So I just moved back to the United States after living in Japan for about a year. I know a lot of stuff about Japan now so if you want me to compare real Japanese life to your favorite anime..I can do that haha Feel free to ask any questions I'm open to any and all!

How easy is it to be there if you don't speak Japanese? I'd like to visit in a few years, but my Japanese isn't very good...

It depends on where you live..in Tokyo it's not that hard considering there are always travelers around and what have you...but I stayed in Yamanashi which is like bum f***** Egypt compared to Tokyo..but you can always get by using hand gestures and stuff. Sign language is very useful haha but the students there speak some english (like "my name is") and usually there are always those excellent english speakers that can help guide you.

What region did you live in? Kanto, Kinki, Hokkaido, etc...

in a grocery market what was the potatoes labled as? was it 馬鈴薯 (じゃがいも) (jagaimo) or was it ポテト(poteto). i got into an argument about a friend over this. i only traveled around the kanto region. maybe on other places they used the loan word but every market i went to had it labeled jagaimo and fast food used poteto for "french fries"

did you have your own personal internet connection? last time i visited. the persons house i was staying at the default dns would not resolve a lot of us domains i was trying to visit.

Where you on a work Visa or did you apply for a long-term residency? considering with an american passport the maximum Visa-free stay time is 90 days

did you goto a school culture festival? i went to one, my friend was an english teacher and his class sizes where only about 6-15 students and he taught at a private academy. compared to anime the culture festival was really small and just a little underwhelming.
But in a (public) prefecture school it might be different.

for all of you who want bento's. You can order a bento box online and make them your self just look up how to cook the items you want in it.

I'm thinking about going there for college, do you think that it will be 10x harder to study there than america? Also did you have to change your name to a Japanese name?
