Hi, I’m James and I’m from Perth on the west side of Australia. Perth is a really beautiful city with great beaches and even better weather. I finished university last year and decided to come to Japan to give myself different opportunities and experiences.
I studied accounting at university but I had no real interest in Japan until the end of my studies. A trip to Tokyo with friends in 2014 really opened my eyes to Japan and sowed the seed for why I’m here now.
I have been here since April and have loved it so far. I have really enjoyed travelling and meeting new people. Of course work is great too…
My highlight so far would have to be climbing Mount Fuji. I think the old saying holds true however and climbing it once is enough for me. Apart from work and travel and I have been studying Japanese a fair bit, and trying to speak to people and read kanji has been good fun.
