I'll ask about the food... what does a typical breakfast usually consist of in Japan? And do people there seem to eat a lot of fast food, or do they generally make/cook their own food?

Lol, that might be a little too personal to ask someone. Although, I guess the OP could just make something up just for a little "training." ^__^

Some Japanese people, cooking breakfast.
White rice + Miso Soup + Bake Fish + pickles is normal.

But sometimes only Bread + Coffee.

Or people go to restaurant.

This is only from $4.

Wow, that's quite a different breakfast than what I think most people have here in the U.S. And that egg in the pic looks raw, is that normally how u eat them?

I don't speak for all Americans, lol, but I think the typical breakfast for us would be something like (cooked) eggs , bacon, toast, cereal, orange juice, coffee, bagel, & maybe pancakes. Obviously not all of this at the same time, but usually some kind of combination of them.

In japan,Egg's eat raw. Soy sauce over the eggs and go to rice.

There's no Salmonella grerm.

American's breakfast is not good for me...

This is prolly a dumb question, but do most people in Japan sleep on beds or on the floor?

Also, I have to ask this (since watching animes has gotten me a little confused), but how many years do u spend in high school? Sorry, I'm not sure if it's actually called "high school" though in Japan.

こちらこそ初めまして。 Mono-no-Awareさん。
Crunchrollは良いサイトですね、日本からは利用することが出来ません。
英語は多くの日本人にとって難しいです。 でも、日本語は英語より難しい構造をしているので外国人が習得するのはより難しいと思います。
