Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

I'm Lian, an Irish mum living near the gorgeous Mt. Fuji in Shizuoka, Japan with my husband and little boy, Seán.
I've always wanted to start a blog about my life in Japan, and what better time than the busiest and most challenging of my life. In the past year I have become a wife, a mum and settled down on the other side of the world.
I want to share the things I love (and hate a little, maybe) about Japan, and what it's like to be an Irish first-time mum in this unique country.
I'm writing this mainly for myself and my family, but it anyone with an interest in Japan has a look for a few minutes of their day and thinks "hmm, interesting" I will be really pleased. I will be over the moon if my mum (an avid reader like myself) reads it! (Hi mum!)
I don't reckon the Internet will ever disappear, so this blog is something I can read in the future and look back nostalgically as I read my Dickens by a warm fire (or under a kotatsu) with my husband in our old age.
Thanks for reading.
