I grew up in a small town in Japan and moved to Southern California where I graduated with a degree in Sociology. I have stayed connected with Japan through tutoring and writing on my blog. I look forward to connecting with people interested in my culture and language.
Have you ever wondered why Japanese women cover their mouth with their hand when they laugh or even smile?
The surprising secret that Japanese women use to maintain their flawless skin.

Japan has taken an important step to show a new definition of what it means to be Japanese.
Sakura is not just an unofficial national flower of Japan but it has symbolic significance to people of Japan.

This issue is very complex and will not be fixed overnight. With the help of the community and the Japanese government, I believe that it will become easier for sufferers to seek help.
Stuff happens. It's how you deal with it that makes your life.
