What's your favourite Japanese food?

Various Japanese snacks, desserts, blue-fin tuna (sashimi), sushi, etc.

How did you become interested in Japan and its language?

In my younger years, I've read/watched various manga or shows such as Dragon Ball, Orange Road, Ranma, Robotech, Doraemon, Transformers and Astroboy!

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

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

I would like to meet native Japanese speakers or non-Japanese who have been to Japan to share travel experiences, practice speaking Japanese and to learn more about Japanese culture.


I've studied Japanese on and off for the past 15+ years. Also, I like Japanese culture and food. I've traveled to Japan and would like to go there again.
