Welcome back, Hatori.

How old are you now?
Are you a Chinese teacher? >> 我是老师。。。。
Well, I'm graduating high school in just a few months... and no, I'm not a teacher. It's kind a joke from my Chinese class. :whistle:

Kind of sort of new?

Hey, ya'll! I'm Hatori. I wrote a blog about the reasons I'm back on this website but I'll just post random tidbits of my life: I love foreign language... but I don't want to do it as a job. Japanese will become my 5th foreign language I'm studying. I went to Germany for a month last summer as an ex...

Re: How Popular is Dance in Japan?

I always found the Obone dances to be some of the most interesting. I've danced at Obone festivals a few towns over. It was so interesting, but I look absolutely stupid when I dance. :oops: Sadly, I wasn't able to go to any festivities this year, so, I missed out on some dancing. I haven't really s...

Re: How Popular is Dance in Japan?

And here I thought the OP was asking about festival dances. Darn. tht, you can talk about festive dances. What I meant by "traditional" vaguely included festival dances. :D I don't know for sure, but I believe that ballroom dancing gained in popularity a bit after Shall we ダンス? came out. I really w...

How Popular is Dance in Japan?

Hello, the title speaks for itself. Is taking dance lessons a popular thing to do in Japan for adults and kids? I'm not only talking about traditional dance styles, but things that are more modern, such hiphop or ballroom. In America I know tons of children and teens that take lessons and perform fo...

Tattoo Taboo in Baths

Hiya. I know that tattoos are associated with yakuza. I was reading on another forum that people aren't permitted to enter baths if they have tattoos. I'm not so sure if this source is quite reliable , so I want to hear what you have to say. If anybody has seen this happen or has had tattoo trouble ...

Hello! I haven't posted for a long while... Anyway, I was watching bad daytime TV today and I came across Days of Our Lives. My mom watched this show for almost the whole time this drama-Soap has been on TV and said it's been on for 30+ years. I was wondering if there are any TV shows like Days of O...

I know there are some places you can get a job when you are younger, but that's the usual age you can get a job in Jewel/Albertson's, fast food chains, etc. I was wondering what is the general age a ...

RE: My attempt to writing something.

Thank you, Yudan. I was thinking of putting something that was actually correct in Japanese or had that silly feeling to it. I appreciate your help. :D

@sei- I'm a bit confused as for when I use particles, but I'm trying to work on my skills in my freetime. :)

My attempt to writing something.

Hello, everybody. I've actually tried to write and translate something into Japanese based upon my knowledge of grammar, which is very poor. For my signature, I'm trying to write "Hatori wants TJP shirts." From my bad Japanese, I came up with: ハトリTJPシャツひつよお。 I know in very simple sentences the verb ...
