Ray Bartlett

Ray Bartlett is a true Cape Codder: Except for college and a brief two years in Japan, he's lived on the sandy peninsula his entire life. He began his travel writing career at the age of 18 when he jumped a freight train for 500 miles and sold an article and photos about the experience to the Cape Cod Times. More than two decades later, Ray is still wandering the globe with pen and camera in hand, but he’s always happiest to return home.

Ray is often on the road in Japan, Korea, or Mexico. In addition to publishing numerous travel articles and books, he has also produced videos on such disparate topics as New England in autumn, Cape Cod whale-watching, and a Japanese fertility festival. Ray is a featured guest on Around the World, a syndicated radio show, and he has appeared on PRI's The World. He owns and operates a top-rated onsen website, OnsenJapan.net.

When not on assignment in different parts of the globe, Ray is on the Cape, where he drinks too much coffee and burns too much midnight oil. For more information, visit his website at Kaisora.com.
