Hello everyone! Or should I say Konnichiwa~ I have been allowed the wonderful opportunity to go and teach English in Japan for about a year. I have always held a deep appreciation for Japanese culture so this has truly been a blessing for me. Now comes the fun part, and that means preparing the funds for my trip. To give a general summary for what your much appreciated donations would go towards, my plane ticket may cost about $1,000 or more, my apartment for the first two months and a security deposit, the initial transportation to and from work for the first month, and groceries for the first month.
