Hello! I just wanted to introduce myself, as this is my 1st time posting. My name is Justin and I'm from Minneapolis Minnesota. I look forward to learning everything I can about Japan on these forums! I hope to visit this beautiful country soon! I have been extremely interested with Japan for many years. In high school I went to a Native American boarding school in Salem Oregon, and we had some cultural exchanges with the students at the Tokyo International University which is also located in Salem. I learned how beautiful the culture of Japan is, also that we had a lot in common with our japanese counterparts.
