Stephen Howes

Stephen is an Australian teacher living in Gunma prefecture with his family of five.  He spent almost eight years on his first adventure to Japan, from 2001-2008, before returning to Brisbane to pursue a position as a Science and Japanese teacher at a well-respected school.  This experience enriched his interest and curiosity in the history and language of Japan, which he will endeavour to share with readers.  His experiences, the second time around, can also be followed on on YouTube, or on Twitter.
