New blog on the block

Hey! This is my first official post on my blog. Gaijin’s Dream. My name is Stephen Falke, and I’m a college student from George Mason University, preparing to study abroad in Tokyo, Japan, for a whole year. I’ve been passionately interested in Japan for a long time, and this will be my second time visiting, but my first time staying and living in Japan. I’ve been studying Japanese for about 4-5 years and been wanting to go to Japan for that long, so I’m really excited. “Gaijin” is Japanese for foreigner, which my blonde hair indicates, like it or not. :p Thus, because of all of the above, I feel like Gaijin’s Dream is a fitting name. I am a gaijin, and this is my dream. With introductions through, there’s a new blog on the block.


About Stephen

My name is Stephen Gabriel Falke, and I am passionate for all things Japanese. I have been accepted to teach for the JET Program starting 2015. In the past, during my time in college, I also had the chance to participate in a study abroad at Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan, for Japan's 2012 school year. On my blog I write about my love for Japan, my journey to get there and stay there, and my adventures studying and teaching there.

    Welcome to the blogosphere Stephen. I’ve been a gavacho, a gweilo, a weiguorren, a farang, and a tay, but never a gaijin. Lemme know what I missed. 🙂

    Thank you for creating this blog; it’s perfect! I’m going to be a GMU student & wanting to study abroad in Japan, so I’ve been constantly on the search for people who’ve displayed their international experiences. I’m very grateful. ^^ Have a wonderful week~

      Thank you so much for stopping by to read and comment! My apologies in taking so long to get back to you. Let me know if you have any other questions about studying abroad in Japan through GMU, as I’d love to help and have contacts who have studied at GMU’s other partner universities besides Sophia.
