Cover of It Was You, an Only In Tokyo Short

(If you read on a Kindle device, this version is not ideal. Email me at for a copy that’s more Kindle-friendly.)

English translator Yumi Hata is less than thrilled to be roped into wasting her Saturday afternoon watching amateur headbangers compete at a local live house, but her best friend Coco lost a bet with someone at her “relationship coaching” business, so she reluctantly agrees.

But the band managed by Coco’s client is not what she expected, and when Coco begins to show signs of becoming dangerously involved with their success, Yumi suspects that painfully awkward salaryman Ren Noda is hiding something. She enlists Detective Kenji Nakamura to help her investigate, and the deeper they dig, the more she’s convinced that Coco is being targeted.

This isn’t the first time Coco has fallen for the wrong guy, but if Yumi doesn’t stop her from falling into a pit she may never climb out of, who will?

And don’t forget, The Last Tea Bowl Thief will be out next month, so keep your reading nook warm!
