launched in February 2009 primarily as my blog space, since then the site has become much more than just that.

Since August last the site has used the rather awkward temporary domain whilst the site was migrated to a complete new software platform.  This has taken much longer than planned, in fact is still ongoing, and the original can still be found at

For some time I have felt that the branding didn’t really reflect what the site had become, the site is no longer just about Niigata, as it was, and there is an increasing amount for content and news from right around the globe.

Today we’ve made the biggest change since the site was launched 7 years ago, a complete new rebrand and design, is now Nishikigoi.Life
