My name is Yuji. I’m working in a company as an electronics engineer. I live in Tukuba city, Ibaraki prefecture. This town is located to the north of Tokyo, about one hour by car or train.

There are a lot of places to visit around here. For example, Kashima-Jingu Shrine which has a history of more than 1000 years; Mt Tsukuba with Tsukuba Shrine which offers an excellent view; the world's tallest Buddha statue of Ushiku-Daibutsu; Ryujin-ootsurihashi bungee jump. This is highest in Japan (100 meter high). Also Kairakuen garden with its 300 years of history.
Besides, there are a lot of places where you can experience Japanese daily life.
