Having spent a decade of my life in Japan, it has become an important part of my life. I particularly say “has become” because at the time I was there, it was shaping me in ways I didn’t realize. It’s only when we reflect on the past that we can really make meaningful experiences from it.
There is so much that I only realized later in life, that originated over 6,000 miles away. I like to reminisce from time to time. This is where I do just that.
