Welcome to Rice and Miso Everyday – you might be wondering why I came up with that name? Well, after some travel around Asia I decided to move to Japan to teach English and to indulge in rice and miso – everyday ha ha.
Originally from Australia, my name is Gemma and I’m in my mid twenties.
I recently graduated and had no idea what I wanted to do – so I decided to travel. Teaching in Japan was the obvious choice for me because I have always been fascinated by Japanese culture and the food is great. Also, after being a student for so long I really needed to finally earn some cash. Midway through last year I took up a job offer here and haven’t looked back since. There’s so much to see and do in Japan that I hope I can help you if you are planning to teach English here, planning a holiday or just curious about what I’m up to.
I think I’ll extend my time in Japan by another year to save up more money, then I’ll be planning a round-the-world trip. I really can’t wait.
Thanks so much for dropping by my little corner of the online world – I hope you have a great stay and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
