Anyone, anywhere, who is interested in Japan is welcome to join in.
A monthly mini-challenge (except December) focusing on Japanese literature and culture.
It is hosted here at In Spring it is the Dawn.
A new topic will be posted at the beginning of every month. You have until the end of the month to complete the task for that month, and submit the link to your post to be eligible for that month's prize.
If you don't have a blog but would still like to play along, you can write a comment on the Hello Japan! post for the month telling us what you did to complete the task, or you can email me inspringthedawn at gmail dot com and I'll include it in the wrap up post at the end of the month.
To experience a little taste of Japan no matter where you live, and to learn more about the fascinating country that is Japan.
