Working as model in Japan

This summer I went to Japan for the first time with a japanese summer study program. Anyway, on the first (and last) night out in Shibuya I remember that a japanese guy asked me to work as a model for him. I asked him for what exactly, and he said it was for a japanese clothing line. He appeared to ...

RE: When Staying in Japan with a host family..

When staying with a host family in Japan, the family will first of all try to include you in the social life of the family. Whether you sleep on a futon or not depends on the family, some families have very classic Japanese standards while other ones are more westernized. I slept on a futon at my ho...

RE: Oh, it's making me mad...

Well, I am also eager to master Japanese as soon as possible but not for the same reasons as you. I think I will realise this summer how frustrating it will be to not be able to communicate seriously with japanese native talkers. But then again I just started learning (doing stuff on my own) for abo...

RE: Working as entertainer in Japan

RE: Working as entertainer in Japan

Thanks, though its definetly way to big for me and they seem to be focused on actors (I noticed the actrice playing nurse aoi) and singers. I should have added that its wont be my goal to actually do this a full-time job. It would be great if I could work part-time as entertainer while studying in J...
