Well, It's literally been more than a year sinse I've last posted here.
I sort of left things unfinished, I know... It's basically because I still plan on going back to Japan some day and want to sort of pick up where I left off in terms of this blog when that happens.
In the mean time, some very cool related news! First off, my cousin Eric, 17 years old, is going to Japan as an exchange student at a Japanese highschool in Fujisawa, Kanagawa prefecture. I'm soooo excited and proud of him. Basically after I returned from Japan he had an interest in learning Japanese so I got him started with some basics and pointed him to a lof of the great resources that I've found useful in my journey through the Japanese language.
Now he's embarking on his own adventure (check out his blog @ http://eric-japantrip.blogspot.com/ )
Secondly, I get e-mail messages frequently asking me questions about Working Holiday Visa, GenkiJACS, Japanese study, and so on.. So, I've decided to start up a website/blog of sorts basically dedicated to sharing everything I know about studying Japanese including links to resources, reviews of tools, websites, schools, etc. and general tips and tricks.. I'm super excited to get this website off the ground and hope to nurture it and help it grow.
So, all you people with questions about Japan that you want to ask me, don't hestitate to continue writing me, but check out my website which might point you in the right direction aswell: www.SakuraBranch.com
Until I actually go back to Japan, any Japan-related posts I make will be on that website, so bookmark it, set it as your homepage, RSS follow it, whatever..
