Pre-Japan Introduction (日本の前の序言)

Well, I've decided to start an webblog recording my travels in Japan during my study abroad. Hooray!


As you can see, I've decided to make this blog bilingual, partly for my own benefit, and partly to show my sensei how my Japanese is (or isn't) progressing.


Of course, the Japanese text will not always be an exact translation of the English text. My Japanese simply isn't good enough to make that plausible, and occasionally, I use expressions that just aren't translatable.


On a side note, I have no idea why this first post is so formal. I guess I kind of feel like I'm writing an essay...


My following posts will definitely be more casual.


(By the way, I'm getting a lot of my vocabulary from online dictionaries... so if I say something weird, please tell me!)


Well, I leave for Kansai on the first of September, so until then!
