Ok, it is 5:55 pm in Kyowa (a part of Obu) and I have found an internet cafe 3 minutes from the house so YATA! Ok, so lets see, how awesome is Japan so far... hm... OK, lets start! 1: Taking the train to school; Its so cool to walk down to a train station and take a train to Nagoya and get off at that station and walk to the school! 2. I.C. Nagoya; The school is a part of a building but its pretty neat inside. We took a placement test and I am in Class A, the beginning class, but im ok with that because even though i did the online test, I really didnt learn that much... except to identify the Hiragana characters. It was more of i needed the teacher and classroom environment to learn Japanese, so its all good. 3. Being on my own!; I like being on my own! Its like this, after school, I can buy a ticket to the subway and go where ever i want in Nagoya then when I`m done, I find my way back to Nagoya center and go to the train station and ride the train to Kyoowa then walk home through the town. Its just awesome! Ok, Ill come back to this cafe tomorrow and next time have some pictures to share! This is Chase Tyree, signing off!

Hey everyone! This is the CTJ (Chase to Japan) update! with your Host, Chase Tyree! Everything is going great so far! Yesterday I met my host family, the Kawahara`s and they are an awesome family! We had lunch at a sushi resturant where it all is on a conveyor belt (fricken awesome!) and we had luch at a western style steak house to celebrate Otousan`s (Fathers) birthday! Today, Otousan, Taiki, and I walked to the train station and took the train to Nagoya to show me where the school is and to have lunch. We also, and this is the best part, we went to the... POKEMON CENTER NAGOYA!!!! Lol, a pokefans dream! It was full of awesome pokemon stuff and was just awesome.
