Boutux adventure in the land of the rising sun...
I have arrived in Japan 2 days ago. I'm here to be an Assistance Language Teacher (ALT). I will be living in Ogi City, Saga Prefecture in the next week or so. I was posting all stuff related to going to Japan in the study thread but it might be better to start my own thread. I'm having training for the next few days so I would not see anything substantial about Japan till after training. I can say it's really cold here in Fukuoka Prefecture (southern Japan) and it's been fun getting to know the other ALTs.
I will post more about this on going experience later. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Glad to hear you got there safely. I was hoping you would check in with us. The other day I watched a youtube video of someone who is doing training at the same company you are (i'm not gonna mention the name). Let's just say his experiences haven't been the best. I was worried about you I hope your training is going better than his.

i've taken a few pics like group lunch pics. we had a trainee drinking party last night. nomi houdai i think is is called. sad things i've been so busy and stressed with prepping to go to japan and being here for training that i've forgotten everything other than the japanese for good morning, hello, and thank you. it's so sad! lol. training has been good so far but tomorrow we expect it to be horrible cuz other ppl from tokyo will be training us. there were 2 training groups, 1 in tokyo who reported having a really difficult training. my group has been in fukuoka and the trainers here have been nice. they warned us that the tokyo trainers will be coming tomorrow and will give us a hard time. we were told no matter what happens just take it, grin and bear it. so that is what i will do. 3 days and i won't have to see those tokyo trainers ever again, i can handle 3 days of misery. lol. i will try to upload pics when training is over.

Ganbatte! Hopefully they are exaggerating just to make you squirm. I'm sure you can handle it!
*edit* I keep misspelling the romaji :O I guess I have been away from anime and Jdramas too much lol
