What's your favourite Japanese food?

Sushi - provided that it is a vegetarian version. Also my friend Kosei made some Japanese noodles with vegetables for me once and I loved it... don't know what's the name of it though ;)

How did you become interested in Japan and its language?

Well, I had a few friends from Japan... and also... I've practiced Zen meditation for many years and want to visit one temple in Japan and stay there for a while.

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

I am just a beginner and know only a few words and grammar structures... and hiragana alphabet.

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

Well, I hope to pick up some Japanese, make friends and above all have good fun :-)


I am just a beginner in Japanese language but I love it as well as Japanese culture and people. Can't wait to meet-ups :-)
