I’m traveling to Ise!

On Saturday, I’ll board a plane to finally go to Japan again. This time it’s only for a little over three weeks, though. I’ll be participating in a cultural studies program at Kogakkan University in Ise, called “伊勢と日本” (“Ise and Japan”). Aside from teaching participants about culture and history of Japan in general and Ise in particular, the program also has the purpose of making Ise more known internationally, so participants are asked to write about their experiences. That means that starting next Sunday or Monday, you can expect (almost) daily posts from Japan for the following three weeks, and at least some tweets on other days. I feel that I should mention a possible conflict of interests here: Kogakkan University is paying for most expenses.

I’m really exited about the trip already and hope you’ll enjoy reading about it!
