Spent the last couple of days in Kumamoto City for prefectural orientation! It's such a lovely city, where modern and traditional meet (kind of representative of my experience of Japan so far). The shopping highstreet is just ace and even though I've struggled, I've managed to find veggie places to eat too. But be warned... Kumamon is EVERYWHERE! .

(Karuizawa day trip part 1)
We went to Karuizawa for a day and learned on the way that it is the sister city of Whistler, BC. It is easy to see why as it is a mountain resort town with trendy shops that cater usually to other Japanese tourists. It is a popular escape from the heat due to the elevation and saw many different license plates in the parking lots.

I am obsessed with Japanese manhole covers and each city has a diffrent design. This is the manhole cover for Takasaki.
Be prepared to see many more photos of these from me.

Whether it’s the Tokyo Yomiuri Giants or Tokyo Yakult Swallows you want to support while you’re here. Going to a baseball game in Japan is a must for the atmosphere and experience alone. I went a year ago at the Tokyo Dome but there are regular games held at Meiji Jingu Stadium,Yokohama Stadium and ZOZO Marine Stadium too. Tickets can start as cheap as 1300¥ per person!

Had such a brilliant time at a local festival in Hiroshima not long ago. I danced the night away led by the sensei in the third picture and even played a real taiko (as opposed to an arcade one 😆) on the stage as everyone danced around! What a great night it was. .

When I told my Japanese students about life back home they'd try to guess what animals my family had. They'd usually guess a dog or a cat, but no one ever guessed a horse!

I passed these photos around the classroom, and they couldn't get enough of my mom's awesome horse!

Gunma JET Orientation was a lot of fun. They let me be a professional and a gaijin at the same time. Time to make a commitment to the former #travel #jetprogramme

15 August: I realized I hadn't posted any torii gates yet and that's just unacceptable. This is not too far from where I'm staying by my standards but Kyoto is one of those beautiful places where there are shrines just everywhere, even in the middle of commercialized streets. It's a very cool engrained uncultural thing that I love about this place. -
Last year when I was collecting my daily ema's I remember that one day I started crying on my way back to the hostel because all the shrines I went to either didn't have ema's or told me they didn't want me taking them with me. Then I walked right past a big shrine basically built into the downtown area of Kyoto and I was so happy a paid double for the thing as a donation to the shrine. I love Kyoto.

Today I had my first DDR fun times in Japan and did other arcade game wonders, like a realistic train simulator. Weee!
