hi i am an american woman living kochi, japan with my japanese husband and our 18 month old daughter, Ahmee Isabella. I have been living here for five years but hope to go back and live in the US again.
I found this site while I was looking for ways to learn japanese, and signed up because this is cool! I enjoy learning new languages and the traditions and customs of different cultures intrigues me; so I think that this site will be very helpful.
I hope to engage in interesting discussions and hopefully learn a few things and meet new people on the way .
first off the yosakoi festival will be in august.
it is great to see an american married to a japanese here. if you are interested come and check out my website for women in bicultural marrigaes at http://foreignwivesclub.com and visit the forums there.
lastly, i live in kochi city and am not sure i know where hata is. how big a town is it? do you get to the city often? my daughter keeps me busy so i dont get to post here often but if you post a reply i will get a notice about it.
