While my soul is slowly transiting from Tokyo to the east coast of North America (mostly recovering from jetlag) I would like to bring your attention to something current and practical — the blog site of the American University Japanese Program in Washington, D. C. The link is: http://japnau.blogspot.com.
The blog was created and is maintained by my former colleague and friend, Ken Knight. The site reflects Ken’s wide range of personal and professional interests as a Japanese language teacher, as well as his working experiences in Tokyo. The information includes current topics relating to Japan, employment in Japan, Japanese language learning resources and many more.
