I received my placement today! I will be heading to Japan on July 7-August 29, living and teaching on the southern island of Kyushu! Kyushu is the third-largest island of Japan and most southerly and westerly of its four main islands! For those of you wondering, Kyushu is approximately 700 miles from the Fukushima Power Plant and tsunami sites!!
As soon as the semester is over I plan to get a book from the library about Japan and things to do / see in Kyushu! From the photos I have researched on Google, it looks extremely beautiful! I am hoping to extend my trip a week after the 29th to see more of Japan- Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Tokyo- and to experience the bullet train!! I am so excited; I cannot wait to see what fun adventures Japan will bring for me this summer!! If all goes as planned it looks like I will be returning the DAY before school starts; I can’t wait!!
