Kelia Murata

Greets my fallow Hokkaidans! Believe it or not, I am still your purveyor of all things book. In case you don’t know, my name is Kelia and I am located in the lovely southwestern town of Yakumo. We are known for touching both the Sea of Japan and the Pacific Ocean, carved wooden bears, and, of course, being cloudy eight days a week. (Get it? Eight clouds - 八雲? ) Aside from the cloud cover and the ocean views, the beautiful mountainous, snowy nature of Hokkaido really speaks to my Coloradan roots and makes me feel right at home; so if you ever want a hiking buddy, I’m your girl. My other hobbies also include cooking, video games, and reading! (Shocking, I know)

I am currently teaching at twelve schools while still running my extracurricular children’s classes, English clubs, and Eikaiwa so I keep plenty busy. But if you ever want to discuss books, video games, recipes, or how stunning this prefecture still is, I always have time to chat with a friend.
