Konnichiwa amigos y amigas! In case you didn’t realize, I’m in Japan! I arrived on September 4th, 2012, and I have a one year contract to teach English with AEON, which is a big, private English language school here in Japan. I’m living in Kawasaki City, which is just southwest of Tokyo. While I’m here, I’m going to explore Japan, work on my taiko skills and Japanese, and see my friends (and my “special friend” *wink-a-dink*) who have moved to Japan. Hopefully this blog will help me stay better connected with you great people back home, and you can stay updated with my Japanese times if you wish.
