This week's feature is This Japanese Life, a blog about (you guessed it) life in Japan.
This Japanese Life, founded and maintained by fellow JET member and American Eryk, presents a variety of experiences and elements of life in Japan that may not be so widely known outside the expat community. The blog has been up and running for almost a year now, so there are a number of articles ready for your perusal.
Why I like it
The first TJL post that I happened upon a few months ago was about an unlikely Japanese Arcade game, Flip the Dinner Table. If there's any one trick for getting me hooked on your blog, take note of this - Japan? Weird video games?! All right, I'm there! Been following TLJ ever since.
Although new posts are not always frequent, articles are well thought out and written, and combine interesting tidbits and analyses with a good sense of humor.
Here are a few sample posts:
So once again, I recommend checking out This Japanese Life. Happy Friendship Friday!
