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

I lived in Tokyo for about 2 months and lived in Aizu-Wakamatsu for about 2 years. I will be visiting there in November of 2012 and probably in November of 2013. I have many friends there.

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 studied Japanese when I was working and living in Japan. I want to study again. I want to speak, write, and read more so that I don't forget. I studied in Aizu-Wakamatsu. I enjoy learning different languages. I am familiar with Korean and German as well.... Sometimes, they all get mixed up.. When I want to speak German, Japanese pops out and vise versa. My next project is Spanish.. Of course, I am so very far from conquering Japanese (It will be a life-time project)

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

none at the moment. I am glad this isn't a requirement !


Konnichiwa, My name is Shane Pak. I grew up in San Diego and lived and worked in Japan in the past. I would like to continue to practice my Japanese and meet good fun people to hang out with. Love sushi, singing in the room, miso-ramen, etc.
