Hi Cintia, I'm from Austria. Pleased to meet you too.

As for your Japanese heritage: does your family still have contacts to Japan?

japanese heritage

Yes, as a matter of fact my mother is japanese and she has two brothers and one sister. The three of them were born in Argentina (i.e. they are nissei) and they have been living in Japan for more than ten years.
Apart from them, we have lots of japanese relatives (brothers and sisters of my grandparents, cousins, etc.)
My mother was born in Fukuoka, in the island of Kyushu.
What about you?

My current contacts to Japan are "limited" to being married to my Japanese wife and having my in-laws in Japan, lol.

Btw, we are hosting a Nikkei and Nissei-related website, just in case you are interested:

Nikkei Net Association

thank you! Iツエll check that site.
Itツエs so amazing that we are able to communicate in spite of the distance, isnツエt it?
This is the first time I meet someone from Austria, I bet itツエs very cold there.
Itツエs summer in Argentina and the temperature is around 35ツコC plus a lot of humidity. Have a nice evening! If you ever need anything or would like to write, my email is cintianatalia@datafull.com

Yep, the net is amazing, isn't it? :)

It's pretty chilly here at the moment, though we have no snow. Enjoy summer, I'm craving for the warmth of the sun, lol.

Hey there Cintia.

Welcome to the forum from me too. :)

35ツコC eh?
Not sure if that's something to be jealous about. ;)

Hello Twisted, thank you for the welcome. I see people are really nice here!
Yes....Iツエm not that proud of this hot weather either... itツエs ok that it is hot, but it is humid too, so people sweat all the time even if you are sitting down . According to your flag you are from Netherlands, what is your connection with Japan?

A few years back i stumbled upon some Japanese (pop- and rock-)music and i've kinda made it my field of expertise over the years.

Other then that i have no connection with Japan whatsoever. :)

Looking for a friend

Hello, thank you everybody for the warm welcome. I would like to know if there is anyone here who lives in Japan and could help me find a japanese friend. I met her when I visited Japan in 1999 and when I returned to Argentina we kept in touch by email and letters. One day she moved and we were never able to communicate again.
She used to live in Fukuoka shi, she got a degree in Economics at Fukuoka Daigaku and she is 26 or 27 y.o. Her name is Misato SODA. I think her parents lived in Hakata. If anyone lives in Japan and could check on the phone directory I will be very grateful. My email is cintianatalia@datafull.com
