This is my University. It’s called Nagoya University of Foreign Studies.

次の四か月、ここで勉強します。 日本語とか日本の文化とかを勉強します。

For the next four months, I’ll study here. I’ll study things like Japanese and Japanese culture.

これは、大学りょうです。 私の部屋は二回です。 部屋のとなりはだいどころがあります。

This is my university dorm. My room is on the first floor. Next to my room is a kitchen.


When I first arrived, I was helped into a bus and taxi. At the airport, bus station and uni dorm, I met other students.

On Friday, we went to Ise Grand Shrine. We entered, then before continuing, washed out hands and mouth.

After we arrived here, we saw the Kagura. In the second photo is where we saw them. Behind the blue curtain was the Kagura. It was a big tatami room.

After that, it rained. I also didn`t have an umbrella. But I went to this shrine. I gave 50 yen, and made a prayer.


Then I saw some other shrines.

The next day, I went to Nagoya Castle. My tour guides were Ryo, Reiko and Haruka.

First, we went to Hommaru. I took off my shoes, and walked around inside.

I'm 25, and I blog to improve my writing; I want to be good enough to be published. I also studied Japanese when I was younger. Luckily, I'll be able to continue those studies along with Creative Writing next year in University.

One thought on “First Week in Japan

  1. FUN! You are going to have a blast. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to find me a recipe for Tantanmen. It will do us both good. Great Japanese!!!
