Hello, and welcome! My name is Catie. I’m currently living in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. I work as a high school assistant language teacher (ALT), and am currently in my third year on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program. I love living in Japan, and plan to stay at the for another year or two at least. This blog will mostly talk about my misadventures and daily life, as well as my interest in Japanese pop culture.  

I have too many hobbies and interests, and I always seem to be picking up new ones. I love fashion, both wearing and buying it, as well as fashion theory and study. I’m especially interested in Japanese alternative fashion. I like anime and manga, and my specific tastes within the medium are constantly shifting and changing. I like to travel when I can, explore my own city, and go to cute cafés and interesting events

Thank you for checking out my blog!
