About

Stray Cats and Onsen logo 1Stray Cats and Onsen is inspired from my 2013 summer study abroad experience at Ritsumeikan Asia-Pacific University in Beppu. Although I won’t go into details about the APU Gateway program, you can find info here: http://www.apu.ac.jp/academic/page/content0171.html

I am a 24-year-old student of English and web design. I started teaching myself Japanese in high school, doodling kana and kanji during classes and reading Genki textbooks (my school only offered French and Spanish). I have been in love with Japanese pop culture ever since. Visiting Japan completed one of my two lifetime wishes (the other is to finish writing my sci-fi novels). I think everyone who visits comes away with their own version of Japan, and this is mine.

I’m on hiatus because work and study have become very time consuming, but I hope someday to return to this blog and continue on!
