I want to thank you for allowing me to stay as Uchideshi. I am very grateful for the opportunity. My stay has given me a new outlook on life. The lack of jobs and tasks tugging at me every second of every day. The enjoyment of spending the day training and not worrying about anything else. Sharing and making memories with such great friends. It has made me highly motivated to reduce my stress and workload, to re-balance my life. If I could, I would apply for a year long stay.
