With 3 years in Aomori and 1 year in Fukushima under my belt, I've discovered that Japan has so much more to offer beyond hyper-urban cities and cultural stereotypes. I enjoy nature, adventure, and new experiences, which puts me right at home in the wilder, less populated areas of Japan. I am eager to find new places to see and things to do, and I want to spread my experiences in the Japanese backcountry to the rest of the world.
