Perspective

Dear Japan, Thank you for granting me a working visa last week – it looks like I’m here for another year. As of next Wednesday I’ll have been living Japan for 18 months (where did that time go?) and while my Japanese is still terribly poor, I’ve changed a lot. I’ve learnt how to deal … Continue reading

Canal Cafe

Spring made it’s first appearance here in Tokyo yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. Seriously! My excitement for a day of warmer weather and sunshine was so high you’d believe it was Christmas. With such beautiful weather there was no better way to spend the afternoon than at Canal Cafe, a restaurant by canal in … Continue reading
