Self-introduction

Hello! How's it going? (Hello, how are you?)
It is Mitchell Lang which came from America. The name Mitchell is English in Mitchel or Mitch, but in Japanese please feel free to read Mitchie. I was interested in Japan due to Japanese friends who lived in America when I was young and began studying Japanese. I continued studying steadily and went to Okuraibin University in Tokyo as an international student. As I was seeking opportunities for international exchange in Japan after my study abroad, I was appointed a Niseko town international exchange worker.
My hobby is music. Music like composing, singing, listening to music. Rap, vocals, piano, accordion are doing for the time being, but those who want jams and sessions, please ask me!

Where I'm From:

I am from Seattle. Like Niseko, outdoor sports such as skiing, snowboarding and hiking are popular in Seattle. It is between the sea and the mountains, and Seattle is also rich in nature and green scenery. On the other hand, Seattle has many companies. Seattle is the birthplace of large companies such as Starbucks, Boeing, Amazon and so many people are busy making their way.
Do you know where Seattle is in America? It is on the west coast of the USA and it is near the north near Canada. In contrast to the people on the East Coast, who are said to be impatient, usually wearing suits or talking frankly at work, people on the West Coast went to work with casual clothes at my own pace, It is said that you care about how to express your opinion so as not to hurt. America is a wide country, so culture, values, ways of thinking and so on vary from place to place, but I guess Seattle people seem to be on the west coast. According to a Japanese friend who visited, a man who moved from a different state, the people in Seattle are calm and they often care about their opponent.
