u seem to be confusing me with some 20 year old kid that has just moved here?
im in a 7 year relationship, happily married for over 2 of those years.
i think i may actually be older than u?
ive been in and out of Japan for the last 11 years, living here for 3.
I know what im doing, but i do appreciate the concern &)
its a shame u had such a bad experience living in Japan, I personally love it here
If you love everything about Japan and most Japanese peoples attitudes to foreigners then you are deluded and living in a bubble. Not speaking the language probably contributes to that. I feel sorry for you.
btw Yom, you still havn't mentioned what field you're going into after English teaching..interested to know what moves you're making.
