Across the Pacific

“And clouds that look like mountains in the sky are next to mountains anyway…”

So, I’ve officially moved to Japan. After so much planning and prep work, I’m finally here and it’s almost unbelievable. I think that one of my favorite parts of my trip over was when the plane was first over Japan. I looked out the window and saw all of these beautiful cumulus clouds. But when I looked in the distance, I saw that the clouds formed a halo around the snow-capped mountains. I don’t know why, but it was so rejuvenating for me after being in the air for 10 hours. God knew exactly what I needed at that point, and by that one simple thing, He made Japan start to feel like home.

Some of the important things that I’ve learned in less than 12 hours in Japan:

~Hold onto your train ticket because you need it to get out of the station.

~Oishi means that something tastes good, and you say it a lot over here.

~Riding in a car on the left-hand side of the road is completely weird.

Well, it’s 8PM here, and the jet lag is really starting to kick in. I’m off to make my bed (on the floor) and crash. Maybe tomorrow I’ll post some pictures of the apartment.
