This is a photograph I found at my mum's house of myself and my Japanese neighbour, Mizuki.
I remember Mizuki's mum used to make us Nutella sandwiches and cut them into perfect love heart shapes. I think this was probably the beginning of my love affair with Japan.

I kind of feel like over the last few years I've been in a long distance relationship with Japan: visiting when I could, keeping updated online etc. Now, I've decided to really commit to our relationship and I have moved here!
