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

I have visited Japan twice, 2 weeks each time, and hope to make more trips in the future, especially as I hear non-stop service is coming to Tokyo soon from SD! My mother's side of the family all live in Japan and most do not really speak English much.

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 am now using 2 audio series, Michel Thomas and Pimsleur.

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

OK, this is one arena of Japanese culture I'm not particularly in to.


My name is Marie. My mother is Japanese and I have a natural affinity for all things Japanese. I recently began learning conversational Japanese & like to practice.

What Marie T. is saying about this Meetup Group

very friendly & welcoming.
