About this Diary


This site is a written and photographic journal on my particpation, as a foreigner, in a clinical drug trial in Japan.

Not for the squeamish! There are plenty of pictures and discussion about blood, urine, needles and catheters. Writing this diary was a way to cope with my own needle phobia and these topics gets a pretty good workout, so please exercise discretion if they make you feel uneasy.

On the other hand… there is also a fair number of pictures involving drug trial participants goofing off, playing golf and relaxing in beautiful Japanese onsens.
