As I have said I have a some what love affair for Japan and more a less anything Japanese.I think it would be from my child hood where I used to watch a few Anime with my older Brothers such as Wolfs Rain.Then as I grew so did my Interest,Once game we used play at primary school was where we had to bow to each other and say hello in Japanese to each other,My first taste of Culture and a word from Japan. Odd game to say but it may have added to my thirst to learn more about Japan,I was a new girl at schools as we moved a lot with my fathers work I mind a few Kids ask if I was Japanese with my Jet black hair and I tan very easy so would have a olive completion.Kids say the Strangest things lol.
My other Love from Japan is that no matter what they can make it REALLY cute LOL. If you are a regular reader you will know my secret love for Miss Hello Kitty,whom was created in Japan and taken on by the company Sanrio,And I have some collection of her in Plushie aka Soft toys.
Last year Japan was hit really bad by a earthquake and then a Tsunami,It destroyed Lives,I happen to have friend in Japan and He felt the quake and posted it on Facebook I guess I knew of this quake before a lot of folks and when I sat and saw the damage,tears fell,My beautiful Japan took one heck of a hit from Mother Nature,Being a Witch I lit a white candle for hope and peace for Japan and let it burn of days on end,Lucky for me my Friend was safe and sound.
With my love for Japan and its Culture I do my best to understand it and because I love the Language I even have a good few JPop cds I listen too,as well I am trying Very slowly to learn to be able to say a lot in Japanese for some reason maybe due to me being dyslexic I can understand Romaji (Japanese written in our ABCs)fairly well and be able to sound out there sounds.Its my biggest dream to go there and see it all for myself.
Until we merry meet again ....Sore dewa mata! n.n xxx
