But to be practical, Japan isn't all the kimino/geisha greatness. The people here in Japan are less friendly, more rude, and stare at you if you're a foreigner. Believe me, I get that whenever I'm with my father. Gaijin daaa....
But, yeah - come visit sometime. :P

Hey AMi, can you tell me about Osaka?

The way they talk is unique. It's called Osaka-ben. I talk like that too, when I speak Japanese. :P It adds a lot of "ya"s and "nen"s and all sorts of things in there.
That's one of the only things I think Osaka has unique... >.>;

Well, actually that did happen to me when I moved here from 'Bama. :P
I know how you feel.
I've never been out of the Southeast of the USA and I want to go see the world soooooooo bad. Just getting out of this country is a dream of mine, haha. I want to go live in another country, along with that dweam. But everyone hates Americans, so wahhhh.
Lol, I'd love to see Japan or some other country. Japan looks like a cool place, from what I've seen in pictures and Lost in Translation (Lol).

it looked like a rough country. <off topic> When I was 4, my dad brought me back a kimono from there, and I was a Japanese baby for halloween!

*waves* Yeah, come to Osaka! But to be practical, Japan isn't all the kimino/geisha greatness. The people here in Japan are less friendly, more rude, and stare at you if you're a foreigner. Believe me, I get that whenever I'm with my father. Gaijin daaa.... But, yeah - come visit sometime.
I completely understand where you're coming from.
Most people see the anime, go "zomg! i want to live there! its so cool!" to find that they're being mocked. But, looking into the history that Japan and the western world have had, you can sort of see why.
also, Nehong "People of the sun" denotes some of that.
I did a ton of research when i thought i was coming there! xD
Most of us westerners are pretty tall, you can't find shoes that fit easy (usually have to be custom made) and what not. You really have to earn your way, and even then..it'd be commonplace, as you say to be called Gaijin. its amazing what names can be brought up.
I'd be walking on eggshells all the time xD knowing me, of course.
I'd say to anyone reallllly into Japanese culture just from anime, research the modern society first ;) then decide if you want to go still, and whether you can put up with all the awful stuff that comes for being an outsider.
I ahve to say though, from what I've heard, in there being quite a few green places (and the beautiful wilderness! love those shots!) i'd be in heaven. love my green spaces!
