Welcome

Living in JapanHello everyone, and welcome to my new blog - Tadaimatte. As a bit of background, I returned from living abroad in Japan a little more than a year ago, and have found the adjustment back to life in Canada a little difficult. I think everyone thought me to be a "lifer" once I got over there, but there are important people here whom I hated being so far away from!

I've been looking for ways to connect with my life in Japan and put some of the reverse culture shock and homesickness to rest. I practice yosakoi dancing and aikido, volunteer with exchange students and write for Japan Tourist, and from time to time I pen short stories as well. I felt, why not share some of these struggles, and document some of my memories from Osaka? Thus the creation of this blog. I hope everyone - ex-expats and Japan hopefuls alike - will find something close to home in my writings.
