My old Noheji home

Avoidinglife.com was created in 2003 to chronicle my time teaching English in northern Japan.  I spent three years living in Noheji, Aomori on the northern coast of Tohoku, with most weekends spent in Hirosaki city or travelling all over the place.

This website has mostly remained dormant since then, but I thought it was time for an update.  It’s not about life in Japan anymore as I’ve long since moved back to Canada, but I’ve preserved my old blog for future generations to enjoy here: avoidinglife.com/japanblog
