Who are you?
I'm a 26-year-old Australian, female participant on the JET Programme. I began my tenure on the JET Programme in March of 2011, just one week after the big Tohoku Earthquake that hit the northern prefectures of Japan's mainland. My experience of Japan has been very different from other JETs but I have tried to learn and grow from my experiences. Now I am planning what to do with the rest of my time in Japan, thinking about what I want to do with my life, and trying to set up a reasonably successful blog about Japan (amidst the baffling cacophony of similar blogs already doing just that). One of my aims in life is to be a (travel) writer or editor. I enjoy teaching English, a discussion of Milton's ethos over a glass of gin, and playing ping pong.
What is this "Izu" you speak of?
The Izu Peninsula is located in the south-east of Shizuoka Prefecture. I hope you enjoy my blog about life on the Izu.
