Tell us about your interest in, or your relationship to, Japan / Japanese.

I have been to Japan a couple times. Three weeks with the JR Pass. I visited Tokyo, Nikko, Kamakura, Yokohama, Aomori, Hakodate, Sapporo, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Wakayama, Kobe, Hiroshima, Miyajima, Toyama, and Niigata.

If you are not from Japan, have you studied Japanese? Where? 日本の方、日本のどこからですか?

I currently take a Japanese class offered at my work. Absolute beginner level but it is nice to be instructed by a native Japanese speaker and learn among peers. Prior to that I studied Japanese independently for almost a year by listening to audio lessons while commuting to work. Unfortunately I took over a year hiatus and forgot most of what I had learned, but I've doubled my efforts this time around.

How many Hello Kitty items do you own? (No, possession of Kitty-chan articles is not a requirement of membership.)

Zero. I don't think I will ever own anything Hello Kitty. That's girly stuff.


Hello everyone/Mina-san konnichiwa. I'm trying to learn Japanese for the fun of it, but I also work for a Japanese company so there are potentially business and communication opportunities that go along with it. I only know rudimentary Japanese.
