Are Japanese people nice? : Two Japanese men arrested in Cambodia for murder of a taxi driver

March 17th in 2019, two young Japanese men were arrested in Siem Reap province. When I read this news, I thought that Japanese guys were killed, but it was not.

According to several medias, both of them used to be members of
self-defense force of Japan. They were trying to steal the car for a money-changer robbery, and then killed the driver.

They planned it in Japan, because they are in debt of 4 million yen, 36,000 US dollars. They decided to come to Cambodia, where US dollars are used frequently.

Japanese people reaction 

Cambodia and Japan have had a reasonably good relationship. On the Cambodian currency note, there is a bridge with a Japan flag which was built by Japanese support.

There are lots of Japanese people living in Cambodia. Among them, some people started donation to supports the taxi driver’s family.

Why did I start writing on "Medium"

A couple of months ago, I started writing in English which is my second language. I posted some blog articles on this platform "Blogger" which is one of my favourite blogging services. But I started writing on "Medium" two weeks ago.

Now I just want to write down why I started writing there, not here, and also where I am going to write in the future.

What does "Kawaii" mean? Why do people love "Kawaii" things?

"Kawaii" is one of the most commonly used Japanese words. When you hear conversations of Japanese people, you must spot it more than once.

"Kawaii" originally means "cute", supposed to be used when they are describing something small or little, such as a baby, a small animal, etc. However, it is more than that now.

Where I came from and Where I am going

I was a child who spent lots of time daydreaming. My parent’s house was built in the middle of rice fields. It was a little far from the main town in a rural area in Japan. Because I didn’t have any friends living nearby, I was always alone in the garden where the strong aroma of gardenias made me feel dizzy.
