Spring is coming, which means it has been about 1 year since I moved to Japan! I came early last April right before the start of the new school year. I remember the weather was about the same as it is now — windy but not that cold. I’ve started to notice more flowering trees around town and many students have stopped wearing jackets (I still need to wear a coat everyday, so I can’t quite understand this!), so I can really imagine that it’s Spring already!
Since I moved here I’ve become much more comfortable with living in a small town and enjoying simple daily life. Ogaki is a nice place to live if you want to relax and have a slower lifestyle. Of course it’s also been exciting to learn about Japan and meet so many students, so I am happy to be celebrating a one-year anniversary here soon!
