The Beginning of Gaijin Explorer!

Well, here we go...the first blog entry for Gaijin Explorer. After a long painful wait to get internet set up at my apartment, I can now access the internet in a place other than my school where my teachers are looking over my shoulder wondering why I am not grading papers, designing life changing lesson plans, or at least looking like I am working. In this blog I hope to share my experience here in Kurobe, Toyama-ken, Japan as an assistant language teacher. With new adventures and realizations, blogs will be posted to be enjoyed and critique. I have been here for six weeks tomorrow, and may be posting experiences from that timespan, so forgive the chronological incongruity. OK, that's it for the introduction. Stay tuned!


  1. Hey!
    I'm the first comment! For some reason I can't read all these squiggly lines. I hope I hit the right buttons.
    You'd better get some stuff on here cause I'm adding you to the blogroll on Dojo Rat!

  2. Hey Zac, looks like you are off to a great start with the blog. Glad I found you, BP (

  3. Hey Zac,

    I've tried to reach you by email a few times, but have had no luck apparently. Please mail me at tedtaylor(at)
