I'm half Japanese but in fourth grade I was surprised that not everyone owned a rice maker.
It's weird being half since the white kids consider you Japanese while the Japanese kids consider you white.
It's like living in limbo, but I like it.
It just comes with it's quirks.
I'm really offended when my health teacher claims that SPAM is the worst food on the planet.
He is obviously not from a Japanese family!
Also, on New Years I always have to have mochi soup for good luck.
I think there is way to many things that Japanese people experience to list here but I just thought I would say, yup, I am Japanese!
