The Quality of Research Update
I’ve found even when I put in several hours a day researching certain things about Japan, the culture, history and what have you, I still seem to not be able to get an article out every day, but I also decided I’d rather have it this way, instead of pushing the situation. I’m personally working on some purposeful use articles. Like how the trash is sorted in Fukuoka as well as doing some research on the sharing culture and the etiquette, so I believe having these articles fairly researched over a few days a bit better then flinging random information out that I find on the first video or article that pops up on a Google search.
Also with this new take on my article writing and research I’m taking a suggestion (to a point) from a user on Jref.com as well about how even basic things can be skewed over the internet. The internet is not all mighty and there is a huge gap in certain things and information, which is true, so I’ll be working on more ‘useful’ information for myself before leaving to Japan. With that said, I also have learned a lot of things about the world and Japan that have been confirmed by real people, so it’s not entirely a bad thing (obviously). Since I developed this site personally for myself to learn about the culture and then for you (and others) next, I have to decide what is going to best serve me on my journey. With that, I’ve decided to do some work on dialect work from Fukuoka here in the future (and other relevant works) as that’s where I’ll be living and that’s what truly important. I do look forward to filming and doing personal work while over there that is physical and can be measured in real-time instead of constantly having to personally research situations about Japan. Instead I’d like to report on real time on goings from inside Japan. We’re also hoping to get a guest writer position for http://fukuoka-now.com
So even though we’ve (I) have not been able to do an article a day, I am still researching to write better quality and perhaps more truthful and accurate information moving forward as best as I can.

About the Author
I've been interested in Japanese as a language and as a culture since I was about 15 years old. In April 2017 my wife and I moved to Fukuoka, Japan to go to school for 2 years. We've since returned to America and now are looking to expand Nihon Scope further for future visitors of Japan to get in touch with the best school they can. We're also here sharing our experiences of Japan and the culture. Get in touch with us on Facebook for the quickest response!
