Héctor García was born in Spain and worked at CERN in Switzerland before moving to Japan, his home for 18 years and counting. While in Tokyo when he is not writing his next book, he makes a living in the IT industry.
His popular blog led to his international bestseller A Geek in Japan and later on The Magic of Japan. He is the co-author of the bestselling Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life; translated into 70 languages.
Ikigai has the strange honor of being the most translated book ever originally written in Spanish. To this day he has published ten books, the latest one translated into English is The Book of Ichigo Ichie, and recently he has published his first fiction work in Spanish.
