Hi. I’m Kim.
A Canadian who’s lived in the Land of the Rising Sun for close to 30 years. I’d very much love to share with you my take on this amazing roller coaster of an adventure. Living in the thick of this mind-blowing culture, I feel I have something to contribute to your understanding of Japan.
28 years ago, I arrived in Japan with a serious plan to stay for 3 months…at the MOST. Armed with a working holiday visa, and a deep desire to become skillful in the art of Aikido, I planted my feet on Japanese soil…or rather, concrete…and for nearly 26 years, the adventure has not allowed for a single moment to catch my breath. Somehow, I would like to give you a glimpse of this unfathomable journey that continues to unfold.
I LOVE Japan. No matter WHAT, I will always love it. I hope you can savour even a slight bit of the delicious and remarkably life-shaping experience that living abroad in Japan has gifted me with. I hope you can walk away from your computer, after having read my episodes, and ponder what this is really all about. Enjoy. I have.
So, sit back, strap on your seat belt, and let’s go!!!!
