Hello there! My name's Ken Joseph Jr.

I was born and raised here in Tokyo, where my parents came in 1951 and 1954, answering the call put out by Gen. Douglas MacArthur for 10,000 young people to come and help rebuild a devastated Japan.

I run a service called The Japan Helpline, which since 1975 has assisted Japanese traveling, living and studying throughout the world, and also the international community here in Japan 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!
