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

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?

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.
