On this overcast day, I visited two beautiful gardens and one beautiful Inari shrine. At night, I dined in the @Home Cafe of Akihabara.
I'm writing to apologize for the delay in getting the rest of my semester uploaded to this blog. Things have been busy since returning...
I realized that I hadn't actually shared my trip to Takarazuka, so although I have only a few pictures, let's get going!
The evening of the day I visited the Takarazuka Revue, I went down to the bus terminal with my packed suitcase. I was very, very prepared to get there on time and to end up in the right spot. The night bus that I would be taking to Tokyo was less than taking the bullet train (shinkansen) or an airplane, but it still wasn't cheap. I showed up 45 minutes in advance of the departure time. I didn't want to take the wrong bus, and I had screenshotted the location of the bus stop in preparation. I was really anxious. Everything turned out fine though!
This covers since the last post up until my departure to Tokyo!
Things have been super duper duper busy between school and the weekends. But I've continued to take pictures, and I'm going to do my best to fill you in on the recent happenings.
Gosh, where have I been? There hasn't been a blog post in two weeks! Gosh, where haven't I been?
Hello, hello! It's Robin again, coming at you live from the comfort of my desk. Which is in my room, which you haven't seen yet. Until now! BAM.
Today, classes began for the Asian Studies Program. The schedule operates on a basis of five periods, beginning at 9:00 am and ending at around 6:10 pm. Thursdays I have Intercultural Communication with Dr. Lind during the final period of the day. I think I'm really going to enjoy his class!
Howdy! I'm definitely getting settled into life here in Japan. The orientation week has been very generous, and I'm glad we weren't thrown immediately into academic work when there's so much to learn just about living here.
Hello from Japan! This is Robin, day 5 into this trip and day 3 in Japan if you count my arrival in the evening of January 17th.
Hi! This is my post on this blog. Welcome to my Journey to Japan, where I'll be studying abroad for the spring semester in the year 2018. Pay no attention to the stock photo that I'm using as an image for both my first post and my header (for now).
