Chris runs an art-related online business (Art Web), but even more interesting are the gravity defying poses that he tends to strike when he's out and about -- and we're talking out and about on a global level. (in English and Japanese)

@ VOL 125 ON MAY 28, 2015

"Our mission is to dispel this myth that Tokyo is this crazy expensive place." 

From humble beginnings, tech entrepreneur Chris Kirkland's website, Tokyo Cheapo, a travel and culture guide dedicated to life in Japan on a budget, has grown to a monthly readership over 150,000. From getting to and fro, to staying in rock-bottom-priced accommodation, even to finding love, Tokyo Cheapo covers it all on life in Tokyo on the cheap!

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June, 26th 2015.
