I did an interview with my good friend Gareth Jones a little while back to get someone another take on what life in Japan is like. Because he’s been in Japan for nearly the exact same amount of time as I have, and because I worked with him for nearly three years, I figured Gareth would be a perfect person to share his thoughts and ideas with you.
As much as I love writing and posting everyday, it’s good to hear another side from time to time. I hope to do more of these interviews to make the Japan Guy even more useful for more people. Having a guest here on my blog, might even spark some questions you didn’t know you had. I may have said this before somewhere in my blog, but no two people are going to experience Japan in the same way. Gareth’s interview was both fun and informative. I hope you enjoy it.
If you have questions for Gareth, by all means, post them. He’s a nice guy and I’m sure he’d be happy to answer them:
In the interview, Gareth mentions his former band. Check out the Great Defenders: Re Record on Youtube.
See you tomorrow,
One of my duties as a new ALT in a Shougakko ( or Japanese elementary school) is to have lunch...
