About this blogこんにちは！Welcome to my blog. This blog is about my exchange experience in Japan. I'll be studying one semester (January-May, 2012) at Seinan Gakuin University in Fukuoka city located in the beautiful island of Kyūshū.

The title of this blog refers to a Japanese saying "Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!" (鬼は外! 福は内!) which translates to as "Demons out! Luck in!". The name of Fukuoka is written as 福岡 in Japanese. So, "fuku" stands for "luck". I feel lucky to be able to do my exchange in this city of "lucky hill" also known as Fukuoka!
