Hey there, glad you found me.
Love Japan? Read on.
I’m Jessica. I’m into running, yoga, and reading prolifically. I also love
all most things Japanese, and have dedicated the last five years of my life studying the language, culture and politics.
I have now finished my four year degree at the University of Leeds, UK, including a year living abroad in Kobe, studying at Konan University. From September 2013, I have been living in Japan, first in Kochi Prefecture, then in Tokyo. I now work at the British Embassy in Tokyo.
I am aiming to complete 101 things from a special list that I wrote back before I went to Japan for the first time, in the hope that I will have experienced a wide range of Japanese culture and made the most of my year abroad.
There is so much to do and so little time, but why don’t you join me and see how I get on? You can subscribe to my blog via RSS or email to get the latest updates, or you can follow 101 Things in Japan on twitter.
I predict another year of crazy shenanigans, amazing adventures, cultural smacks in the face and more.
Will I do it? Stay tuned to find out.
