Story behind Yamanashi-Sasuke
How I started blogging
I am not an accomplished nor a good writer, that is why it took a massive leap of faith to go online and publish stuff that used to be sitting in my drawer. I love writing, but I am afraid that nobody would like it anyway. So, I just keep it to myself until, one day, some of my friends back home emailed me asking for help to plan their trip to Jacksonville. They want to know what are my thoughts about Jacksonville, and my recommended tourists spots. That made me think, wait, I already have an answer to this question, I only need to convert them into a Microsoft Word format.
That doesn’t end there, every year I got different sorts of request about Jacksonville, which is I am happy to answer anyway, but since it keeps coming, I decided that maybe it is the right time to set up my blog so that their questions will be answered even before they ask them, and most importantly, I want more Japanese to know more about the beautiful city of Jacksonville, Florida
Another fun fact, do you know that Mount Fuji is not located in Tokyo? A lot of people is mistaken about this. Though Mount Fuji is viewable in Tokyo, it actually lies between Shizuoka, and Yamanashi Prefecture. Yamanashi, that’s where I came from!
How about Sasuke? When I came here, I am overwhelmed by how big Jacksonville is. I don’t know a lot of people, so after school, I don’t have a lot of things to do. I consumed most of my time reading and watching my favorite Japanese Manga series – Naruto. Naruto is the name of the series so is the main character, but I like the second lead best – Sasuke Uchiha.
Yamanashi and Sasuke are very close to my heart, that is why I decided to name my blog Yamanashi-Sasuke.
