Konichiwa Katano, Hajimemashite

Welcome to my blog! My name is Kirstin Johnson and I’m from Vancouver, Canada. I am moving to Katano-Shi, Osaka-Fu, Japan in July 2016 to start a year teaching as an ALT with the JET Programme.

I am excited, nervous, optimistic, hopeful and am looking forward to starting my year after the long JET application process. I hope this blog will be a place where I can share my new experiences, discuss what I learn as an English teacher, and record some of the adventures of my year.

I hope you enjoy.
