We will be living in Hokkaido, which is the most northern island of Japan. I was hoping for a warm beach for this return to Japan, but I guess we were not so lucky. Initially when I found out we were heading North, I was a wee bit dissapointed, however, the more I read about Hokkaido, the more I am excited to get to know a part of Japan that we may never had the drive to visit in the first place more intimately. It does look beautiful and I hear the people and the food are superb!
For more info on Hokkaido and its natural beauty here is the main tourist site: We are specifically being placed in Kamisunagawa, population 4000. The town's official website is here: http://www.town.kamisunagawa.hokkaido.jp Well here's hoping for an awesome year. We got some packing to do for the time being; as the year progresses will keep you all up to date with some awesome photos and stories as the weeks progress!
I think we may be placed in a housing unit with a bit of space to put up friends and family; would be great to see you our parts. If you need to plan your visit here's the official tourist website: http://en.visit-hokkaido.jp
Taiga's ready to take on Japan!
