Information (English)


Howdy stranger, welcome to Semi Random Thoughts in Japan(ese), where I just rant about Japan, Japanese and stuff I know. I by no means claim to be an expert nor a Japanese person, so any stuff poured into this blog is just my opinion and does not claim to be truth. I am just in for a bit of fun and work on those non-fiction writing skills.

Sometimes I talk about things related to Japan in the section Japan outside Japan: events, festivals, food… I love to try “Japanese” products that have made their way into mainstream shops, and going to Japanese restaurants. I sniff through the museums to find pieces of Japanese art to share here.

My actual Japanese skills suck, though I am working my way to a survival level. I am hooked on yakuza news. I listen to male-voices J-Pop, J-Rock and… whatever X Japan is filed under at the moment. You can see my collection over at JVault or find out what I was up to in Japan when I was there in JBinnacle .

As you can see, this blog is written both in English and Spanish, although one day it might even have some posts in Japanese… Dreaming is free…
