10 avsnitt

In the Spring of 2008 I will be traveling to Kawagoe, Japan to study at Tokyo International University through the Japan Studies Program. While school is the focus, it's only part of the adventure. This is the first of many trips I hope to make around the world and I will be sharing it with the world here.

    Coke, Mentos, Mocchi, Hammers, Swords, Sticks, Buses, and Planes. Need I say more?

    10 months after leaving Japan I still hadn't gotten around to putting together one last episode of this video podcast. I guess it was because, more than anything else, I didn't have a theme, just an amalgamation of other things from elsewhere during the trip. I also felt strange about tying this series to a close. It was an emotional moment for all involved and I would hate for this to bring about bad blood.

    It's been my sincerest wish that the people that made this trip special felt comfortable with the entire process and that they were respected throughout my project. Thank you so much to all of you for making this trip the experience of a lifetime. It made me only more certain of what I want to do with my life and what I want to strive towards. Best wishes to all of you.

    How I Spent My Golden Week Vacation

    How I Spent My Golden Week Vacation

    I thought it was gonna be a pretty easygoing trip to Hakone, but as it turns out, my host family doesn't screw around when it comes to vacations. From Hakone, to Kawaguchi, to Fuji, to Yamanashi, this is a taste of the other side of Japan . . . you know, the part that hasn't been paved.

    The Kansai Experience

    The Kansai Experience

    We took a week off from our regularly scheduled classes to take a trip to the Kansai region of Japan via Shinkansen. Along the way we visited Miyajima, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka. Needless to say it was far too much to fully appreciate in such a short span of time, but that just gives me the excuse to come back again.

    Okonomiyaki and Other Vice

    Okonomiyaki and Other Vice

    My host brother is pretty inventive when it comes to his toys. With a little malevolence, he could potentially take over the world. Fortunately for us, he is content just firing rubber bands at his brothers and some Lego people. After that is a stroll through Kawasaki's Kanamara-sama Festival (WARNING: NSFW). Last but not least, if you ain't ever had it, you ain't never lived. It's Okonomiyaki time!
