New Beginnings

It is now spring (summer tbh) in Japan and the official season of beginnings! For me it’s the beginning of a new chapter; starting my new job and life in Tokyo. I can’t believe exactly one year ago I decided to take the leap to the unknown and started looking into jobs in Japan. And…

平成ありがとう、令和楽しみしてるよ!

平成5年生まれなので、人生初の新しい時代が始まることがとても不思議な気持ちです この26年間は色々あったけど、今の私はこの時代の子供で、平成時代には感謝してます。 10年前に初めて日本へ行ってきて、日本の文化や言語のこと好きになって、留学や旅行して、色々な経験や友達ができて、今年ついにちゃんとした仕事みつけて、これから日本で住む予定です。やっぱり人生が不思議ですね。 今回日本へ行く時は令和時代なので、これからの日本の生活はとても楽しみにしてます!どんな時代になるのかな?どんなことや経験が待ってるかな? この新しい時代でもよろしくお願いします! 1.5.2019 アンニ

My internship in Tokyo is slowly coming to an end but I’m not ready to go back to Finland and leave my life here behind. I know job hunting in Japan might sound a little intimidating for a foreigner (it sure was for me) and if you can’t speak Japanese your options might be quite…

Thank you 2018, but I’m ready for 2019!

2018 was a year of change for a lot of people, including me; I left my life in Finland behind and came to Japan (not knowing what was waiting for me). It wasn’t easy at times and there was a point I was seriously considering if I’d made the right choice coming here or if…
