How well can you speak, read, write or understand Japanese?

I can speak at an intermediate level. My reading level is actually pretty low. My wife is native and is also very fluent in English.

What about Japan or Japanese culture interests you?

I like the way people in Japan are cognizant of others around them. They tend to be polite. Even my kids noticed it when we visited about four years ago. I also appreciate their attention to detail and use of kaizen.

Have you ever been to Japan? Where? If not, is there an area that you'd like to visit?

Yes. I lived in Saitama about 15 years ago. I worked at a two-year college in Kanda (Tokyo). I totally loved it.


Hi, I lived in Japan for three years back in the 1990's, and I met my wife who is from Tokyo. We moved to Buckeye, Arizona from Wisconsin about two years ago, and we're interested in meeting others with interest in Japanese language and culture.
