All About Cassandra Lord
I’m a current eikaiwa (English conversation) teacher who loves to travel. When I get some of that coveted time off, I like to explore as much of Japan as possible! In my free time I take photos, do digital art, and practice my kanji through the art of Japanese calligraphy.
What I like about Japan
Tokyo in particular is special to me because it’s where I first lived abroad, as I spent my third year of university here. I love Tokyo because of its mixture of old and new—I can visit an ancient temple one day and a robot restaurant the next! Japan as a whole has such an interesting culture and so many places to explore, what isn’t there to like?
