Writing and editing for forward-thinking universities, schools, organizations, and individuals.

Hello. I'm Richard, and for the last couple of decades I've been writing, editing, and offering communication advice to universities, schools, law firms, companies like Sony, Panasonic, Obunsha and Kumon, and great people around the world.

I can help you improve your writing and how your organization communicates both internally and externally. That includes content writing, copywriting, editing, layout, language choice, naming, communications consulting, and more. I primarily work in the fields of education and law, but I've also worked with great people from all walks of life.

But enough about me. Tell me about yourself and what you need:

Say hello@treejapan.com to start a project, ask a question, or just say hello.

I'm based in Japan, where I live with my family and our cat. Aside from my freelance work, I also lecture at universities in Tokyo.
My work has been published internationally, and I have written and contributed to a number of academic books and papers.
I'm currently writing a non-fiction book and a novel.

I also publish articles and advice at Tree | Substack
