About this site

The blog's owner at the beach

This site is Janette's.

She studied Japanese because she thought that studying English alone would not set her up for a well-paying job. At the time she did not suspect that studying Japanese would not, either.

Janette also did not suspect that Japan would be her home for more than ten years when she packed her things and left for Japan. But she fell in love with her new life in the rural south of Japan.
The food, the people, the culture.

And so she stayed.

This blog is meant to share my enthusiasm for Japan. If you like Japan, you might enjoy what you find here.
