Tokyo Tower

James Alton Sanders

Tokyo Technology Journalist


Since 2013, I've worked as regular contributor at TechRepublic, as well as writing occasional special features for Tech Pro Research and ZDNet. I've also been published at Android Police.

Primarily, I cover enterprise technology and security, quantum computing, cloud computing, open source software, SaaS, mobility, and IoT. I also write about alternative or boutique operating systems, such as Sailfish, Tizen, ReactOS, and OS/2, as well as alternative processor architectures, such as POWER and RISC-V.

You can see my latest and featured articles on Muck Rack.


Hi! My name is James Sanders. I'm a Tokyo-based writer and journalist. I was born and raised in the United States, but I've moved back and forth between my hometown of Wichita, Kansas and various parts of Japan since I was a student in University.

I graduated from Wichita State University in 2015, though it was my experience as an exchange student at Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo that inspired me to return to Japan. After living in sunny Miyazaki Prefecture for a year and a half, I'm now living and working in Tokyo.
