My favourite quote is from the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He said “knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do”. I believe we must apply our knowledge to the world, and put into action the things we planned.


On my day off I like to get out of town on my bicycle. Sometimes I cycle for about 40km or further. When I am at home, I enjoy listening to my record collection. I believe music is good for the soul!


I would pay for my friends and family to come from all the places in the world they live. Then we would have a big week long party together right here in Japan.


No I wouldn’t change my past. My past brought me to where I am today. Sometimes we make mistakes and we have regrets, but we overcome them and we become stronger. It is important to learn from our mistakes.


I would recommend seeing Japan before seeing the world. Japan has many wonderful places. I really enjoyed living in Aomori, and I think Kanagawa is a beautiful prefecture. My dream is to one day visit Okinawa.

I didn’t visit my home country as much as I would have liked. Now I am in Japan, I regret not visiting more of England.


Everyone has their own taste and finding a good book is a personal quest. I recommend students try a few classics to begin with. Fairy tales can be a good place to start. Perhaps students know the Disney adaptations of fairy tales like Snow White, Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland, but the original stories can be surprisingly different.
