After over six years here, I have decided to leave and as my time in England is coming to an end very soon, I thought I should share some of my future plans here. I’m going home for christmas to spend a couple of weeks with my family and my new nephew who should see the light of day anytime now, but in the 1st week of January I will be packing my bags and relocating to Japan for almost three months. From January to February I’ll do an artist residency at 3331 Art’s Chiyoda in Tokyo and the rest of the time I will travel around the country and spend time with my partner. I’m getting really excited about this and have even started to take Japanese classes so that I can get along on my own when I’m there, though at the moment all I can say is wakarimasen – word I’m sure I’ll be needing a lot.
Here’s some images from my last trip to Japan – my friend asked me to take part in the B&W challenge on Facebook a while ago, but unsurprisingly I forgot, so am trying to compensate here. These are for you Aura!
And last but not least, I’ve sold my soul and joined Twitter. You can now follow me @IdaTaavitsainen
