Sheona MacAulay from Edinburgh worked in Hokkaido, Japan, for two years on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) programme as an assistant language teacher of English at junior high schools. She talks about her teaching experiences, as well as her life outside the school, including her struggles against cold in winter, with five months of snow, and heat in summer.

Eve Waugh visited Sheona in Japan twice to find that Sheona became more confident with strangers. Eve talks about her findings of Japan as a tourist, such as staying in a capsule hotel.
