Holly's Journey to Japan

Current Location

Nagakute, Aichi, Japan

Hi! I'm Holly, and I'm looking forward to sharing my life in Nagakute, Japan with you. We'll explore Japan's ancient culture and learn as much as we can in these next few weeks together!


This week the weather became colder, the wind became stronger and it snowed a couple times! We are definitely approaching the coldest part of the year in Japan.


Since coming to Japan, I have met people from over nine different countries from around the world. Growing up in a different culture means behaving differently. How do I adjust to these perspectives?

Field Notes

I interviewed one of my fellow exchange students, Aaron. He grew up in England and has been living in Japan for over six months. Let's get to know him.


This weekend, my friends and I visited Jigokudani Yaen-Koen, or Japanese Snow Monkey Park, located in the northern part of Nagano Prefecture. Check it out!
