Let me introduce myself. My name is Colleen and I’m from Detroit, Michigan in the US. You might know Detroit as the hometown of Motown music, Detroit Techno and of course, the automobile industry. And you might know me, if you tune in on Saturday mornings, as the DJ for Earth Feeling, every Saturday morning from 8am to 10am. As I mentioned before, I’ve lived in Fukuoka for over 15 years, I came once as an exchange student for a program at Kyushu University and then came back only planning to stay for one more year! I suppose it couldn’t be helped, Fukuoka is a great place. I love the food here, goma saba is one of my favorite winter treats. When I have time, I also like hiking the nearby mountains, Sawara-ku and Itoshima are some places I’ve often been. In the summer, I like visiting the beaches at Mitoma and Shingu. I’m actually surprised they don’t get busier, in Michigan, even though the summers are a bit cooler and the water much colder, beaches get so busy with families and friends out enjoying the sun. There’s a lot more I love doing in Fukuoka, I try to find different events around the city and prefecture and I’ll be sure to pass that information on to you here on this program! So where ever you are from, whether it be the US or another country, if you’re a newcomer well, welcome to Fukuoka, it’s a great place to live.
