Shannen lives in Fukushima, Japan, where she enjoys going to festivals, singing karaoke by herself, and riding the train. Sometimes, actually quite a few times a year, she flies all the way to Boston, Massachusetts. Her dream is to amass enough mileage to sit in the front of the airplane! More humble goals of hers include visiting every prefecture in Japan, watching every Akira Kurosawa movie, and reading Japanese newspapers.
