Hi, everyone. Thank you for reading my blog which I have decided to write not everyday but at least once a week or so.
My name is Jack
Firstly I think I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jack. This is not my real name but nickname. My wife nicknamed this
after a little monster which all Japanese know the name called Amanojaku. Amanojaku is the person who is perverse or contrary person.
As I am not an obedient husband, she called me Jack Amano. As you know our name's order is surname first and given name.
When we talk to Westerner, we adjust Western way. AmanoJaku turns to Jack Amano. I am not such a perverse person. Don't be
afraid of appoing me as a guide. I hope you will understand me through this blog.
I was born in Fukuoka prefecture which is located in Kyushu Island.
When I was two years old, my father joined Naval Deffence Forces
as a pilot and our family moved to Tateyama, Chiba prefecture.
Then we moved to Yokosuka, Yokohama in Kanagawa prefecture
due to my father's relocation order. Then he resigned the Forces and our family moved to Nishinomiya which is located between
Osaka and Kobe.
Three years later we moved to Kamakura, Kanagawa prefecture since then Kanagawa prefecture has been
my hometown until my departure to New Zealand. I have lived in New Zealand for 22 years.
