Hi, I'm hachi.

Welcome to my blog! I am a web application engineer in Tokyo, Japan.

I was working as a sales planner at chemical manufacturer, bilingual secretary, translator before. It's been about 2 years since I began working as an engineer.

My character

According to 16 Personalities test, I am Virtuoso type: "Bold and practical experimenters, masters of all kinds of tools". Wow. Exactly, I love to explore and easily get bored as it says.

I like: reading books, taking a walk, music, writing, knowing something new, travel, fashion, old cities, beauty, dogs&cats, alcohol

I dislike: too much overwork in Japan(I hate), packed schedule, surrounded by strangers

About this blog

I quitted my job in Tokyo and decided to go travelling Thailand and Singapore from October 2019 for 4 months.

I love Japan, but working in Japan is really hard on the whole. Not a few people work too much overtime, without extra pay in some cases, and get mental or physical illness due to stress and fatigue.

This trip to Southeast Asia is not only vacation but a way for me to try to live and work abroad. I hope to migrate to Singapore, Berlin or other suitable cities after I get more skills of programming and English. It is uncertain if I will be employed there, work as Nomad, or live in Japan and overseas half-and-half...

Anyway, I've started this blog to record the trip and my new lifestyle.
