In Japan, there are something like four national holidays stretching from the last week of April to the first week of May. Many employers will give their employees the entire week off. Happily, my school is one of those generous-hearted entities. I have been teaching for nearly three months now and readily welcome a break. To celebrate, we shall go to the beach in Shirahama for a couple of days to watch the sunsets and loll about with strangers at the hot springs.
I have never been so excited to be with naked Japanese people in my life.
