A New Place!

Two weeks ago I was offered a new position in another prefecture, on another island in Japan. I accepted the offer, gave my two weeks notice to the school I was then working, and today I will be on the train to my new place.  

I will be teaching business English at a corporation - all adult students, and almost all one to one lessons.  I have two classes with two students each.  I think this will suit me better than teaching/playing with children.  

So, do you want to know where I am moving to today? 


I'm going to be in the red area on the largest island.  The big island in the north is Hokkaido, where I lived for four years.  The island in the southwest is where the recent earthquakes were/are.  The smaller island to the east of that island is where I have been living for the last couple of months. 

I'm thinking of the time spent on Shikoku as a working vacation.  I was fortunate to see and participate in many things in the area.  I've met and made friends with some wonderful people.  Thank you! 

I will try to continue to post every day, but I don't know what is to come next and what my time will be like. Off on another big adventure.....


  1. Good luck on your new endeavor.

  2. Enjoy your adventure, looking forward to the posts and pictures.

  3. I wish you luck, keep us posted.

  4. Knowing you, you will succeed in anything you do. Enjoy the adventure, drink plenty of green tea and explore your new area.

  5. Wow Pamela, on the move again! Best of luck with the new teaching, sounds like it's going to be enjoyable

  6. OMGosh!! I looked at the date of the post just to be sure it was a current post!! I'm not sure I would want to move again so quickly, but you sure did do a lot of sight seeing while you were at your last stop. It sound like your new job is a perfect opportunity, but I sure hope that your next place to live is in better shape when you move in. Let us know how THAT works out too. Best of luck to you at your new "adventure".
