As an introduction to this blog, it seemed appropriate to use one of my first experiences on the job here–my first job in Japan. My Japanese is generally functional, but not above these kinds of slip-ups. This is only the first of many!

It is worth noting, however, that I do love bushi–perhaps more recognizably known to English-speakers as samurai. As luck would have it, there is a history of them here, and therefore plenty of material to work with for this blog!
