So what's this Japan thing all about? Well, the aforementioned country was blessed (or cursed, however you may see it) with my presence for about six months, from October '96 to March '97. This page is dedicated to the interesting stories, information, and pictures of my trip.


Everything was great! I had a great time in Japan. I went to school for three weeks at the Kyoto International Center for some extra language training, and then I started work. I worked for a company called Multimedia Research Center. I made background music for them to use in their multimedia products. The guys who came over with me (Will Bearyman, Randy Balisalisa, and John Murray) are really great. Will and I lived together in our homestay, where we stayed while we were attending school at KIC. . Our host mother, Kidani-san, was the best. She always made us food we liked and bought us ice cream and chocolate and stuff like that.
