Topics: Look more japanese?
Today I’m very happy to present you a guest post by a great fellow Japan blogger.
It’s Ken Seeroi from “ Japanese Rule of 7 “. I’m sure you’ve heard of him, and I highly recommend reading his blog. I adore his writing style. You’ll learn what life in Japan is really like in a funny and sometimes sarcastic way. Check it out!
“I’m originally from the U.S. I first came to Japan in 2003 , and started studying Japanese shortly thereafter. I moved here permanently in 2008 , at which point I gave up eating cheeseburgers, wearing wrinkled t-shirts, and speaking English. This has had some mixed results, but at least my wardrobe looks fantastic and my cholesterol level is nice and low.
I spend a tremendous amount of time asking Japanese people, in Japanese, what they think about Japan, love, sex, foreigners, language, and everything else under the sun. This seems to elicit very different results than speaking in English. What I see often seems unlike the Japan depicted in books and on the net, and sometimes I wonder, What country are these people talking about? Anyway, I just try to present what I’ve learned and experienced in the most authentic way possible, so hopefully others can think about Japan in a well-rounded manner.”
