Although this is only a snippet of some of the communities and different people I had the pleasure of developing relationships along the way, I am very grateful for how they were able to shape my experience in Japan. A city or town’s identity is defined by the people and communities that make up it. Throughout my time, I have been so fortunate to meet so many wonderful people, and been taken into their communities, and become a better, stronger person. This is a love letter to those people, and the communities of Kochi.
