Wanting to congratulate you on your fascinating interview over at hello sandwich. Sending smiles!
oh thankyou jo! ebony is very lovely to have thought of me - i am really touched that it was interesting for you to read - thankyou so much!
I had such incredibly fun taking a good look at all the aspects (the links that is). I love this side of Japan and often wish our culture here in Germany had a bit more of their respect. I learnt a lot about Japan in a course I did for work but never went there (yet). You have had marvellous luck to have been able to start studying the language so early on!
