O lago Osawa-no-ike, construído no séc. VIII, é o lago artificial mais antigo do Japão. Fica junto à Casa do Imperador Saga (hoje Templo Daikaku-ji). Fiz uma agradável caminhada à volta deste pacífico lago num solarengo dia de inverno. O céu azul refletia-se na superfície da água, onde o gelo tinha acabado de derreter. O ar frio que tocava na minha face era suave e fresco. Caminhando ao longo do trilho, havia um campo aberto, um pomar de ameixeiras, e uma floresta de bambus no lado norte do lago.

Born in the Portuguese countryside in 1990, I've been living in Japan since 2012. After finishing my Computer Engineering University Course in Lisbon, Portugal, I decided to study Japanese in Tokyo, with the purpose of continuing my studies there. After one year of studying of the language, I entered a Japanese Professional College where I finished my study in 2015. I am now working in a videogame Japanese company as Motion Designer. I also write in my blog about Japan. My goal is to introduce Japan to anyone who is interested in the culture, the language, the music, the anime, the food, and so on. And that's what you can find there: everything! Plus, my experience here as a Portuguese expat.
