A Cunning Piece of Ham

Postby TheSlyPig » Thu 08.25.2011 4:57 am

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 trying to get ahead a bit more in 日本語, and it ended up being so helpful that I've been coming back and ended up making an account to supplement it. I took 2 years of 日本語 at my university in the States, and ended up liking the language so much (and making a lot of Japanese friends) that I planned this (ridiculously last minute) summer study abroad trip.

Anyways, I love 日本 and 日本語 and I'm sure I always will, so I'll most likely stick around. ;)

Welcome to the madhouse.

You're discovering, then, the great truth that there is nothing better than living there to make the skillset improve. :)

Have a nice oyakodon for me. I miss Japan.

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. ;)

I haven't been there for over ten years (!!!) now. I hope to go back sometime next year, kamisama willing. :)
