About Me

My name is Oyomi.

Of course this is not my real name, but it is my Japanese nickname. My real name is very popular for Americans, so I have many friends who just call me by me Japanese name.

I am a punk rock anime lover. I love to wear punk, scene, emo, rock, and gothic style clothing. In high school, I was very much like an otaku, but more in the American sense of the word, not the Japanese definition. Now I am less into anime, but I still read manga often.

I was born on October 4th.

I have two dogs. They are both small dogs named Max and Captain.

Hobby:  Reading manga, watching anime, listening to music, playing badminton, drawing (and using screen-tones), playing computer games, doing various things on the computer, and going to different places in Japan.

I listen to pretty much all types of music. The only type I don’t really like is reggae.

I just finished studying as an exchange student in Japan. I was living in Japan for one year (August 2016 – August 2017)

I was interning with the Department of Contemporary English (DCE) at Ibaraki Christian University along with 5 other interns during the summer of 2015. It was a three month program.

Most of my posts will be from these two times, but I have been to Japan two times prior.

The first time was in the summer of 2012. I was in Japan for one month learning how to make manga and anime, and a little bit of language classes. For each thing I was learning, the program had us go to different cities. I wish I too more notes so I could write about it, but that is not the case. I didn’t even take many photos because I don’t really like feeling like a tourist, but now that I have been in Japan for so long, I just want to explore.

The second time was in April of 2013. It was a 10 day exchange trip with my school. It was a super fast trip and was not very enjoyable, but I wanted to go because Japan is my favorite place. I performed at a school while I was there, but other than that, nothing eventful happened.

Although the posts may not be posted in order, nor will they be posted the day after I went to these places, they will all be my opinions about the things I have seen and done while living in Japan.
