How well can you speak and understand Japanese?

I have a Masters in Japanese and have been living there for a while so everyday conversation level when speaking is fine. I can read just about everything and look up a word if I cant understand a meaning given to me in Japanese I guess!

Have you visited or lived in Japan? If so, what cities?

I lived in Akita while I went to school. I stayed in Takamatsu when I came back after college then worked in Toyohashi, Gifu, Nagoya, Osaka, and Tokyo.

What do you like about Japan?

I really miss the inaka/countryside. I loved traditional meals and sitting in a tea house relaxing with friends. Tokyo was a bit too fast paced for me, but it was really fun to be there. I really miss just being in Japan.


Hi! I am moving to Tampa after living in Japan for about ten years. I would like to find people who also speak Japanese and hopefully learn about the international community and job market in Tampa! Thank you!
