On Monday I finally went in for some acupuncture. It took me a while to find someone who speaks English in my area. Most are up in Tokyo. It sounds like a lot of businesses in Tokyo actually have English speaking personnel. Anyway, I thought you all might like to hear what Japanese acupuncture is like in Japan. Keep in… Read more »

Japanese Culture Twists Part One

      Comments Off on Japanese Culture Twists Part One

Sorry for not writing in a while, I’ve been so busy with work and the summer has finally arrived, so I’ve been going out more.  I don’t understand why so many people hide behind the gate here on base.  The culture is different, but not that hard to figure out (only the language – oh, and the food!).  I thought… Read more »

Tokyo Disneyland is very similar to our Disneyland out in Califoria.  I was told by a mother at school that the… Read more »

Until my next real blog, I wanted to share some pictures with you.  Enjoy! My last class went on a field trip to the Aquarium in Shinagawa.  And all the moms had cameras galore!  These are some of the cuter pics.  I don’t think you want to see the ones of me saying “get back here!”

Arrival in Japan

I made it!  I am here, safe and sound, in Yokosuka, Japan.  Of course, it rained as I got off the plane on Friday the 13th.  Then, we had to play tetris to get all of our luggage into the tiny little vans they have out here.  Once that was all done we made it to our hotel and were… Read more »
