    I really admire Japanese culture.

    I was given the privilege to visit the country once and the experience for me was excellent. People are disciplined, courteous, kind.

    Yes I Do, Good Sir

    Japan is crazy cool.  I am American, but I'll take sushi and anime over hamburgers and football any day.  Hopefully I will be able to go to Japan in a foreign exchange program for at least one year of high school.  I do not want to live in America, though my time...

    Climbing Mount Fuji

    A sage once proclaimed, “He who climbs Mount Fuji once is a wise man; he who climbs it twice is a fool.” I am a wise man – who longs to be a fool. It may have been at the behest of the world’s largest and cleanest nuclear Navy that I was ordered to Japan, but it was my...

    It All Started...

    Ever since freshman year, I've gotten more and more into alot of things Japanese. Of course, starting with video games throughout childhood, then Anime, Manga, and even different Japanese foods. I eventually tried to study Japanese, but there was no room to truly study, so I...

    Samurais

    Erotica Par Excellence

    In my humble opinion, the Japanese are the best creators and presenters of artistic erotica the world has ever known. Their modern *********** is second to none, far more interesting, far deeper, far more adventurous than the shallow muck that comes out of USA and much of Europe...

    Japanese Secret Weapon Revealed

    This is an extract from a novel MS I have written. Nobody was talking about it. Not about planes, not about submarines, not about anything Japanese, not about the Pacific War of 1939-1945. But Christ’s bald headed mate from Tasmania thought he’d tell them anyway. The...

    J-Pop Music.

    I really love the Japanese Pop music. It's much better than American pop music! My favorite artists are: Ayumi Hamasaki, Kumi Koda, Namie Amuro, capsule and Aural Vampire (don't think they classify under J-pop). Overall, I just really love Japanese music in general. I love the...

    I grew up around "red necks",

    Bukkake

    Japanese culture is so innovative and at the leading edge in so many areas (think Honda, Toyota, Sony, Sanyo, Kurosawa, Imamura, Oe). Bukkake hit the West with surprise. That erotica could involve anonymous girls as front line actors astounded the cheap shallowness of US and...

    Lived There Several Years

     It was great. It was during a time of change in Japan, of renewal and growth.  I was renewed and grew with it.  I learned the language, became an interpreter and later in the US worked for an arm of the Japanese Government.
