Greeting from Japan

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone.

I'm a 46 year old Canadian living and working in Japan for the past 15 years.

I own and operate an English Conversation School in Kobe with my wife who is Japanese.

I have an MA in Linguistics.

I have been playing golf since I was 15 or so and am crazy about the game.

I had my handicap down to 4.5 several years ago, but was sidelined with an injury for close to a year and am just now getting it back to respectability.  I wish I had more time to dedicate to my game.

The Sand Trap looks like a good collection of knowledgeable people, so I look forward to some good exchanges and hopefully picking up some ideas that will help me get my game back on track.

 

Keep it on the Short Grass.

Good to have another lefty. :) You wrong-siders tend to be under-represented in golf! :)

Thanks iacas.  Yeah, but there are even fewer of them here in Japan, so finding good deals on equipment is tough sometimes.  I usually wait until I head to the states to do my shopping.

Konnichiwa!  How do you like living in Japan?  I lived in Nagoya for a few years when I worked there as an English teach and really liked it.  I often think about moving back, actually.

It's been a great 15 years, but I'm actually thinking about moving back home in the not too distant future.

I can respect that.  I ended up moving back for family reasons myself.  I still go back at least every 3 years but its definetly not the same as living there full-time.

Yeah, my folks aren't getting any younger and my nieces are growing up so fast that I worry I won't be the uncle I should be in their mind.

Japan is a great place to live, but 15 years is a llllllloooooooonnnnnnnggggggg time.
