About Me

My name is Olivia and this is a blog about my year abroad in Japan. From September 13th 2013 to September 13th 2014 I lived in Tokyo and studied at Hitotsubashi university.

I wanted to record all the wonderful experiences and memories that awaited me in Japan, as well as share them with family and friends. From food and drink, through to music and other cultural aspects, I posted everything on here.

UPDATE: It has been over a year since I left Japan. I graduated in June 2015 and now work for a Japanese investment bank in London. I still have plans to visit Japan for holidays/business and may look into blogging about it on here.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me, or leave me a comment.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi Olivia. Enjoy your stay in Japan. I have been visiting the Kansai region every year since 2005. My heart is in Kyoto.

    • Hello! Thank you so much 🙂 I’ve been to Kyoto once for a few days and I thought it was a really beautiful place. I definitely want to go back there for a bit longer! Could you recommend any other places?
