How well can you speak and understand Japanese?

so-so. I'm working on learning it! I know some basic phrases, niceties, and words.

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

We have visited japan twice now (for 2-3 weeks each time): hakone, nikko, shirakawago, wakayama, shirahama, tokyo, kyoto, nagoya, takayama, mt. koya, nara, uji, & okinawa. Oh and we climbed mt fuji from the base at the segen shrine in fujiyoshida ;)

What do you like about Japan?

everything! It really is a world of intriguing culture, fashion, and beauty. I particularly love heian era literature, geiko/maiko, shrines and temples, kimono, tea, gardens, and yokai.


Konnichiwa! I am a kimono enthusiast/collector­ and lover of japanese culture. I'm excited to meet others who share this love.
