Do I speak Japanese?__ seriously want to learn?__ want to teach?__

I speak a little Japanese having taken courses for two years and traveled to Japan twice. I seriously want to learn and would be very open to teaching if the opportunity ever arose.

Do I have a favorite Japanese culture story that I want to tell you?

Yes, quite a few! I love climbing mountains when visiting Japan, and most revolve around those experiences.

Why?... Yes! Why am I interested in the culture and language of the people of Japan?

My career is absolutely contingent on my Japanese language knowledge, although this is certainly not the source of my interest. I am a native Virginian, so until now the mountains have always been my home. For me, there is nothing more calming that walking, climbing and camping in the mountains. For the past 1200 years, many Japanese have observed systemic and localized traditions that venerate mountain sites. Mountains are central to Japanese religion, and for me, there is nothing more interesting than such a development.

Will I help our Group as an Assistant Organizer, or a special event's Guest Organizer? Maybe__ No__ Yes__

Maybe.

__Yes, I have completed my Profile page and posted my modest passport-style ID photo to MAKE NEW FRIENDS faster & help all of you to find ME quick at our events. :)

Not yet, but I will very soon!

Introduction

I am a graduate student at Columbia University studying Japanese religions.
