My favorite country in the world

1 March 2013

To commemorate the first post of the blog, I thought I should start with a short post as to what on earth I am doing in Japan…

Does walking the streets put a smile on your face? Do you feel excited when you go grocery shopping? Do you feel a rush of happiness breathing in the smells and taking in the sights of a convenience store? Do you look forward to the next meal? Are you full of anticipation as you look to explore a new local place, food, thing? Are you filled with a sense of fascination and joy just going through the days?

I sound like a tourist, but Japan makes me feel that way. I feel happy just being here. I feel like I’m truly alive when I’m here.

I have felt this way since my first visit here 9 years ago, and it will probably be a while before I tire of Japan, if ever.

That’s why when the chance came up, I had to come back.

Of course, it wouldn’t have been possible this time without Danna-san, but that’s a story for another time ;)
