Due to the current State of Emergency through out major parts of Japan, a lot of public seating has been closed to keep people from gathering. This picture is from a recent trip to Nagoya, on the day I recieved my second Covid vaccine.
We’ve been getting a ton of rain this month. There’s been at least one actual typhoon to hit Nagoya, but we’ve also been experiencing sudden, heavy showers almost daily. This was during one such shower, on my way to work.
Practically no one was out and about when I was getting lunch this afternoon.
So, it’s been a very long time since the last update. In that time a lot has happened here in Japan, some of which I am sure you have heard about or seen on the news. Nagoya is bracing in the midst of the Coronavirus and many stores have run out of things like masks, hand sanitizer, and various paper products. The government, as well as many businesses and groups, have put strong measures into effect to try to limit people’s exposure to the virus.
So far, me and mine have been fortunate to have remained healthy. However due to some of the measures in place, such as a ban on travel and congregating in large groups, there may be a lack of posts in the near future. I will try to keep you all updated.
I hope you all stay well.
I had an assignment in Gifu last week. The school is on the 8th floor and has a lot of windows. During my break, I was able to get a picture of the sunset.
Recently, the sunset has been getting earlier. Since moving here, I’ve been struggling to get used to early mornings and evenings. It’s been 3.5 years but I still am surprised.
Started working at a new school at the start of August. The interesting point of this particular location is the view.
My favourite is the restaurant around the corner. It serves the best grilled mackerel.
Oh, and the overhead higway bridge that shakes the school from time to time.
Last weekend was a rainy one. I stayed mostly at home, cleaning and preparing for friends to come over next Sunday. I did venture out to hit up the local Nitori for seat cushions though. It was an interesting experience.
Saturday will be last day working in Gifu. While I’ve no longer been working there five days a week, I was still doing Saturdays there. From July, I’ll be working a bit closer to home.
High above Nagoya Meieki, we look down and dream of warmer days. Winter is half over, but spring can’t come fast enough.
