    I just (finally) got news I get to study Japan!

    My teacher says we'll start with culture, history and conversational Japanese. I'm ecstatic! Does anyone have any book/video ideas or tips for this? I want to be super prepared when we start! :D

    You know you've been in Japan too long when.

    Where do you like going? What do you like doing? What do you like eating and drinking there? I'd be interested to find out.
