Welcome to Cross-Cultural Collision! よこそ




Life in Japan for a foreigner is full of misunderstanding. The language and surroundings are different from what you’re used to and everything is strange. Sometimes you make huge mistakes, but they make for great stories later on.

As a foreign woman living in Tokyo since 2015, I’ve had many interesting cross-cultural experiences. Some of them have been enlightening. Others have been downright confusing.

If you live in Japan, or you’re simply interested in what life or culture is like here, this blog is for you! I’ll share with you about living in Tokyo as a “big size”  woman who works in a Japanese school. You’ll hear notable stories of my daily life. I’ll also provide answers to questions that I personally had living here, as well as any questions you have for me.  I hope to entertain you and help you in your journey understand Japan better.
