日本での一年間

About this blog

The purpose of this blog is to document my time in Japan. In August 08 I arrived in Japan and began two months of language school in Tokyo. And in October I begin studying at a Japanese university in Tokyo, until August 09. One full year in Japan. (minus a week I spent in Shanghai.) At the end, I intended to have a sort of blog diary with at least 365 photos that could represent my year in Japan. I had many more than 365 photos, but about half-way through the year, I abandoned this poor blog.
Almost a year after leaving Japan, I’m back in Japan again for at least a year and I’ve brought this blog back to life. This time I am nowhere near Tokyo. Instead, I will am in the Japanese inaka (countryside), which is quite a different experience.

There are 2 cameras that I use to take these pictures. I have a point and shoot 5 megapixel Casio Exilim from 2005, but most pictures are taken with my Nikon D80, which I’ve had since 2008.For the D80, I have 3 lenses. A 35 mm fixed lens, a 18 to 50 mm lens (a kit lens), and a 18 to 200 mm telephoto lens.

Please enjoy the blog!

  3. I like the picture of the big fabric elephant. I didn’t know there was an India exposition in Japan, but why not?

  4. I bumped into your blog. I really enjoyed reading your posts. My sister moved to Japan in 1986 for the first time and after a year she lived in Hong Kong. In 1988 she went back to Japan and has lived there since. She is now married for many years to a Japanese man. I have been there to visit her once in 1997. I love Japan. I think I found your site looking for info on canned coffee. She recently came to Canada (our home and where she is originally from) and brought a canned jelly coffee. I hadn’t had that kind before, but I do love the hot canned coffee. One of my fond memories that always takes me back there. It was nice to see your pics and read about your experiences there. Keep blogging!
