JET Teacher Laurence's 2017-18 New Year's Post!

Happy New Year to all of our readers!

This past December, I decided I would spend Christmas and New Year in Japan in order to travel and save money. Plane tickets back to Canada usually cost me around $1500! That is over 133,000 Yen!

Instead, I had a video call with my family on Christmas. Then, I went to Numazu, in Shizuoka. The sea was so beautiful. The weather was great too.



I went to Izu-Mito Sea Paradise there. It’s a famous aquarium. My favorite part was the jellyfish tank. You can see Mt. Fuji from the Aquarium. It was very very windy.




I also went to the Numazu Fish market. I had Kaisendon, pickled squid and fish Miso Soup there. Everything was delicious.


A friend from America came to Japan for New Years! I guided her around Tokyo and on the 30th we went to the Winter Comiket. It was at Tokyo Big Sight. I had never been to the Comiket before. It was a very impressive event. There were so many people! It was hard to move around but I am glad I went.

I spent New Years at home. I had a lot of things to do. There are so many things I want to do this year. What are your goals for 2018?
