Used to speak/read 3rd year Japanese, but now probably only speak 1st year. :(
History, Art, Language. Samurai armor got my attention first while in Jr High. I don't know, but something about the koto, or taiko can really touch me deep inside. These days, everything 'Japanese' is natsukashii it seems.
One month in Chiba (Inage and Anagawa). Would love to visit Hokkaido some day.
I've been interested in Japanese culture and language since high school. Studied three years of Japanese at ASU, and met many Japanese friends there. Visited Chiba once years ago. Have not practiced Japanese for awhile.
Nice group to connect to or reconnect with Japanese culture and language.
