4 weeks into Japan and I feel like I haven't eaten enough delicious foods, visited enough fantastic places. or met enough wonderful people yet! There's so much I want to do before the winter season comes. I want to ride my bicycle to the beach, visit the thing they call " The Godzilla Rock," swim under a waterfall, and travel across Japan! With goals, come ambition; and with ambition, comes effort. Effort takes time, and there is not enough time in the world for me to experience everything. I want to do so much things, it almost feels as if I haven't done anything this week. My pictures, however, tell a different story.
It's only been a little over two weeks since I got here in Akita International University and this place already feels too small. There is one thing a person must realize before they come here: there is nothing surrounding the school. There are a few shops, but this place is like the island of Lana'i. Everything closes early. If you get hungry after 9 o'clock and have no food in your refrigerator, you have to take a 15 minute bus ride to the nearest mall. On top of all of that, if you miss the last bus home, you have to walk back to school through a bear infested forest in the pitch black of night.
