Axel Schwab


My name is Axel Schwab and I live in Munich, Germany. As an engineer I develop electric vehicles, as an author I write books mainly about Japan. I first went there in 1993 during my studies and later lived in Tokyo for five years. I travel the world with my camera and continue to visit Japan regularly.
