• I wish I lived in Japan?

    I'm not going to explain why, but I really wish to. I'm not old enough to go there on my own, and my family of course wouldn't wanna move there. What should I do?

  • I feel connected to Japan?

    Try to not judge me on this please? So I'm a 16 year old girl and I'm from Europe. I've liked Japan ever since I was young. I've always had a strong connection with it.

    Try to not judge me on this please? So I'm a 16 year old girl and I'm from Europe. I've liked Japan ever since I was young. I've always had a strong connection with it. My grandma also loved Japan and had always wanted to visit it. She sadly died before I was born. I always loved anime too, but I am even more interested in their culture and language. Whenever I listen to Japanese music I get so emotional and start crying. Also I kind of wish I was Japanese, but not in a weaboo sort of way (trust me). I just feel that should have been me. But I mainly feel connected to ancient Japan. I've read so many books about that time. I really feel connected to it. This may sound stupid and cringy to a lot of you, so if it does, please just leave? This is my own opinion. Anyways, I don't know what to do. What do you think about this?

  • Is it true that it is almost impossible to have a normal social life if your black and live in Japan?

    Best answer: Pretty much, yeah. But it's not specifically because you are black, but simply because you are not Japanese. They are a very insular people, and don't like to interact overmuch with foreigners and outsiders. Black (and indeed white) people are just more obviously foreign than someone from Korea or China is... show more

Black (and indeed white) people are just more obviously foreign than someone from Korea or China is (although a Korean would probably actually be overtly shunned if it were found out that they are Korean. There's a lot of bad blood between Japan and Korea).

I was with a very obese student who went to teach in China. He was surrounded by admiring girls- in places where food is hard to get, fat people are revered. You might be better off going to China or Korea.

    Best answer: Because a 4.4 earthquake can be fore shock to higher magnitude earthquake is why. After the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami , I am NOT surprised Japanese TV stations are doing this. . A 4.4 is NOT negligible earthquake. LOTS of people can feel 4.4 and 3.4. My first real earthquake was a 3.4 with the holocenter more than 100 miles (NOT kilometers) away. At first i thought a heavily loaded Semi truck had gone by apartment and that was shaking the building, Until i realized, "Carol, this is ceentral OKLAHOMA < NOT not water saturated former swamp New Orleans.. This was in 1984, BEFORE all the fracking induced earthquakes started in Oklahoma.

    In case you have forgotten. that tsunami caused nuclear power plant disaster.. Of COURSE they are warning the general public..The radio stations are probably doing the same thing.It's PUBLIC HEALTH issue.

  • Visiting Tokyo next month and want to send postcards to the US. Will there be any problems if I write the address in English?

    If I enter a Japanese post office with a stack of postcards, with a Virginia address written in English, and say "I would like to mail these to the United States," will that cause any problems for delivery?
