Luca came to Japan for the first time in nine months. Overall, I spent most of the week meeting up with my friends and walking around towns with Luca.
For my research, I completed translating all information sheets this week.
Whenever I met up with my close friends to have a chat, I feel the best part of a friendship. Since I started living overseas, all of my friends have been more special to me than ever before because we know that we do not live in the same country and we can only see each other once a year.
We enjoyed exploring Shinagawa, Shibuya, Harajuku and Nagoya (for a one-day Shinkansen trip) over five days. Luca seemed very satisfied with any kind of sushi and most of the Japanese food that he had.
On Sunday, he flew back to England, and I flew to Kagoshima to start my second fieldwork for the next five days.
