I do combat sports and power lifting which, fortunately, I don't need to go outside to do during this time of the year Applied for the Kansai region, Tokyo and Okinawa which I would absolutely dig if they gave it to me. I dream of the scorching heat and sandy beaches, but since it's my third choice I don't expect to get it.
Ahaha! I completely agree...I was like "not Hokkaido not Hokkaido" . Although, in Toronto winter has been very kind this year - just not tonight.
Btw congrats to you both! Your English sounds like it would be wonderful! (Anyways, French accents are awesome!) Even without being French-Canadian I'm sure we all worry about them zoning into our speaking and annunciation. I'm an immigrant - and although I spent most of my life in Toronto - people randomly mention I have an accent - which I am unnaware of so let's hope it doesn't poke out during my interview haha.
I chose Kanagawa Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture, and Osaka Prefecture, in that order but I feel equally about all 3 - they are all my first choice.
I always get sad when people do the "not Hokkaido not Hokkaido" especially if they've never been here. Sure there is winter but IT IS AMAZING. It's beautiful, so much to do, the people are kind, and you can visit all the other places but very few think to come up here.
If it's any consolation, my first pick was Hokkaido. I've heard so many wonderful things about it, and am an avid skiier as well!
