Absence – in Japan

By Michael Gakuran | | Journal | 6 Comments |

I should probably just explain my prolonged absence recently – I’ve been back in Japan! I’m here until early September and have been going to all manner of places, including up to Akita International University (AIU) and hitch-hiking back down to Kumamoto where I’m staying with a host family.

The weather is horribly hot at times (but sprinkled with awesome thunderstorms), and I’m enjoying making the most of my time practising Japanese. I’ll be off to Yakushima soon too, so hopefully I will have some good experiences to write about that as well! Expect some nice posts in the coming month or two ^_^.

Oh, and here’s an awesome song by Daniel Powter from his new album ‘Under the Radar’. I think it only just came out, I picked it up in Tsutaya after listening to it in-store. I never bought his debut album, but of course, I heard his famous song ‘Bad Day’ countless times. Anyway, the song is called ‘Next Plane Home’. Check it out ^_^.

    Dan >> Why, thank you. I’ll be sure to visit the ‘Hells of Beppu’ hot springs to hone my evilness before I return to the U.K…
