Joe Lyward - An Englishman currently living in Japan
We found Joe after months of searching the internet world, looking, stalking, pondering. We were looking for something that said Sailors Grave, and he looked like he spoke our language! We invited him to come and stay with us for a while, we shared beer, our love of whales and a deeper understanding of what Sailors Grave is but most importantly what it looked like!
