I often - very often - reminisce with great affection about my life in Japan. As a foreigner, you are treated with special privileges and respect - especially if you are a teacher. During the first year I lived in eastern Osaka, before moving out "to the country" near a small train station named Amagatsuji a short ride away from the city of Nara (and in Nara Prefecture). It was at Amagatsuji that I felt most "Japanese", and I wanted to share a few pictures from my everyday life out there.

It's certainly a trip down memory lane for me to dig out my old pictures, but I'm also curious if there's anyone out there who knows the area and can tell me if it's changed much over the years. Do let me know in the comments!
