    Formerly of Wellington and before that, Chicago, Mika Reilly now lives in a Tokyo apartment block where even after a year she still can't comfortably navigate her tiny kitchen. (It doesn't matter, there's always a ramen shop nearby.) She once wrote a food blog. Her latest project is an exploration into the multifarious snack food offerings of Japanese convenience stores.
