My name is Catrina and I’m your Southwestern Rep for this year. I was a JET ALT in Higashikawa for 5 year, an ALT in Sendai for 2 years and am now the International Relations Advisor for Imakane. My hobbies include traveling, tea ceremony, reading, cycling, and mountain climbing. I also like yosakoi and taiko. My love of traveling has led me to complete the Hokkaido Michi no eki stamp rally twice, the Hokkaido 13 temple and 88 temple pilgrimages and to visit every Japanese prefecture. I love talking about travel, teaching and food. If you know a local gem I probably haven’t been to let me know! Hope to talk to you soon in person or online.
