Here are some of the reasons I love it here -
Mt Fuji...is remarkably close to where I live. Two hours of car time and I am there breathing in its awesomeness. I have been twice and as you can see my photo taking ability has really improved in the six months in between.
I came to Japan not really digging seafood all that much but I've come to realise that it is all about the quality. the small shrimp you can see are a specialty in my region.
I've never been a plant and flower person but I have done a giant 180. The plant life here is simply spectacular.

It is everywhere and being from Australia means I am REALLY not used to that. I love hearing the trickling water and even the rainy season.

It's sweetness incarnate and oh so very pretty.
Of course there is also the people and my students but they are entitled to their privacy and as such won't be posted. Japan is a wonderful place and I hope you've enjoyed seeing a little of it :)
