My name is Joseph Robertson. I’m volunteering here at Yadoya Guesthouse for the next month!
I just arrived in Tokyo a couple of days ago after a year of studying at Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka. I wanted to spend some time here in Tokyo and try and see some of the differences between Kansai and Kanto myself first-hand before I go back to England!
The first couple of days here have been a lot of fun. Everyone has been really friendly and helped me a lot. So far I’ve had group meetings over bento, a big pasta lunch making session, been shown around the neighbourhood by Aki-san and Kenji-kun and I’ve even learned how difficult it can be to do laundry on a windy rooftop!
During my time here I’m hoping to meet lots of people and practise a bit of Japanese, so if you see me feel free to come and say hi!
Hope to see you all soon,
