About Us

Teddy and I are a married American couple from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Teddy has spent the last few years as a computer programmer, while I have spent them as a Japanese teacher across grades 3-12.  Beginning in February 2013, we will move halfway across the world to Nagoya, Japan to begin our lives as international school teachers.  This blog will chronicle our day-to-day lives and adventures in Japan.

    Dear Jen and Teddy!
    Congratulations for your interesting website. Recently i am a bit interested in all things japanese, to me Japan is really magic. Maybe next year i will be visiting Kyoto.
    But why I write: Your blog entries give me the impression, that you must be extremely happy and also very kind people. This is a wonderful thing to see!
    I wish you all the best for your future, in Japan or elsewhere. If you ever come to Switzerland and are on search for acommodation or are in any other need (where I could be helpful) don’t hesitate to contact me.
    best wishes,
