Hello! I'm Sakari Mesimäki, a freelance writer and anthropologist with a background in Japanese studies. As an anthropologist I research people's lives by hanging out, making new friends and having deep conversations. Sometimes I do put these skills and interests to use in more journalistic formats. You will find some examples here, in no particular order.

I didn't write this one, but worked as a fixer and interpreter for the Nikkei journalists visiting Japan, resulting in coverage of Finnish startup Solar Foods in Japan's biggest business media.
