In these past few weekends, thanks to my friend Miharu, my friends and I were able to see Akita’s beautiful nature, eat its delicious foods, and enjoy its natural hot springs.  Every weekend has been an adventure filled with awe and surprise!

This blog will be stuffed with four different events: My first time driving a tractor, the last Hawaii Food Night at Akita International University, Balancing a 100 pound bamboo pole on my head, and playing in a play place for adults!

Friends and Family are important.  Before coming to Akita International University, I made it a goal of mines to make as many friends with as many people as I possibly can.  And that I did!  This blog will be dedicated to my Tanken Kazoku, or Exploration Family, a group of close friends who have become a part of my everyday life at school.
