JAPANESE RESEARCH

The above text in Japanese, for all you other gaijin is "Author - Travis Heermann."

 

I've put together this page for anyone interested in Japan and its culture. As an American Midwesterner transplanted into such an alien culture, I felt like I adjusted well and embraced a lot of fascinating differences, even the ones that were a pain in the ass.

 

Photo Journals

 

At the time, I put together a series linear photo journals of my experiences during that first month after I moved there. Rhyme and reason are a bit scarce at times, because I was so overwhelmed by everything. Anyone traveling or moving to Japan may find some useful tidbits herein and what to look for and what to expect.

 

I'll be honest--now that I'm back in the States and have been for a couple of years, there are still many days when I miss it terribly. The land, the town, my students, the friends I left behind... Part of me is still living in that piece-of-crap apartment in Chikugo City.
