Kelia Murata

Hiya! It’s me, Kelia, the new purveyor of all things book. I live in the southwestern town of Yakumo, known for being the only municipality to touch both the Sea of Japan and the Pacific Ocean, carved wooden bears, and being cloudy all the time (8 clouds baby!). Before starting my newest adventure in Japan, I hailed from beautiful Colorado where my love affair with snow and nature began.

I am currently teaching at seven schools and alongside my extracurricular children’s classes and Eikaiwa, I keep myself busy with running, cooking, reading (of course), and playing video games. If you ever want to geek out about books, games, or how freaking beautiful this prefecture is, I’m your girl. So come buy some books and let’s chat!
