First Blog!!

Welcome to our blog! :) 

Jun and I got married on Dec 26th in Tokyo Japan and have now been married for almost a year now. Some people say that the first year is the hardest, but to us, it was probably the most fun out of the four years we have been together. We moved to Tokyo in May 2010 and have been here since. It hasn't been a long time but we've settled down and love this place!

We met in 2006 in Hawaii at the Polynesian Cultural center on Oahu. I was a hula dancer and Jun was a tour guide at the center. One day our eyes met... and the rest is history!

I am an English teacher, graduated with a degree in TESOL. Jun is working in finance and graduated in Accounting, emphasis in Finance.

We are pretty much the complete opposite of each other. I like to dance, Jun hates dancing. I like basketball, he likes soccer. I'm from New Zealand and he's from Japan. The list goes on forever. But it is through our  differences that we came to love each other and help each other grow and experience new things outside our usual routine.

We'll keep you all posted on the happenings on this side of the world!

Much love,

The Makise's
