Off to Japan, soon. 日本に行く、すぐ

Hi all.  I'm moving to Japan! So I thought I would start a blog and document my experience. This is my first time blogging, so I'll be figuring things out as I get used to it.

I'm still in the U.S., but I'll be moving to Japan in about two weeks. I don't know what it means to be an American singer-songwriter in Japan, but I'm excited to figure it out. That's what I'll be exploring in this blog, as well as whatever experiences come my way. 

I'll try to post things in English and Japanese, but as my Japanese is developing, my Japanese entries will be simpler and probably have incorrect grammar, but I'll do by best.  My Japanese has improved, though, to the point where I wrote a song in Japanese. Here it is, sung with my friend Naoko Oie (@pomegranate__ on Instagram).

Please comment with questions or feedback!


こんにちは、みなさん。日本に引っ越すので、ブログを始めることにします。日本でシンガーソングライターになるアメリカ人が将来的にどうなるのか僕には分かりません。このブログで、そのことを尋ねてみたい。僕の日本語は下手だから、英語の書き込みより、日本語の書き込みは間違えてて短いでしょう。でも、頑張ります! とりあえず、私の最初の日本語の歌を見せます。
