About Us

purikuraWelcome to Saké Puppets サケ パペット!  I’m Angela, and this is my husband Dan. Thanks for joining us on all our (mis)adventures! (^_-)-☆

In 2010 we moved to Tokyo and started this blog as a way to document the food, craft, and culture of our new home in Japan. Many tales of ramen ensued. I spent days in Tokyo wandering side streets in search of craft shops and cafe lattes. I started my sashiko embroidery design shop, which you can find here, contributed to the design blog Spoon & Tamago and hosted craft classes at the English Craft Club/英語でCRAFT.

My first ebook, the Tokyo Craft Guide, is available now as a downloadable PDF. (yay!)

In 2014 we moved to Brooklyn, New York, and now have a whole new city to explore. Not surprisingly, we are still in search of ramen.
