Tell us about your interest in, or your relationship to, Japan / Japanese.

Born in Osaka. Go back and forth to Tokyo as an adult. I like ni-chome. ;)

If you are not from Japan, have you studied Japanese? Where? 日本の方、日本のどこからですか?

I was born in Japan, and moved to California when I was eight. I went to J-school until 9th grade. I worked as a translator to pay for my schooling. :)

How many Hello Kitty items do you own? (No, possession of Kitty-chan articles is not a requirement of membership.)

No answer yet


Hello. I was born in Osaka, grew up in Los Angeles, lived in San Fran, and now I live in San Diego. I went to J-school on Saturdays as I was growing up, so I can speak Japanese. Nihongo wo motto shaberitai desu.
