Our kids have quite a unique life — they are American/Brazilian and yet go to Japanese school where they interact and learn in Japanese! To make things even more diverse, there are no schools in the world like Japanese schools — why, even the children are trained to do all the cleaning from a young age! And there’s nothing quite like a Japanese Undoukai, or Sports Day. Come enter into a bit of our Japanese/American/Brazilian world as our newest video focuses on Becca & Anna and their school.
In one week we transform our brand new location in the Tokyo area into a space that will work to host our church meeting while preparing it to be a cafe! It’s Fixer Upper Tokyo style, as we get to work in this episode of Life in Japan.
What do roses, our blonde American kids and cafes have in common? See if you can figure it out in episode 5 of Life in Japan, as we secure our new cafe/church location. To celebrate, we visit the famous Rose Garden in Ikuta with our family. That’s right, all these things are related, and they’re all right here in Noborito. Hope I didn’t give anything away now…
We speak English at home, but outside the house everything is Japanese. See what life is like for our kids as we balance Japanese school, private English and music lessons and life and try to make it fun all at the same time. One thing for sure — our daily routine helps us make it work! It’s time for Life in Japan — Kids’ style! Check out the next video in our Life In Japan series.
Since arriving in Japan 4 years ago, we dreamed about recording a live album here in Tokyo in Japanese and English. The right moment came just last summer, and in a very short amount of time we decided to pull the trigger and record the album. This is a behind the scenes look at that recording.
