My few months in Japan

JAPAN | Wednesday, 4 July 2007 | Views [500]

Sorry this has been so late coming, but as you all know I have not been able to uplaod my pictures and have had no internet. It's a shame as my memory card has been full and I have not been able to take any pictures. I have done a lot of sightseeing and have had to take pictures on my phone and I haven't got a usb for this now. Anyway, here are only a few of the photos from my first few weeks - I hope it gives you a bit of an insight.

So the first week of training was really hard but very good fun. I didn't really get a big culture shock. We were so busy each day there wasn't really time. One my closest friends here is a girl named lisa, from New York. She now lives in Kanagawa which is about 1 hour 30 minutes away from me. Work is good, I enjoy it but the kids lessons can be very hard. I teach 31 lessons a week, half adults, half kids, and high school. Some lessons are easy and others are really hard.

The food is so good here. There is sushi obviously, ramen, udon and soba (all noodles), takinori (octopus and something), yakiniku (korean style chicken), tempura and lots more - yum yum yum

Tokyo is expensive, and there is so much good stuff to buy. I have started my Japanese lessons, but I need to study more as I don't really do much - so I am trying to do at least half an hour a day. My listening is coming on really well but my speaking and writing aren't. It is now 11.30 pm and i am really tired and have stuff to dob so i will stop writing now, but will carry on tomorrow, hope you like the pictures!!
