35 years!

Posted by Dave Bull on July 1, 2021 [Permalink]

Today marks the 35th anniversary of my entry to Japan ... Thirty. Five. Years.


I had previously been refused both Cultural, and Student visas on application back in Vancouver. We came anyway, and - as expected - I got a three month tourist visa at the airport.

More about the episode in an old old issue of my Hyaku-nin Issho newsletter.

Congratulations on 35 years in Japan!

I moved to Japan in the early '90s but moved back to the US in 2007. Each year I visit Japan in the summer (I have kids and this is their summer vacation) except for 2020 and 2021. I cannot wait to return in 2022.

Please keep doing what you are doing to keep the traditional arts alive in Japan!
