Hello Japan!

Hello Japan!
a mini-challenge about Japan
hosted by In Spring It Is The Dawn

This is my acceptance post which will also house links to challenge posts.

Each month there will be a topic and/or activity relating to some aspect of Japanese literature or culture. Each task shouldn't take more than a couple of hours, unless you opt to do more, and is meant to be a fun way to let you experience a little taste of Japan no matter where you live. A new topic will be posted at the beginning of each month and you'll have the full month to complete it and post about it on your blog. more details here
