It’s been 7 months (!) since I returned semi-full time to the classroom. I’ve experienced a whirlwind of emotions in this journey, but life as a kindergarten teacher in Japan is actually enjoyable (for the most part).

I love that there are so many “mommy and baby” events in Tokyo. Unfortunately for me, they’re nearly always on a weekday morning. (It took me forever to find a weekend “mommy and baby” swimming class and even then, it’s 40 minutes away). So, when I had the opportunity to work with Local Bites and participate in one of Tokyo’s toddler-friendly sushi making classes, I jumped at the chance.
Well, the rainy season is underway, but you wouldn’t know that based on the high temperatures spreading across all of Japan.
