The placements are in, and I'm going to be spending the next year teaching English in Gunma Prefecture! This is a really great location! I'll be right in the middle of Japan's main island of Honshuu, and I'm only one prefecture away from Tokyo! I was really concerned about what would happen to this blog, since it's called Twisted in Tokyo. I mean, what would I do about the name if I wound up somewhere really strange? But it looks like I'll have plenty of access to Tokyo after all!
No news yet on if I'm in a city in Gunma, or a town, or what, but I certainly can't complain about being placed in the Kantou Region. Soon, this blog will be back in full force! I'll be sure to update as soon as I know more!
