like graphic novels? yeah?
I present Tonoharu, the story of an American language teacher in a sleepy Japanese village...sound familiar?
A friend gifted me this book right before I left for Japan, and it mirrored so many of my emotions of living here in small town Japan.

I cant wait to find Part II.
Happy Japanese Haircut Day to me!! I am over the moon excited.
HOME for the next month...

I hope it isnt so unhealthy to be reading so much Woolf
haunting Japanese oil painter, who unfortunately passed away in 2009.
