On this page, you’ll find all the articles, which I’ll write during my stay in Japan as an exchange student in the years 2011 and 2012. I’m studying as a special auditing student at the university of Hiroshima on the main island Honshu and hope to get deeper insights into the japanese language and culture, as well as having a good time in a different but interesting country. All the articles are sorted into five categories, which you’ll find below and are arranged in the order of their time of writing within the categories themselves. I hope this makes it easier to judge the content of an article and also helps finding them, if you search for something specific.
Consider this category as my not daily updated diary, where you’ll find articles about my everyday live while living in Hiroshima. These are the most basic articles, but should also about how it is to live in Japan, if you’d like to know more about that.

While I’m not in Hiroshima, all the interesting stuff I encounter will be put into this category. Be it famous shrines or interesting people on the way or amazing skylines in Osaka. I hope this will create a diverse image of Japan, which goes beyond the usual stereotypes (although I just listed some in the examples ^^).

First of all – what is sugoi? It’s a japanese word, which can be used in a similar way as awesome or great but to me also carries a connotation of the modern fancy japanese things, that seem overdone or weird to the western eye. But not as bad as kawai-ness. Making it Super-Sugoi is expressing that even more and the term was invented from a friend in the Netherlands – you know who you are 😉 So you’re going to find colourful and funky stuff in here – shield your eyes from blindness!

Food… what can I say? I like food and I also like to write about it (you might search for my chocolate reviews on this site), so it seemed obvious to do it when I’m in Japan, where there is a hell lot of foods, that are different from what we know in Europe. Check it out, if you’re a food-maniac as I am 😀
