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

none at all

What about Japan or Japanese culture interests you?

I'm JA so it interests me since I am third generation and feel as though I am not in touch. I did grow up in a rural community where there were a lot of first, second, and third generation Japanese.

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

No. Not sure. I guess I would start with the temples.


I'm a Realtor, and I am JA, third generation. Unfortunately, I do not know any Japanese since my grandparents were the ones to immigrate to the U.S.
