The Last Guardian

I'm sure most of you have heard of Shadow of the Colossus, which was IMO the best PS2 game. The Last Guardian is being made by the same group who made SotC and Ico, and will come out for PS3 in 2012 sometime. I don't know about you guys, but I'm considering buying a PS3 almost solely for this game (...

Re: The Best Way to Learn Kanji

having returned from my summer study abroad program in Japan, It wouldn't have happened to be KCP international would it? No, I just went through my university's program to a private language school. But as for the topic, please just keep in mind that studying kanji to read but not write is questio...

Re: The Best Way to Learn Kanji

Thanks for the advice, both of you. AJBryant, I actually do agree with this advice, as it's a good way to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, and I actually think people should do this from the beginning. Sadly though, I didn't. While studying at my university I did learn kanji with vocabulary sometimes, but...

Re: Let's Play

Well as far as I know there is no word in Japanese that starts with "ん". Might be why the thread died. 8)

I'll do a bit of cheating and just do something from the "ん" line of hiragana.

The Best Way to Learn Kanji

Having finished the 2 years of Japanese offered at my university and having returned from my summer study abroad program in Japan, I've been reduced to studying on my own if I wish to continue learning Japanese (I do). Since true speaking and listening practice are hard to come by in the US, that ba...

Salyu

While in Japan this summer I got to see a short (30 minute) concert by Salyu, and I was wondering how many of you have heard of her. She was the female singer on Bank Band's (Sakurai) "To U" release a few years ago, and has since been signed to Toy's Factory and released a few CD's. Amazing voice, h...

Re: Japanese Food Favorite[s]

One of the greatest things about being in Japan is the food. Most of these have been said, but for food I love おこのみ焼、しゃぶしゃぶ、てんぷら、かつ、らーめん、寿司、even すき屋 is really good. It's genuinely difficult to find a Japanese food that isn't delicious. :P For drinks, 梅酒、日本酒、カルピス、まちゃ、and Real Gold are my favorites. H...

Re: A Cunning Piece of Ham

Thanks guys!

Wow, I have tried everything from takoyaki to cow tongue to okonomiyaki and omuraisu but I had to look up oyakodon. It sounds awesome! I'll have one for you.

Planning a return trip anytime soon? I know I already am. ;)

A Cunning Piece of Ham

How goes it everyone? I'm an American studying Japanese in Hitachi, Ibaraki, Japan for about 2 1/2 months (I'm almost 2 months in already), and while simply being in Japan has helped my Japanese a lot, I still have a LOOOONG way to go. Hence, I found TJP a few weeks ago just killing time while tryin...
