When we arrived in Nagano the first thing we did was find the station lockers to put our bags in so we could explore the city without the load on our backs. We made our way to Zenkoji Temple. Seeing Zenkoji Temple was amazing, especially with the surrounding autumn colors of the time. I even participated in some activities while I was there like purifying myself and lighting incense. While we were there I even got stopped by a group of people who were filming a documentary. They asked me questions like what I came to Japan for and why I chose to come to Nagano. I never did ask their names or the name of the documentary but I had fun talking with them anyway.

He's right. I will remember those two words now through my mistake. It's like that saying "you learn from your mistakes." Don't be afraid to make mistakes when trying to speak Japanese. Everyone was a beginner at some point in their life, and even the most advance speakers make mistakes too. The more you try the better outcome you will get with your Japanese study.
I hope you enjoyed this little story about my Japanese language mix up. And I hope it helps you overcome that first initial fear of speaking the language. It'll be rough at first but it will get better with practice.
