John Alexander



Hey everybody! My name is John. I was born and raised in a small town called Fairhope, Alabama. Alabama is in the southeastern part of America. I grew up on Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, so I’ve always loved the beach. I have taught in America, Poland, Czechia, and Japan. In Tokyo, I love to attend different events such as traditional festivals, music festivals, sporting events, seasonal festivals, etc. I love to see live music and attend all kinds of music concerts, both big and small. One of my hobbies is painting, so I love visiting the countless museums and galleries around Tokyo. Lastly, I enjoy attending different sporting events, especially baseball games. When I first came to Japan, I lived in Chiba. Therefore, I am a big fan of the Chiba Lotte Marines and often attend their baseball games. There are always many fun and interesting things happening, so please let me know about your favorite events and things to do! I am excited to get to know all about you, and I look forward to talking with you!
