Apparently this blog’s title came about in the aftermath of a failed college romance. These days, though, the author (calling himself Claytonian) seems to have put those worries behind him and is keeping a very engaging personal blog of his time in Japan. He’s recently finished the first chapter of his life here, in Kyushu, and has moved to Saitama. In his writing, he comes through as a personable, intelligent, funny guy with something of substance to say about his daily life here. That alone would be enough for many readers, but he’s also a dedicated student of Japanese, and fairly frequently offers posts that will be of interest to others studying the language.
Another welcome addition here is an ample Youtube presence, still surprisingly rare on Japan blogs, that gives you another point of access into Claytonian’s experiences. An all around winner of a blog, and you’ll find it here or from the sidebar.
