Welcome to my new blog! As most of you know I'm headed for Japan come August 1st. I decided to start this to let you keep up with me as I leave.
So far, I know that I am in a tiny town in Hokkaido. The town has about 3,000 people. It gets a ton of snow in the winter and apparently is a great place to ski (I guess I'll have to learn!). It stays reasonably cool year round (winter lows in the teens and summer highs of about 75). It will take some adjusting to get used to, but I think it will be a great place to be.
