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 about Jesus and Japan! I have studied abroad at Sophia University in Tokyo for the 2012-2013 school year, and taught through the JET Program for 2 years from 2015 to 2017. On my blogs I like to write about my experiences living in Japan, as well as dialogue about the intersection between Japanese culture and Gospel Truth.

    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.
