Post Time in Japan
How long have you been in Japan? What first brought you here?

I first came to Japan with my parents when I was in junior high. They still live here, and after completing my undergraduate work in the US, my husband and I moved here. We've been here ever since.

In February 2008 I came to Japan for the first time in my life, and I came with the intention to stay here. I felt at home immediately. Two weeks later I was married, which of course, was my reason for coming here.

Been here nearly 7 years, dragged kicking and screaming by my partner, Linda. Haven't regretted it though. Still the call of the homelands is getting stronger. I just hope the surge of life we've breathed into the Kansai region lasts after we've gone.
