Hi, I just stumbled upon your journal and I just wanted to drop you a comment to let you know how fascinating it is. I'd like to go to Japan myself, but there is that pesky language barrier. I've really enjoyed looking through your past entries and look forward to seeing more!
Do you think I could get around with very little knowledge of the language, then? I'm trying to learn on my own, and I don't seem to be doing so well, haha. I can say one or two things, and the only kanji I could recognize won't help me much. (Such as "no".) I really do want to go! When I was in elementary school, I did all of my projects on Japan, and became very interested in the country. I'd definitely visit Tokyo!I don't really watch much anime, a few every now and again. It's music that I really love, mostly rock and metal from various Japanese bands. I am a huge fangirl though! The mind boggles at all of the cds and things you can probably find there that we can't get imported, or would be very expensive here. If I did go to Japan, I'd come back very, very broke.
