How much time have you spent in Japan and where? Or, if you are Japanese, how long have you been away from Japan?

I have spent many years in Kyoto.

If you are not from Japan, have you studied Japanese? Where?

I was born in Kyoto and learned Japanese there. But it's not enough. Japanese is very difficult.

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

I had a lot of them in Japan. Because my daughters like it. But I don't have any in the United States.


My name is Akira Nakazawa. I am in San Diego on business. My hometown is Kyoto. I love Kyoto and San Diego.

    Yo Akira-san, I heard it through the grapevine that you're back in San Diego...is that true?

    Akira definitely has a great sense of humor. He made my first meetup very enjoyable. I enjoyed speaking about the old days in the Kansai area with him. He is definitely worth getting to know

    There is not a more pleasant, fun gentleman than Akira. The United States has him on loan for a while, and we're hoping to keep him! He has an amazing temperament, infinite patience and does not stop smiling. What a wonderful person to have as an ambassador from across the seas.

    Anyone who doesn't like Aki is someone I don't want to know.

    Pretty good softball player but needs to "step on it!"
    Watch out when he mixes Tequila and Sake...
