A Japan Guy Interview:
“Developing Your Talents While Living Abroad”-featuring Robb Johnston

By Donnie | Articles

Today’s interview is one that I recorded a while back, but really struggled to get the sound right. So I apologize in advance for any sound issues.

Robby, Staff, and Me back in our Eikaiwa days in Tsukuba, Japan

I interviewed Robb Johnston of Rockford, Michigan. Robby was a former AEON teacher and co-worker and literally one of the first friends I made when coming to Japan. During my early times in Japan, Robb showed me the ropes: from learning to use my Japanese Rice cooker to drilling me on hiragana and katakana, to being a big part of my support system here in Japan. I won’t go into all of the details about what Robby is up to these days (otherwise there will be no need to watch the interview). He’s now back in Michigan, but but was nice enough to do an interview with me. Here it is:

There He is! The Woodcutter Himself!

Oh, I almost forgot, Here are some of the pictures I was talking about in the interview:

I don't remember the joke Robby said, but this was the end result 🙂

If you have any questions for Robby, please leave them in the comments section below, he’d love to hear from you.

As always, thanks for watching/reading everybody.

See you tomorrow!
