Life in Japan is Not Easy
 Being a Japan blogger, I often read comments from young people around the world about how they "wished they'd been born Japanese," and this always makes me smile a little. While Japan is a wonderful country that's managed to build a peaceful, happy society, there are some areas...

The History of Hentai Anime
 One reason I believe anime became so popular around the world is that it's a medium that's free to tell dramatic stories involving violence, death, love and even sex, which was a big change over the days when American cartoons were overseen by parental watchdog groups to ensure they contained...

On Transliteration
 Transliteration is the act of transcribing words from one writing system to another, and it's an inherently imprecise process because languages seldom have the courtesy to match up perfectly. This is why the old rulers of Russia can be either tsars or czars, why Mao Tse-Tung suddenly changed to Mao...

Happy Cat Day!
 This Saturday, February 22, is 猫の日 neko no hi or Cat Day here in Japan, due to the fact that 2/22 can be pronounced nyan-nyan-nyan, which is "meow meow meow" in Japanese. While the number of households keeping dogs is slightly higher, the Japanese are big fans of cats as they make excellent...

Ninjas and Japan
  One thing I've always been impressed with is the "cultural footprint" of Japan, which is just a small country in east Asia yet its culture and influence can be felt in all corners of the world. Most of us may not know that much about countries like Vietnam or Belgium or Algeria, yet we...

Japan, Peanut Butter and Root Beer
 Living in another country can really make you appreciate the little things from back home. This morning I was late for work, so I grabbed a piece of toast and prepared to run out the door with it hanging out of my mouth, anime style. I reached for the peanut butter and saw that I was almost out, so I...

The Season for Outfitting One's "New Life"
 One thing to know about Japan: everything starts in April, from the school year to the official start of work for new employees at companies to the blooming of the beautiful sakura which represent the coming of spring. Because so many things change in April, the preceding months are when people prepare,...

Ecchi Anime Recommendation: Seitokai Yakuindomo
  A few posts ago I wrote about how high schools in Japan often come in girls- and boys-only varieties, though as the population of students falls, many of these same-gender schools are becoming co-ed in an attempt to find enough students to fill their classrooms. That's the story behind Seitokai...

Genki and Pantsu for Northern Japan
 One of the big trends in Japan these days is anime series about idols, and shows like IdolMaster, Love Live! School Idol Project, AKB0048, White Album, and Dog Days all revolve around fictional idols who are often only slightly less "real" then the girls in Japan's idol groups like AKB48....

Record Snowfall for Japan
  When the Tokyo area got 11 inches (27 cm) of snow last week, the most seen in Japan's capital in 20 years, we were all amazed and a little inconvenienced. Then over the weekend we got another snowstorm which was much worse, dumping an unbelievable 31 inches (81 cm) of snow on J-List's home prefecture...
