Kira Kira (or キラキラ in Japanese) means sparkling, and incidentally, happens to be my name. While I’m well aware that this adventure won’t be all sparkles and ease, I’m ready to see what’s out there. I was called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (that’s right, the Book of Mormon musical, in *real life*) and will be leaving Stanford University to spend 18 months in Southern Tokyo and the Kanagawa Prefecture. Follow my adventures as I explore the culture, cuisine, style, and all things with good spiritual vibes.
