Who am I?

When I was little, I was always dreaming about getting out of Japan. My dream came true. I went to China to learn Chinese language and luckily I got a job in Hong Kong where I ended up spending almost 10 years.



Currently I live in Canada. And I started blogging in Japanese about my life a couples years ago. And then I started thinking if I could write some English blog...?

Lots of people asked me about Japan and Japanese people.

Japan and their culture, their way of thinking may seem unique or not easy to understand. Honestly I think so, too:)

So I am trying to write just like answering your potential questions.

Hopefully I could give you some tips which might help for understanding about Japan and the people, and you could find more interesting about them.

I have been living outside of Japan for more than 15 years, but I never had a haircut abroad. I always have my haircut in Japan when I go back.

I have thick black hair. After it gets longer, it becomes automatically curly --like snakes. I hadn't had a haircut for almost two years this time. When it got wet after shampooing, it was like wet and twisting heavy seaweed which has just come out from the sea.


I went to the same hair salon which I go to every one or two years. My hairdresser who is a bit of a famous hair designer in my hometown still remembers me. After I sat down in front of the mirror, I said to him,

"Could you cut it boldly, please?"
"Boldly? Are you sure?" he said to me in the mirror.

I said, "Yes, please." He said,
"But you have beautiful wavy hair."
