Happy new year everyone! Hope the beginning of the new decade is starting off wonderfully!
In this issue, we made our own unique chopsticks/butter knife out of local fruit wood of Yamagata in Kaminoyama!
This time around, we interviewed one of two Sports Exchange Advisors (SEA) in Yamagata - Bahati Rodgers from Tanzania! We heard his experiences being an SEA and his experiences with his family here in Yamagata for the past two years..
Lastly, the Counselling Corner tells us the increased fees surrounding distracted driving.

We publish Face to Face three times a year. Each newsletter includes an exploration of a specific part of Yamagata, various voices and opinions from other foreigners living in Yamagata, as well as some tips and advice from our counselling corner.
