One day, scrawny seventh grade Andy said to himself while watching his favorite television show, “Man, Dragonball Z is the bomb! I want to learn more about the culture from which it came!!1! I wonder if mushroom hair cuts are still in because I have one!” From that point on I have been fixated with Nippon. In 2006 my dreams were realized when I was able to travel to Japan by myself as a 19 year old. The experience was better than anticipated.
Now having, finished college with a degree in Photography and Graphic Design (my portfolio site can be viewed here) I am back in the Land of the Rising Sun once more.
This time is different, however. Having found a job teach English in two public high schools in Kitakyushu, a city in the southern most of Japan’s four main islands, I have successfully jumped through the hoops to land a 1 year visa. I have a very small apartment and little money, but life is very good right now. I plan to continue to blog and post videos about my experiences in the great country of Japan.
Stay tuned and enjoy my posts.
