What's your favourite Japanese food?

Most! I'm not especially inclined to have favourites where food is concerned but I appreciate good food!

How did you become interested in Japan and its language?

I grew up with a lot of Japanese media (Pokémon, Final Fantasy and a slew of other anime and games) as many people did, but I guess I found somewhere in them an affiliation with the Japanese culture which I didn't shake off as I grew up. I like Japanese history, crafts etc. (not just TV shows and games!) too.

What is your level of proficiency with spoken and written Japanese?

Er... zero? I hope that's OK. I've, as I mentioned, been fascinated with Japan since I was very young but got sidetracked studying Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean and French in that order (not that I'm any good at any of them yet) but I do hope to become proficient.

What do you hope to achieve through your membership with this group?

A better acquaintance with Japan (naturally through meeting people) and consequently an insight into things I do not yet know of :)
