The Only Gaijin in the Village Chapter 5

Illustration by Justine Wong

Has it really been a month since I last posted? I’ve been neck deep in grading at work but the semester is almost over and I’ve got 7 weeks of novel writing planned, I can’t wait. I’ll also be off to Korea and exploring the narrow road to the deep north (Tohoku) as well as sleeping. A lot.

I’ve still found time for my columns on Gaijinpot and my articles for the Japan Times. If you missed them, here’s a few links:
