こんにちは！My name is Ellen and I’m from Surrey, UK. I’m in my second and final year of the JET Programme, living in a small fishing town called Fukaura in Aomori prefecture, Japan. Its population of 9,000 is spread all the way down a single highway, where on one side there are mountains and forests, and on the other is the Sea of Japan. So far the inaka life is pretty good. I hope you enjoy reading about it!
