Yokohama Ryuugaku Kikou

About

Hello, welcome, and thanks for visiting!

This blog was an attempt to cover my experience in the Junior Year Overseas program at Yokohama National University (YNU) in a more thoughtful and coherent way than, say, Twitter. Initially inspired by a former JOY Program student and friend who did the same thing, I tried chronicling my adventures around Japan. It didn’t work out too well — I only ended up writing some 30-odd posts here — but I hope you find it interesting.

The title of the blog is a reference to a manga called Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (“Yokohama Shopping Log”); Ryuugaku (留学) means “study abroad”.

If you’d like to get in touch, I’d prefer if you use the comments section first. If you’d like to e-mail me, I can be reached at mattie-at-mattieinjapan-dot-com. ◆
