Constructor's Note
Very proud of this! Let me know what you think as I'm still new to cryptics! :D

      Also, 4A was a really nice clue.

        Fun! These tiny cryptics are actually really good practice; I'm finally starting to get more clues in bigger cryptics. Side note: funny that both of our puzzles reference Japan — I'm currently staying in Hiroshima!!

            Not bad, although I do have to point out that it's usually frowned upon to not have the anagram fodder in the clue verbatim. It's not a big deal with something this checked and this small, but keep that in mind.
            Anyway, very nice nonetheless. I can see your clueing improve!

                Cool! It’s not so bad with short answers like these, but just a note that “indirect anagrams” like 3D can end up feeling too unfair and so aren’t often used. Great to see your clueing getting better!

                  Incredible! Micro Cryptics are really fun for me
