I have been in Japan for about 9 years now. I currently live near Fussa. I travel all over japan with my job. Spend a few months a year in Okinawa and occasionally make it to Hokkaido. I like to drive and eat out at restaurants. I have not learned to speak Japanese. I'm not sure if I just lost hope or just didn't give it enough effort. So for the most part I travel around pointing to get what I want. I'm originally from Tampa Fl and just miss talking with native English speaking folks.
