読者の皆様、明けましておめでとうごさいます！旧年読んでいただき、ありがとうございました。本年もよろしくお願いします。 Happy New Year, readers! (Again…) Here’s a look at my 2013 in Review from Jetpack and my food resolutions for 2014!

One of the aspects I hadn’t anticipated as much regarding my culture shock expectations was adjusting to Americanized- and fusion Japanese food, especially for foods that I encountered for the first time in Japan. This isn’t to say that American-Japanese food isn’t delicious–quite the contrary–but it can be a bit alarming at times to see…
I finally got to attend the 2013 Snow Monkey Beer Live, an annual craft beer and live music festival in Shiga Kogen, Nagano, which took place from March 16-17.

Happy New Year, everyone! 明けましておめでとうございます！ Since I bought my own domain name, I don’t get WordPress’s year-end stats for my site anymore, so I thought I would round up some of my most popular posts and my goals for next year as a 年末年始 (new year’s holidays; lit. year-end-year-beginning) exercise.
