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

I've been to Japan four times so far. The first three were all for about 2 weeks each, and always during the summer. More recently, I did a study abroad in Japan spring, 2009 for four months. I was studying at Temple University's law school in Tokyo.

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 studied Japanese for two years in college and have been self-studying since then for a grand total of about four years.

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

I don't own any Hello Kitty items.


As far back as I can remember, I've been interested in Japan. Although this isn't quite like being in Japan, I think belonging to a group like this is the next best thing, and hopefully also a good way to improve my Japanese.

What Jonathan is saying about this Meetup Group

If you want to ask questions about Japanese, practice it, or just make friends, this is a great group to join.
