what is your favorite Japanese word(s)?

No answer yet

what brought you to Houston?

Our family immigrated here to explore career opportunities when I was young.

What made you interested in learning Japanese?

I am deeply interested in my roots and I return to Japan at least once a year to visit relatives. It is important for me to clearly communicate to my family and make them proud that I try to retain my culture and language skills.

What is your current Japanese level?

The Japanese that I speak is at an elementary level at best and I often struggle to find words. I can understand fluently what I hear in Japanese since my parents still speak to me. However, my speech is obviously hindered by my Texas twang.


I was born in Japan, but we moved to Houston when I was very young. I no longer speak much Japanese, however I am pushing myself to start again. I am excited to meet Japanese speakers in this area as the opportunity is rare.
