Assistant Abroad: Christmas in Japan!

It’s been far too long since I’ve written a proper post here- my excuses include Japanese video games, myriad trips to Kyoto, the dreaded exams and the odd karaoke night. Having just experienced Christmas in Japan, I knew at once that everything I have seen and experienced in the last two days needs to be documented while it’s still fresh in my mind!

Even being in the shade provides barely any respite from the stifling heat in Osaka that just smothers everyone! Some smart people use umbrellas as parasols, some wear shorts. In my infinite wisdom, I brought a few pairs of skinny jeans… Also, indoors it is just as hot as outside unless you have access to air con…(Read More)
