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

12 or more years. I still speak it fluently

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 am from Japan but Did not have the benefit of going to a Japanese School, so...Yes, to learn to read and write Kanji at Mesa College.

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

Maybe about 10 or more items.(at least!) I love Hello Kitty!


Hello, I'm Haremi. I am half Japanese by my mother and half mulato by my father, rendering me "blackanese". I was born in Tokyo, Japan, came to live in the U.S. for a few years then returned to Japan and stayed until 1970 when I was 16.
