How well can you speak, read, write or understand Japanese?

I did pass the JLPT level 4 at one time, but failed level 3. A while ago. . .

What about Japan or Japanese culture interests you?

I love the aesthetic aspect of written Japanese. . that's how I was initially drawn in. Then as a teacher into the education system.

Have you ever been to Japan? Where? If not, is there an area that you'd like to visit?

I've lived outside the Tokyo area (Machida), Kanazawa (Ishikawa ken), and Okinawa (on JET). I really would like to visit Kyushu or Hokkaido. Kansai ROCKS!


Hello! I love Japan and Japanese things, lived there for a long time.

What Carol is saying about this Meetup Group

This group is an excellent way to keep in touch with Japan. Many members are native; have gone, are going, or are in Japan now. I'm sure you're one of the above.
