Dear Dave's Japan Diary

Nice to talk to you.
My name is Yuta Sugawara.

How are you doing?
I hope you are doing well.

Currently, I live and work in Tokyo.
First, sorry to message you all of a sudden.

I'm here to ask your permission to use your blog content on our Facebook page.

We made a Facebook page for conveying the allure of Japan to those who don't know about Japan.
At this point, we have about 20,000 fans from all over the world on our Facebook page.
Since we are going turn it into a web service with its own site at the end of March, we need native English bloggers to help get people interested.

URL : https://www.facebook.com/TokyoLocalGuide/?ref=ts&fref=ts

I looked at your blog posts about Japan, which are so organized and easy to read with your fantastic description of each location.
Thus, I thought the concept of your blog matches right up with the concept for our Facebook page.
This is why I'm contacting you, to ask permission to share posts from your blog onto our Facebook page. Of course, we'd provide a link back to your original post each time.

Or even better, if you could write posts for your blog on our web service.
It'd be great if you could collaborate with us on making content for the site as a writer.
In the process, we'd be totally open to hearing input from you, like how the design on a blog page should look.

If you're up for it, I'd really like to have you on our team.
Let’s make a wonderful blog platform together.
When it comes to attracting customers,
I’m willing to go the extra mile.

I look forward to hearing from you.
