日本心: True Feelings on True Japan

日本心 (nihonshin), coming from the Japanese words 日本 (nihon) meaning "Japan" and 本心 (honshin) meaning "true feelings", is about honest opinions about life in Japan from my American perspective. It goes beyond the arrogance and delusions of many foreigners in Japan with ideas of "conquering Japan" or "becoming truly Japanese". Also meant as a positive space for those interested in coming to Japan to study or work.

Loco in Yokohama

I started this blog to rant and rave about my life in Japan but it has unexpectedly turned into something else. Its become an opportunity to explore my thoughts and feelings about life as an ex-pat in in the land of all that is cute and small. Im a native New Yorker (Brooklynite) and a writer. I have been living here for nearly 5 years and finally I feel like talking about it. And I have a lot to say, so some of the posts may be a little lengthy. I know were all supposed to have short-attention spans these days but I dont and I dont do brevity well. However, I do my very best to keep my posts concise and thorough, real and interesting. Which is more important than brief, dont you think? This is not your typical journal about the foreigners experience here. Ive read most of them and theyre mostly pretty happy-go-lucky written by people who are having the most wonderful experiences of their lives. I am not one of them. Maybe if I came from the countryside or something, but Im a New Yorker. I guess growing up in NY has spoiled me. Got some of that snobbery of being a product of the greatest city on Earth, and what-not. But, God help me, I do love Japan.

My experiences in Japan might or might not apply to other girls if they live here, but I am just documenting ones that I have.
