In 1976 I flew halfway across the world to Kyoto. It was a life-changing trip and I had to have more. So, I returned to Kyoto in the summer of 1978. Later I moved to Tokyo. I paid my last visit in 2016 wondering to myself what changes I'd find and would anything be the same? You'll have to keep reading to find out.
I'm also going to teach you some Japanese by using words in context in my writing. Maybe that will work for you. And you'll find a glossary to help you as well.
