It is coming up to Burke's 20th year of living in Japan. That's almost half of his life, and for me, I have just passed the 14 year mark, so we thought that it would be the perfect time to talk about the main reasons that have kept us in Japan for such a long time. I'm not going to give away the biggest reasons for staying in Japan long term, so please listen to find out. Enjoy the show!
