I’m back

A year and 11 days after I left Japan, I’m back in this crazy country. Didn’t expect that.

For those who don’t know what this is: this used to be the blog I kept while travelling overland from Singapore to Beijing and onwards to Japan last year. Sorry, you probably can’t read 95% of it since I wrote most of it in Dutch.

And for those who don’t know what I’m doing now: I somehow ended up getting accepted at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London to study Japanese and Study of Religions, which I started in September 2012. After a very hectic year, I got a language course+internship at a Japanese language school in Sapporo, Hokkaido (you know, the city that once hosted the Olympics, has a Snow Festival but more importantly is home to one of Japan’s most famous beers), and that’s where I am now. I spent three days in Tokyo beforehand, a small update of that will probably be incorporated into a mega one when I actually sit down and write. For now, the short version is that I rented a bicycle once again, got lost once again, visited the Tokyo Skytree, ended up in one of the worst bars of the world, had a good night in Shibuya and now live in Sapporo with about 10 Japanese, one Korean and one Chinese. Other than that, photos will have to suffice.
