades of experience — TokyoSpark arrives in your inbox unfiltered, unbought and unbossed.
