As the title says I’m going to be changing the direction of this blog. As it stands my blog is about my life in Japan and my progress on my writing course but as of late I haven’t been able to do anything in regards to studying and my Japanese topics are getting less by the month.
Well it’s been a few weeks since I’ve written a blog and what a few weeks they have been.
Just yesterday my wife took our oldest boy to have an ADHD test at our local doctors. The doctor who ran the test was a specialist in her field and was asked to come in from another hospital.
The Japanese will put on face masks to prevent the spread of influenza and any other winterly virus that is floating around.
What a hell of a week I have had and the worse part of it was that I ended up paying over 2 and a half grand on a broken toe.
Now that Valentine’s Day has passed us I hope you all received and gave chocolates to those special someone’s.
What did I do for Valentine’s Day?
First I would like to say that this review will be brief as I don’t have much time to write a full and detailed review.
You might be wondering why I’m up and about at 4am whilst the majority of the Japanese are still sleeping and why I’m cycling in this deadly cold weather as well.
Living in Japan for almost nine years you would expect my Japanese to be relatively close to native level or perhaps you would think it’s at a decent level to do business and have daily conversations with my fellow Japanese friends without any worries.
Getting around Japan can be easy what with the local transportation and the Japan-Railpass that is offered to us foreigners. The idea that Japan is easy to navigate can be found all over the internet and the truth be told that as a foreigner from an English speaking country I never found it difficult finding my way around. The signs and even some of the announcements are followed up in English and most recently in the last few years a number of other languages have been added. So there is no need to worry if you can’t read the Japanese signs or understand the announcements.
