To all the readers of TanoshiMail, hello!
My name is Rika Miyaji, the coordinator of Japanese language programs.
I’ve been working at KIA since April.
June has started, huh?
The common image of June in Japan is the rainy season, and the one month of the year that has no holidays.
I think that there are probably some people out there who start to feel a bit depressed thanks in part to that rain that keeps falling.
(I’m one of them…)
But, when it comes to June abroad, it’s a cheerful and invigorating season, with summer vacation and graduation.
The hearts of many people beat faster as they begin preparations for vacations and a new lifestyle.
Try refreshing your life on the back of your thoughts, flying away to a new world yet unseen!
Have a nice month, everyone!
Japanese Language Programs Coordinator - Rika Miyaji
