Tohoku Volunteering + Preview of future posts

I am very sorry for not making any posts lately.  The past few weeks have been filled with many events.  Here is what I have been up to this past month.

1: Volunteering in Tohoku

One of my main goals for my year abroad in Japan was to volunteer in Tohoku.  As it has turned out, I have become actively involved with Tohoku relief groups Youth for 3.11 and Team Asunaro and have been regularly traveling up to Tohoku for various volunteer programs.  On a recent trip I started gathering video footage of our volunteer efforts and have made an informal video introduction to the Youth for 3.11 X Team Asunaro program to Ishinomaki. 

(Keep in mind this is an informal video, I am working on creating a formal video in the near future.)

                                     2: A Trip to Izu
Coming soon, a post about a wonderful trip to Izu with my roommates.  Tetsuo (sitting in the middle) will be moving to Yokohama to begin his job at an international shipping company in April, this was a farewell trip to see him off.

The sakura (cherry blossoms) were also in bloom during this trip, look forward to the pictures! 

                        3: A Week-Long Trip to Okinawa 
I just got back from a week long trip to Okinawa with the ICU Cycling Club.  I will be creating a video for this trip soon! 

During this trip I was able to live out a lifelong dream of mine where I was able to visit the Churaumi Aquarium and see the Kuroshio Sea Exhibit.  Here is a video that I shot to help me remember the occasion.
