I've created this blog sometime ago but never really started blogging or anything. This will change temporarily as I will be posting some pictures and accounts of my two weeks trip to Japan.
What trip? In July, I received a letter of invitation from the Japan Foundation to participate in a two week trip called the "Japanese-language program for outstanding students" 日本語成績優秀者研修プログラム starting from September 5th.
In two short weeks I had the experience of a lifetime. I've been to Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Tokyo. I've met my friends and teachers, both Japanese and Jordanian and together we spent good times and made good memories.
But that was the easy part! I knew from the outset that I'd have lots of fun. The challenging part was to learn as much as I can within those two weeks. I hope to share some of the fun experiences and learning experiences, and also the fun learning experiences.
To wind up this post here's a new song in Japan by Oda Kazumasa. I heard it the first time in the JAL airplane on my way to Japan and many times in supermarkets and kiosks and now I just can't get it out of my head. It has become the theme song of this trip . I couldn't find the music clip for 'kokoro' (the song's name) so here's the song used as the opening for a drama series.
Enjoy and expect more posts and pictures soon..
Edit note: I just noticed that the sign above and the song name are the same. This nice coincidence led me to change the post's title as you can see!
