Oh,You are going to Japan. It's good.

Party Life? Whats does it mean?
It's a social event when a lot of people meet together to enjoy themselves by eating, drinking, dancing ?
In Japan, People sometimes do party.

>how is dating a hispanic person seen about like is bad or accepted.
It's mean Dating Hispanic people with Japanese people? No problem.
Accept or not,decide people to people.

How long have you been in the US?

Also, what are some of the biggest difference you have experienced?


Hello.
I have stayed about three months.

Most bigger different is ... hmmm many..

I think In Japan use KG/Litter/°C but USA is Use LB/Fl oz/°F.
It's very difficult for me..

And,almost cheaper than japan.
But There's crazy size for Japanese..



Just going to help out a little bit.

'Most bigger different is....' - you should phrase it ( say it ) like, "The biggest difference is". Also, don't end it with 'hmmm many'. You want to start out by saying:

"There are many differences between our cultures, the biggest difference is.....(whatever you want to say)"

Just some helpful tips

I'm curious, what does Japan think about Americans? What are the American stereotypes in your opinion? (Like that we are loud/rude/overweight whatnot?)
What are you most curious about in other countries?
Why are scary ghosts in Japanese films/stories always surrounded with water?
Is the girl Sadako who died post WWII supposed to be a ghost story now, similar to the girl from リング?
Ha I hope that isn't too many questions. Thanks for your thoughts!!

ism3rd, I have another question for you. Do u see a lot of people, young or older generations of Japanese, still upset or bitter towards Americans about the bombings that took place in Japan in the 1940s?

Hi.

>what does Japan think about Americans?
In my opinion, American Guys are Tough,Tall,Fat,Muscle. and American Girls are Golden hair,cute,funny.
I don't think rude. but I can find easier over weight people than in Japan.

>What are you most curious about in other countries?
It's Culture.
Many country were very different culture. I'm so interesting.

>Why are scary ghosts in Japanese films/stories always surrounded with water?
Many japanese thinks that "DARK + WATER + GHOSTS = SCARY."
Because feels bad. very Creepy.


>Is the girl Sadako who died post WWII supposed to be a ghost story now, similar to the girl from リング?
I think there are no relation ship WWII to リング. and Sorry,I don't know well about リング..

Hi.
Questions are very welcome :)

> Do u see a lot of people, young or older generations of Japanese, still upset or bitter towards Americans about the bombings that took place in Japan in the 1940s?
You mean "Hiroshima during World War II"?
Hmm. The answer is maybe no. (different people to people)
Nowadays, We are learn about "Hiroshima during World War II" in elementary school.
But teachers were not say "AMERICA IS BAD". It's a past happening.
and same as student. We don't think "AMERICA IS BAD".
Everyone is not the case, a lot of people ought to have thought the same thing with me.





If you have more question,please feel free to ask me!

Thank you for your thoughts! While I am not Japanese, I studied in the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki for a while. I met a lot of hibakusha, or atomic bomb survivors, and of all of those people I met, no one was the slightest bit bitter with the U.S. I was sure one of them would say something about blame, or that they were angry over what happened to them. Nope. The only want to be heard, and hope that it never happens to anyone else ever again. Wonderful people.

So... I've been dreaming of working in Japan as a pilot for a while now, so I have few questions

What is food in Japan like compared to US?
Are there saunas in Japan? (Finns love saunas)
Are people from Japan racist towards foreigners? (That's a huge problem here in Finland)
Do parents still decide who is their daughter going to marry in Japan?

Damn, I feel like a total idiot for asking these things...
Okay, cool, thanks.

I spent time as an exchange student in Iwate-Ken Prefecture, do you know where this is? Also, have you had any "high fives" since you've been in America?

Hmm... no one's answered yet? Alright, but I'm far from an expert...

Q: What is food in Japan like compared to US?
A: You don't get the variety of food found in the States in Japan. Fast food and pizza are your best bets for foreign-ish food. Anything else, I think you'd have to go out of your way to look for, especially if you want it to taste good/authentic.
At the very least, there's Anna Miller's off Shinagawa station (Tokyo) for Pennsylvania Dutch food. Most regions in Japan usually have some sort of dish they say that area's known for, so maybe look that stuff up and try the local specialties when you go.
Other than that, there's no end of ramen and cheap Japanese curry places. Other common things are soba, udon, sushi (of course), grilled fish... and rice, rice, rice.

Q: Are there saunas in Japan?
A: Haven't seen any. There are a lot of steamy baths, though.

Q: Are people from Japan racist towards foreigners?
A: I haven't encountered this myself, and certain random Japanese people have offered to help me out on occasion despite me not asking for it. Do be aware of social boundaries, however, and try not to cross them.

Q: Do parents still decide who is their daughter going to marry in Japan?
A: Maybe if you're really old-fashioned? I dunno about how this works in reality, but I really wanna say this doesn't happen much anymore.

If anyone else has some better insights, by all means...
