Self-introduction

My major at university was British and American Literature. I became interested in the harmony between the West and the East while studying how British and American Literature was affected by Eastern ways of thought, like Buddhism. I got into Japanese language education through my work in interpretation and translation. I started thinking that I wanted to communicate all the fun and interesting things about Japan to people in other countries, so I went to graduate school to study Foreign Language Education and Japanese Language Research, and became a Japanese language instructor. My hobbies include singing, cooking, and traveling. I stay in an area with a lot of nature, and am always enamored by the shifting of the seasons. It would be great if my students could learn how fun it is to interact with other cultures and expand their own worldview, so they can experience and appreciate Japanese sensibilities and ways of thinking through the Japanese language itself.
