Aurora Mizutani born Dupelola Osaretin Ajala (AKA - L. M. Data, AKA - D. A-Gravill) is the daughter of Moshood Adisa Olabisi Ajala. 

An Italian national, Aurora Mizutani is the author of “21st Century Guide to Being a Tourist in Japan”, “Tourists in Japan”, “Giappone Turismo”, “Easy Japan”, "An African Abroad, and “Little Boy and Mr Scary Snake”, written under her previous pen name DA Gravill.

Aurora Mizutani an English Literature and Creative Writing graduate of the London Metropolitan University attended Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka, Japan. Fascinated with books about historical practice, elite power, art, political smoke screens, faith, philosophical dogma and the pursuit of endless knowledge, L. M. Data’s narrative directly relates to the human experience. As Student Union President at City & Islington College, L. M. Data was introduced to Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburg.

AT THE TIME, L. M. Data also met Boris Johnson, mayor of London and collaborated with Jeremy Corbin on several college enterprises. L. M. Data currently resides in Japan with her Japanese husband.


Aurora re-published the works of her father Olabisi Ajala and established the Ajala Legacy Forum Publishing House in 2022. 


The re-publication of “An African Abroad” by the late Olabisi Ajala by the company is considered a significant reference for travel writers from West Africa and other countries. 


In the past two years, Aurora has published around nine titles, including literature and criticism, political science and philosophy, anthologies of short stories, and multilingual travel guides. 


Ajala Legacy Forum produced “Easy Japan,” a satirical travel guide to Japanese culture. The book was published in Japanese, English, and Italian in 2022.


Aurora Mizutani, like her father, has written a book titled "An African Abroad," which is her autobiography.

Unlike my father’s remarkable, numerous achievements, I have had memorable encounters with a handful of heads of state. Moshood Adisa accomplished a challenging task by travelling to more than seventy countries on a moped and meeting with heads of state, to name a few of his recorded adventures. If he had been caught, my father’s ordeal would have been physical in the form of possibly torture and brutal imprisonment. Moshood Adisa eluded imprisonment in Russia, perhaps even the dreaded Gulag.

It has been said that Adisa died in poverty. That depends on one’s definition of wealth. Adisa died living behind around a dozen children. My father wanted to ensure that at least one of his offspring would carry his legacy. Moshood Adisa, a true pagan, had the foresight and wisdom to understand that earthly riches are just that. Earthly riches. Arguably, as Adisa died with the knowledge of true freedom, I dispute the assumption that he died in poverty. What freedom? Read on to find out.

Adisa must have had a complete understanding of the game ‘Monopoly’. When one has finally mastered the game ‘Monopoly’, they learn that reaching their objective is futile. That is to say that when the game is over, all proceeds inevitably go back into the box. The bottom line is that one cannot take the money, or anything else, to the afterlife. The Egyptian Pharaohs died wealthy. They buried their vessels and riches in crypts. These riches were excavated by archaeologists and are now on display worldwide. Moshood Adisa had the foresight of spending his money on this earth, as it’s apparent that we cannot take it with us. Adisa left behind his scions and his written legacy, the true treasures of this material world.

I persist in my unwavering belief that Moshood Adisa died a wealthy man indeed within this reality.

Questa Guida 2022 è scritta in giapponese e inglese dall'autrice Aurora Mizutani e tradotta in italiano da Giorgio Fragiacomo.

Questa è una stimolante guida satirica del XXI secolo, molto compatta, ed è accompagnata da illustrazioni stilizzate che stuzzicano e invitano il lettore in un mondo di umorismo allegro e stravagante.

La formulazione della guida offre leggerezza, non segue alcun ordine cronologico, mentre il suo approccio non lineare ci invita a seguirla nel suo errabbondare scanzonato.

Questo lavoro fornisce comunque una certa comprensione della cultura giapponese, esplora le pratiche native e indica brevemente le nuove norme sociali imposte dalle varianti del coronavirus.

 

Buona lettura e benvenuti in Giappone!

This 2022 Guide is written in Japanese and English by the author Aurora Mizutani and translated into Italian by Giorgio Fragiacomo.

It is an inspiring, compact satirical guide to Japan in the 21st century, and is accompanied by stick figure illustrations that tantalize and invite the reader into a world of light-hearted and whimsical humour.

The formulation of the guide offers levity and does not follow any chronological order, while its non-linear approach compels us into its cheerful wandering.

This work nonetheless provides some insight into Japanese culture, explores native practices, and briefly points to new social norms imposed by variants of the coronavirus.

 

Happy reading and welcome to Japan!
