My name is Anya, I'm 24 years young and I'm currently working as an English language instructor for an elementary school in Osaka Japan. Before anyone asks my life is nothing like an anime, except for the school girls. Everything you've heard is real.

i should've wrote this in but he also said a lot of westerners (see: davido kun) go to japan because of the anime and culture. In real life it's nothing what they expect
User avatar #33 - bizengaust (06/18/2014) [-]
I've actually worked with a few people like that and they didn't last very long due to the culture shock hitting them harder then they expected. I'm serious when I say that it looks like something died inside of them when they realize it's nothing like what they built it up to be in their heads. Research before you go anywhere a good thing.

What about certain social etiquette like women not being able to open their mouth's wide. I also heard women showing cleavage is frowned upon but skirt length isn't. I'm Also curious as to whether women are trying to changes these or are just accepting of them. I ask seeing as Feminism is a hot topic of the internet and I am under the impression that women might have it worse in Japan than America.
User avatar #25 - bizengaust (06/18/2014) [-]
Woman are still expected to be ladies here so things like a loud voice,rude manners,can really make people think less of you. I've never understood the whole, "don't show your boobs but leg is ok" thing myself really. Woman are trying very much for changes here even now. They want the freedom to act like normal people without being deemed social garbage if they don't fit into the stereotypical view of what woman should be. They want to be able to dress casually at work without their professionalism being taken into question and they want to be able to act like people instead of robots.

As a guy how really want too move to japan in the future, these comps are fucking awesome, thank you.

Also have you got any pointers as to how too do that? (Keeping in mind I'm 17 and only know Japanese from the anime I watch.)
User avatar #309 - bizengaust (06/19/2014) [-]
I'd recommend doing some research about the culture as it is very different from what anime portrays

So wait, are you trying to tell me that all 14 year olds don't have breasts as large as my head?
#323 - twilightdusk (06/19/2014) [-]
It's actually kind of ironic, so many anime characters have giant breasts but Japanese girls trend on the smaller side.
User avatar #326 - gamagoriira (06/19/2014) [-]
I know, I was just joking. I looked it up when I first started watching anime, and I wasnt surprised. I mean, naturally, most men are attracted to larger breasts. But if you are surrounded by washboards, you are gonna dream about larger breasts.

Hey dunno if you know but there is this thing on the internet somewhere very similar to your experiences called "I am a japanese schoolteacher" about a Black guy from cali whose was part of the JET program and his general experiences which range from daww to WTF. Dunno if its on the internet somewhere but i thought you should know
#104 - bizengaust (06/19/2014) [-]
Oh yes The Gaijin Chronicles!!! I know of him very well and I remember reading about him before I came to Japan. It was actually his posts that made me choose the company Amity over JET. I really got both insight and chuckles from his posts. JET isn't bad by any means, they just only allow you to renew your contract so many times whereas Amity lets you do it for as long as it pleases you.

Really love your comps, randompersonontheinternet

Just wanted to say that. Yea.

Based on your comps I'd be pretty much ****** in japan because they seem to be the ******* opposite of germany.
#30 to #29 - bizengaust (13 hours ago) [-]
Yes they are very different. You're from Germany? I spent a summer going around there when I was out of college. I went around Munich and Berlin. It was very lovely  also I love you're beer halls

こんにちは, random Japan-interested anon here. I really liked you're comps about Japan and I was wondering about something. When I went to Osaka 2 years ago, I was really shocked that there were hardly any free wi-fi spots anywhere (which doubled when I found out there weren't any at McDonalds or Starbucks either). Did you have a similar reaction when you first moved to Japan?

P.S. Could you include vending machines in a future comp? I'm still a little confused as to why they seemed to have one at every block.
#27 to #25 - bizengaust (07/15/2014) [-]
I was at first yes, especially in the cities where you'd think it would be all over the place. The reason for this though is because they have special wi fi cafes where people can go and use computers or a wi fi connection. They are pretty much cyber cafes. They also have book shops like this to. I plan on working the weird vending machines into a comp in the future. I just want to get enough photos of them together first.

Spice and Wolf / OP №1 (Nika Lenina & Ancord Russian Version)
#19 to #16 - bizengaust (06/27/2014) [-]
I will officially be downloading that song onto my Ipod. I do know some anime but not a lot I have a very limited knowledge but my students make sure to teach me what is popular. I read a lot of manga though when I was learning about Japanese culture in college though. Kaori Yuki is my favorite mangaka of all time. she did the Count Cain saga,Godchild,Angel Sanctuary,ect.
User avatar #20 to #19 - accidented (06/27/2014) [-]
Unfortunately I do less manga and more anime. Glad you enjoy'd some of NLenina's song. She does lots of opening covers, feel free to check out any other stuff. Thanks for the wonderful facts again! Will you do a part 2?

They can if you make it obvious that's why your there. Even if you do like anime you have to be very modest about it. It would be like going to England and assuming everyone likes doctor who as much as you do.
