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

I've never added up all the time I've spent there, but it's probably about 4 years.

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 first studied Japanese at the Claremont Colleges. Then I took a summer intensive class the summer before I went to 早稲田大学 in Tokyo, where I studied for an additional year. Then I studied more, both at the Claremont Colleges and UCLA.

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

Oh, there are a (very) few scattered around my apartment.


ハロー! I've spent a total of about four years of my life in Japan and consider Tokyo my second home. This group gives me motivation to keep up my Japanese skills.
