Some Reasons We Chose Japan...

  • We get to live in Asia (an area of the world neither of us have explored)
  • Sushi - daily, maybe for every meal
  • Our dear, dear friends live there
  • Maximo gets to grow up with our dear, dear friends' kids
  • Seasons - especially autumn leaves and cherry blossoms in the spring
  • Purchasing a bike with a basket on the front and a seat on the back for Max
  • Max will start school in August '09 and come to school with us everyday
  • We will be able to furnish our apartment from the local IKEA
  • We can actually order English literature through Amazon.jp
  • Learning about Japanese culture and history - something we know very little about
  • Cleanliness and order
  • We won't have to own a car
  • Great public transportation throughout the country
  • Being back on a normal northern hemisphere school year
And there are probably many other things we don't even know about yet that we'll love...

Those all sound like great reasons and would all be reasons why I would choose Japan, except for the sushi part. This vegetarian just can't handle sushi. :)

As someone who has lived in Japan for 18 months. I agree 150% with everything you have said. There is not a day that goes by that I do not LOVE living in Japan.

Cannot wait to have you over for dinner and games.
