I’m a 25-year-old educator in Fukuoka, Japan just sharing my thoughts about this strange and beautiful country.

The name “amakara” means sweet and salty in Japanese. Something like “sweet and spicy” to Americans, I guess. I think it kind of describes me as a person and also what I have to say about my experiences. Some of them are sweet, some of them…not so sweet. Mostly I just like the way amakara sounds, though.

  1. Good blog, interesting! I admire your perseverance. It is a big deal to go to a whole new country and culture and try to adapt! I am hoping, at a minimum, to visit Kagoshima someday, as I’ve seen other parts of Japan. I would also love to teach English there someday, perhaps a few years down the road. Keep up the good work!
