There are many good expatriate writers in Japan.
Some are doing work unrelated to Japan in particular, others have chosen life in Japan as their main focus.
A good example of the latter is the "Cultivated Days" blog, here:
C. W. Nicol (1940-2020) was a pioneer of nature writing in Japan, and became dedicated to ecological education here, establishing an organisation that carries on his work: Afan Forest Trust.
The site is entirely in Japanese, but Nicol published many articles in English in The Japan Times and elsewhere.
