SCHIZO-ALIAS

Musings about Japan and life as a human, a cosplayer, a minority, a music lover, an English teacher.

Going to Korea

I didn’t get to talk about this as much as I wanted to, because I’ve been constantly moving.

After 23 years, I will finally visit the country that holds the other half of my background.

Up until recently, I never had a strong desire to go to Korea–definitely not as much as I had wanted to come to Japan. After I moved here in 2010, my mom suggested that I visit Korea, and I said that I wanted to go with her. In fact, I ONLY really wanted to go if it was with her.

I didn’t expect that time to come so soon. As soon as I told my parents that I was considering visiting the US during Spring Break, my mom said that she was planning to go to Korea. So now I’m at Kansai International Airport, getting on a plane in less than 30 minutes. This trip is probably going to be one of the most important events in my entire life.

I don’t know what to expect. And I’m actually very nervous. I’ve only ever traveled between Japan and America. This is the first time I’m going somewhere else. But since I won’t be alone, I know I’ll be okay.

I can’t wait to see my mother.
