I’m Joachim from Belgium, and right now, I’m staying for a month and a half in Kyushu!
I came to Japan to spend the summer vacation away from my tiny country, practice my terrible Japanese and (try to) apprehend a new culture!
Sofar, I have met a lot of people in Fukuoka and Nobeoka, and people have been overly kind to me.
Kyushu feels really exotic for me, because Belgium is a relatively cold country with little to no mountains or beaches.
Japan is such a refreshing sight for me!
I look forward to spending some time in Yurarikko, because I like to exchange ideas with others, and because
I have never taught in my life, so it might be a good initiation!
So far, I have really enjoyed Takemaru, its surroundings and its inhabitants.
Everybody has been kind and open, and the scenery is just beautiful here.
Thank you all for welcoming me warmly!
