I’m Laura, the new ALT. This is my first time in Japan and I’m really excited to be here. Hokkaido is so beautiful, but I’ve been surprised at how hot it is!
I am from London, England. There are 7.5 million people living in London. It has a large underground train system (like Tokyo) and many beautiful buildings. London is always busy, even when it’s raining.
I always thought London was a big city, but not in comparison to Tokyo. Tokyo is massive! It’s a very impressive city with huge skyscrapers, tiny markets and so many noodle shops.
I don’t eat with chopsticks in England so I’ve been learning fast in Japan. I can eat most food with chopsticks now, but still find noodles quite difficult.
I'm really looking forward to writing a blog about my time in Japan. I've seen so
many interesting things already. I don't speak much Japanese yet (I'm trying to learn though) but please do come and say hello.
