While working in Japan, I wrote a series of articles for the monthly e-zine, the Polestar, published by the Hokkaido Association for Japanese Exchange Teachers (HAJET). Each month saw many articles and photographs contributed by teachers throughout Hokkaido detailing how they were getting on in Japanese society. For my own submissions, I wanted to contribute articles that were culturally relevant while still having a creative flair to them.
The following are articles from my Modern Myths series that were published in the Polestar.
A full collection of all the Modern Myth articles I wrote can be found on Gaijin Desu Ne, my Japanese travelog.
