Genkina hito’s Christmas in Japan

Hello dear readers.



I have been very slack writing posts for the blog because I have been working on various project and exploring Tokyo. I finally made it to Japan. Some days I become blasé about certain things but then I remember that I am on the other side of the planet and in a country I have always been interested in. It’s amazing. I have gotten used to commuting in and around Tokyo and following train etiquette, I use chopsticks without having to think about things, and I am picking up Japanese words at a fair clip.

I have two jobs at the moment and contribute to a film project. Next year, I will head to the Osaka Asian Film Festival to work as a volunteer. I am finally contributing to Japanese cinema.

As a result of this I travel around and speak to the locals and I experience all sorts of new things and making friends. I want to keep doing this.

I had a busy day starting with a Japanese class and then I watched three films. I went to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with a work colleague, I then watched the Satoshi Kon anime Tokyo Godfathers and Paprika.

Although I feel a little homesick I also feel comfortable here in Japan and I have met many wonderful and kind people. I hope to continue meeting great people and experiencing unique things. I will try and get my work rate for this blog up again but for now, here’s an OP which I have always wanted to use when I thought about posting videos from Japan:

  1. Merry Christmas! Sounds like it has been a great experience for you!

    Don’t worry about making regular posts. Just take notes and you can publish it later. Although, drunk notes on cocktail napkins often don’t make sense the next day.

    1. Thanks! Merry Christmas to you as well!

      It has been a great experience for me so far. My only frustration is that I haven’t had time to write. I’d rather be busy than stuck with nothing to do, though. I’m seeing sides of Japan not usually seen by tourists. Heck, I’ve finally made it here!
