Last weekend I went to a ninjutsu class with my friends. Class was at 9am in Nagano city, about 1.5 hours away from my village, so to avoid waking up ridiculously early we all slept over at Andrew’s place.
Whenever I was was waiting in the marshaling area before a fight, nerves would make my heart beat fast and my legs jump up and down in the seat. My coach beside me would ask, “How do you feel?” And I would usually reply, “Nervous.”
I’ve had 3 weeks to settle into my new home Nozawa Onsen and there have been a lot of beautiful moments that stopped me in my tracks. I thought I’d lay them out now before I start getting used to them!
