I’d like to officially announce that I’m in love with the south of France – if I wasn’t sure before, I am 100% positive now. The first few steps into Marseille, it’s a little bit run down and strange and you’re not really sure what you’ve gotten yourself into, other than the fact that it was only €2 to get here. Walk a little bit further and you’re greeted with the beautiful port and now you’re not really sure you want to ever leave.
Bonjour tout le monde! I genuinely CANNOT believe that I am finally in Aix-en-Provence – studying abroad in France has been a dream of mine ever since I visited Paris and started college, and after months of what seemed like bad news, I finally made it! The south of France has been more than I could’ve dreamed for and more.

As much as I love being from Tokyo, this city has half my heart. Maybe because it explains why I don’t look stereotypically Japanese, or because it’s home – despite never having lived there, it carries a feeling of nostalgia. If you ever get the chance to visit Japan, I would highly recommend stopping by the island of Okinawa for palm trees, beaches and delicious food.
This past Thanksgiving break, I was fortunate enough to get the chance to visit the Netherlands on a school trip. I remember my heart thumping and hands fidgeting as I waited for the clock to hit 8PM to register for the class everyone wanted, and I couldn’t believe my luck when I had managed to snag one of the 18 spots.
My brothers and I have always shared similar hobbies – it started with soccer and tennis, and over time has grown to include fashion and photography. As frustrating as they can be, its nice to have a “friend” who’s always willing to go do things with you. My older brother and I are back home in Tokyo, Japan as we currently have winter breaks, which I love because it gives me more time to explore my creative outlets that I don’t get to when I’m at school.
