    Originally I was interested in Japan purely for it's amazing Manga/Anime ! But I guess that's a good thing because as I was looking up Anime when I came across fascinating things about Japan's culture, daily life, and high school life. Now I find myself on the computer for hours researching anything I could possibly think of about Japan. I've become very interested in learning Japanese ( im a little past beginners level ) and kanji which ( I decided to delay learning the written language until I've learned the spoken language more fully )I love. Hopefully in the 10th grade I will be going there as an exchange student but there are some difficulties in the process. I'd have to say that the overall culture , and family values interest me most when it comes to my drive to learn more about Japan.
    * please don't take my opinons to heart because we all have our own and are intitled to them. Thank you!

    I always thought of Eastern asian women/girls as pretty or beautiful. When I looked at your web-link I say some really pretty girls on there , although there were some not so pretty ones as well.

    Ashen .

    I would like to STRONGLY suggest that you master hiragana before learning spoken Japanese. Not writing your lessons in Romaji, and only writing them in hiragan will be a big benefit down the line.

    All of the culture. The big cities, nice-than-normal people, language, manga, anime, etc.

    I don't know why, but I feel like I belong there...

    I like a lot of stuff about Japan: the food, the customs, the girls, the anime and manga, the music, Hachiko...everything. If I was able to take a plane to Tokyo and start a new life as a gaijin citizen, I'd seize the opportunity, no doubt. ;)

    Mmmm...I like Traditional Japan, I have read a couple books and I find it quite interesting. the whole kabuki theater thing is quite entertaining and exciting to me...

    But I also like anime and manga(since I am an otaku and a manga-ka). And I also like the people and i LOVE the culture

    When I was younger I was always into the Ninjas and the fighting and what not...other countries just generally fascianted me too. One day i found out Ninjas we're from Japan and I got intersted, then I saw some anime and I enjoyed it and I found that was from japan aswell! So I started learning about it and found many other aspects of the culture that I liked, so yeh. Then I visited japan and there were some damn good times then. Now I can't get enough

    Lets see...

    The long version:
    When I was young I got interested in Japanese culture. I don't remember why. It stayed there in the back of my mind mind for some time. I actually tried studying a little Japanese but I was too lazy I guess. Few years ago I started watching lots of anime. After that I have been interested in Japanese culture, nature, language, anime, manga, Japanese music lots of other stuff. It's strange but Japanese architecture, language and culture seem really familiar like I had lived there in some past life or something. Every time I see a picture of Japan (meaning mostly traditional Japan, not modern stuff) it's so familiar somehow.

    I have a few friends too in Japan now so I want to visit them and be able to talk Japanese well.

    The short version:
    Japanese culture, language, customs, old houses, nature, people.
