Spent Childhood in Korea, Thinking of visiting japan
Posted 5/14/13
I am American Korean. I was born in South Korea and lived there until 5. That's when my immigration thingy is passed and I move to the states with my dad.

Mom and Grandma soon followed after. Graduation day is coming nice and fast. My vacation will be spent in japan. I want to know what it's like there. I watch a lot of anime and I know korea is known to be a gaming/media/social culture. Music and what not.

I see jp commercials and they weird me out. I don't know if I will enjoy my time there?

What do you guys think? Worth going for a new sensation?

Sorry, english not the best.

If you have the opportunity then take it! Many people want to go see other countries but never get the opportunity because of financial problems/time.

Wouldn't it be better to go back to your birth place? I mean staying in a place since you were 5 doesn't tell you (yourself) about your own culture.

I think everyone has a duty to know his or her own culture before exploring others.

Unless you know your own heritage then by all means go for it.

I know my own culture good enough. I came to america, but we never left our culture behind. We still eat korean food. By that I mean authentic korean food and we still celebrate all kinds of holidays that are in korea.

We basically follow the korean timeline in america. Friends call me weird.
