After nearly two years, my time in Japan came to an end in April 2010. But I came away without some treasured memories, and, more importantly, a wonderful wife.
After spending the 2009/2010 new year holiday in Melbourne, in January 2010 I went back to Tokyo and it initially felt like back to Tokyo and back to normal. Then I realised that my time left was running low, and my activity level increased. So much, that I haven’t updated this blog since February 2010. Then it was resettling back to Australia, back to work, getting married – a whole lot of reasons for no updates. So the story of my last few months in Japan is in the photos on this page.
I arrived back in Australia on 13 April 2010, and quickly moved into my old house. Of course, it wasn’t the end of me and Japan – I’ve been back four times since. And since I now have a Japanese wife, Japan and I have become inextricably intertwined into the future. Thinking of which, this website is about to undergo a transformation.
