I did not know that i would be living and working in Nippon (Japan). This opportunity to live and work here has assured my lifestyle of an itinerant mondain. i always referred to myself as a modern day nomad but now i know that this is what i am going to become.
Nihongo is a beautiful place. It reminds me of my original homeland, my birth place, Nepal. The tiny mountainous island nation reminds me of the land of my ancestors, a tiny mountainous landlocked nation. I entered the Nihongo immigration in a city called Narita on February 7the 2008. This was to begin my voyage where I did not speak the local tongue. A lot of people call me crazy for doing this but then how could I pass an opportunity to test my sense of adventure and the ability to absorb, adjust, and adapt a new culture and environment.
I currently live in south Nippon in a smaller city called Kitakyushu. By the way Nihongo or Nippon is the local name of the country. This city has an exciting history and ambiance. This city is a consortium of five original cities which was created in 1963. The city is centred around the ancient feudal city of Koukura and made from the amalgamation of four more cities, Moji, Tobata, Yahat, and Wakamstsu. I live and work in Kokura, the downtown of Kitakyushu.
