Connecting Flights

This year, I took advantage of my winter vacation and decided Bangkok would be a great way to do so.  Because the costs during winter and Christmas are always at a high, my girlfriend and I decided in order to cut costs a bit we should take an airline with the cheapest prices.  It is … Continue reading

Down The Kiso River

If you have ever been to Inuyama, then I’m sure you are familiar with the Kiso River.  Although I’m not living in Inuyama, I have visited on several occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed myself each time.  If you are looking for information on how to experience this then I’ll put a link at the bottom. … Continue reading

Wednesday’s with Taniguchisan

The title for this is a rip off of a book that many people are probably familiar with, “Tuesday’s with Morrie”.  Although my experience is far different from the book, the situation reminds me of somewhat relative circumstances. Every Wednesday for the past four months, I have been visiting with a retired Japanese English teacher.  … Continue reading

Gifu Fireworks

I’m a little late in writing this along with a series of other summer related blogs, but hopefully the pictures will warm you up as it begins to get colder outside. This time I’d like to talk about the festival I went to in Gifu Prefecture.  Gifu is adjacent to where I currently live and … Continue reading

Japanese Barbecue

With the summer coming to a close, my friends decided to put together a last of the year barbecue.  The weather is starting to change and things are cooling down from the usual 90 and humid summers that are typical in Aichi Prefecture.  The days are still pretty hot, but the nights are cool and … Continue reading

Last Train

It has been a while and I haven’t written anything, but I’d like to keep my family and friends updated on things going on seeing as I’ll be in Japan for what seems to be another 3 years give or take.  Here’s a fun story to show how ‘interesting’ my life is across the ocean. … Continue reading

A Kanazawa Wedding Party

During Golden Week I spent some time in Kanazawa.  In my previous blog you can see what I did during the day, but here is a little look into what I did during the night. I was able to experience my first Japanese wedding after-party.  Now, I come from a family that is always growing … Continue reading

Another Day In Japan: Osu Kannon Temple

I finally made it to a nearby temple that I’ve been meaning to go to for a while now.  Osu Kannon Temple is right outside the subway exit for Osu Kannon city.  Although the sky was filled with clouds, the weather was perfect for a trip around the city. Within the temple grounds, there is … Continue reading

Golden Week

Golden Week is rapidly approaching and it seems that everyone is carefully preparing for the event.  I personally have prepared a trip to Kanazawa, a city in Ishikawa prefecture just off the coast of the Sea of Japan.  But prior to my trip I have a few days to kill which I’ll be spending my … Continue reading

Japanese Food

Let’s talk about something everyone can agree on.  Food is good.  In Japan it may seem that the only thing there is to eat is sushi and rice.  Contrary to popular belief, this is not necessarily true.  I am in love with sushi and although I would be happy to eat it on a regular … Continue reading
