About

passersby in the stillnessThe inception of this blog started in 2010 towards the end of my English Education degree. Many things were in flux during my last years at University. I started this blog mainly with no vision to speak of, but it slowly evolved into a springboard of sorts to my journey to Japan. I started writing at night mainly because I was the most creative then. The title was mainly influenced by my writing schedule- A moonflower blooms only at night. I also was working on a project about The Tale of Genji at the time so it is a reference to the work as well. I then combined that with my favorite word in Japanese, semishigure, which is a description of a lot of Japanese crickets making sound during a cool summer day.

This blog has slowly evolved into a focused purpose. While it is still being crafted, currently, I  write about many things that I encounter while I  live in Japan. I came to Japan to gain more understanding in teaching English to non-native speakers as well as for a multitude of personal reasons. I write on a variety of topics for this blog. I have made it easy to navigate to the most popular themes. To understand more fully about why I write about the topics on this blog, here is a little background. Comedy is a purveying theme because Manzai pulled on my heartstrings when I was in college as I studied comic spirit. I post every so often on the subject. I also post my own poetry here. Some of them were written on this blog, labeled as ‘Poetry of the Night’, and some for classes I had taken. I sometimes mention a little information on the poetry’s inceptional reasons. I live in Japan now, and Japan has a lot to offer.
I am here for the ride. I learn more each day, and I invite you to contribute by commenting while I am on this journey.
