Public Nudity

I, like most American women (I think), am not exactly fond of getting buck naked in a changing room with other women and then proceeding to bathe with those same women in a shared bath. I’m not sure if growing up in the states is to blame for this, but I have a feeling if […]

Skiing in Hokkaido

Powder, crabs, ramen and beer. What do these things have in common? These are probably some of the best things about Hokkaido! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the geography on this side of the world (I was until I arrived here), Hokkaido is a pretty large island off of the northern coast […]
