Hello, Rob Dyer, founder of The Real Japan, here.
I believe in being transparent with my audience. So this is a quick summary of how I might earn some revenue in order to make this site free for you to access.
Dsomedia Limited (owner of The Real Japan) may partner, promote, or affiliate with other companies or individuals whose services or products naturally align with the content of this site.
I want you to be aware that there may be instances when I promote, market, share or sell services or products for other partners and in exchange I may receive financial compensation or other benefits.
You should note that I am highly selective (I turn down the vast majority of partnering requests) and only promote the partners whose services or products I use myself, respect, or am proud to recommend and represent.
At the same time, you agree that any such promotion or marketing does not serve as any form of endorsement whatsoever. You are still required to use your own judgement to determine that any such service or product is appropriate for you. You are assuming all risks, and you agree that we are not liable in any way for any service or product that we may promote, market, share or sell on or through this website.
If and when I am compensated for my opinion on a service or product, that compensation in no way influences my opinion, and I will always provide my honest views.
This site sometimes uses affiliate links. If you see a link to a specific service or product, it may be that if you click on that link then I will receive a referral fee. There is no additional cost to you for clicking on links to affiliate products.
The Real Japan is also part of the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. You can assume that any link to a product on Amazon is a referral link and I may earn a small (and by 'small' I mean tiny) commission should you choose to purchase.
You might also want to read our Terms of Service.
If you have any questions or concerns about any of this - or even about any service or product I recommend on this site - don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact page.
