I babysit for an amazing Japanese family that introduces me to their culture and is also teaching me how to cook. Anyone that knows me knows that I can burn water so I’m pleasantly surprised with my skills.
So today I brought my ticket to Japan and I’m going to pick up my visa from the consulate. It’s all becoming so real that I won’t be home for a year! I have been studying like crazy but I know I will be very far behind the other exchange students as far as Japanese speaking ability is concerned. I’m headed to Japan early to attend a 3 week course at Yamasa Institute in Okazaki! It will be about 60 hours of intensive learning. Still have no idea how I can get from Okazaki to Tokyo so if any of you know please share the details!
