I see that people keep on following me even though my tumblr has been untouched for a long time but I appreciate that there are visitors passing by here once in a while. Now that I’m back in UK, I’ll try upload as much as possible during my trip in Japan as well as Barcelona.
Once again, thanks for following me!
Hello! I’m still here until monday next week. I feel that we might a have a great sense of style when scrolling down through your blog. Let’s meet up at school maybe?
Thanks I only got a week left. Time pass by so quickly. Oh when were you here? and where are you from?
I know right, Kansai Gaidai students are awesome! I love taking photos of them.
Sorry, I don’t know the football team neither do I know dance group from our university
Sorry for my late reply and thank you so much!
Yes Kansai Gaidai University is amazing. You should definitely go there! Lovely people, great teachers and wonderful University :)
Little did I know when I thought I knew a lot about Japan but being here for four months (which is not enough), I realised my knowledge about Japan has obviously been through the etic point of view which is purely stereotypical and aesthetic generalized. There is so much more about Japan than just what we see in the media of course but also during observation. What we see is not always what we see. We choose if we want to contemplate it and by doing so, we choose to participate in it and that is when you are truly learning the culture by interacting and not only by watching. I didn’t think of that before until I came to study here. Everything I do suddenly has more meaning as it brings open-mindedness, creativity and the ability to change things and to take new ventures. My experiences here are definitely long-term orientated. What I have gain through my experiences in Japan has not only affect my perception of the country itself but of how I view other cultures as well. In fact, it made me understanding the world rather than myself. It has changed my inner world and quite frankly it made me feel pretty darned small.
Golden Week is over, time to head back to school which I actually do looking forward to since I only have one month left here. Can you believe it? One month! That can only mean final exams and crazy times! I’ll be arriving to Sweden on the 5th of June and I’ll be booking a trip to Barcelona to meet my dearest Micaela at the end of June. So I won’t probably be back to London at the end of July. There’s many things to look forward this summer but for now I’m going to enjoy as much as possible of my last month in Japan.
