Tonkatsu, especially from my favorite restaurant in Hokkaido. Also, any kind of noodles.
Used to take aikido (for seven years). LONG ago! Also used to teach Suzuki piano.
I can order lunch, ask for directions and generally get around. Cannot discuss philosophy and politics. I am better at speaking than understanding a native speaker. I used to know hiragana and katakana, but have forgotten a lot. I can count on one hand the number of kanji I know.
Get a chance to practice conversational Japanese in Vancouver, while my husband and daughter are off skiing! Make new friends!
I've been teaching myself Japanese by listening to Pimsleur CD's; now on Level III, Lessn 11-12. Been to Japan three times. The last time was two weeks before the tsunami of 2011. I live in Hawaii and come to Vancouver frequently.
