I am in Japan!!! A long way from Adelaide, Australia, but here I am in Shizuoka for a year teaching at an English Kindergarten while seeing and experiencing as much of this crazy, mixed up, amazing country as I can!
Between returning from Hokkaido and heading on to Kyoto we spent a few days in Shiz with Marissas parents. Mrs Nagata had a BBQ with hilarious results- the Japanese really dont know how to do a barbecue like the Aussies- and Spiro was nearly beside himself at the lack of heat and know how on display!!
We went to Mishima for their Summer Festival, and saw some traditional dances and costumes. Most importantly the clouds parted long enough for us to see Mt Fuji from the Shink station at Fuji City- thank you mountain goddess!!!! That night we took Spiro and Karina into the city and to experience a bit of Boozer- the highlight being GYOOOOOOOOZZZZAAAAA on the way home!!!
After an amazing, unforgettable year in Japan I dragged a way too heavy bag on wheels through Europe for more fantastic adventures. 5 years later I am off on a 9 week tour of SE Asia.
