Meet the Team
In 2017, I embarked on a journey like none other; living as a Caribbean expat in Northern Japan. My enriching experiences of fully immersing myself in the culture while working and living amongst the Japanese has inspired me to create a bridge to help those who are interested in having a similar priceless adventure.
My journey to Japan was one of self-exploration. The JET programme allowed me the opportunity to experience many financial goals and freedom. I would recommend Japan as a place to live and work for a period of one's life. Exposure to the Asian culture in comparison to Western Culture is a welcomed look into many differences in the way in which people live.
My Japan experience was so nice I did it twice! Shortly after leaving Japan in 2016, I returned in 2018 and have been living here ever since. I've had the opportunity to work in a variety of academic institutions at different levels across several of Japan's prefectures. I'd be lying if I said the journey was easy but it has truly been rewarding. Through this platform, I hope to share more of my experiences and expertise with those who are interested.
We have chosen to share some of our favourite photos during our stay in Japan. Enjoy!
