See me in the Shinmai - every Saturday

Did anybody notice my debut as a 'writer' for the Shinmai newspaper? No, me neither!

I was asked to contribute no more than 50 words about topics relating to Nagano. The text is aimed at JHS age kids - so it has to be simple but interesting. It has to be accurate, and suitable for teachers to use in class.

I would like to be a bit creative in this adventure, but  there is no wriggle space whatsoever, and there is a lot of to & fro with the editors & translators...and they want to cut it back to 40 words already! Loose the stupid graphics or something instead!
