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.

See, I can't think of anyone I have ever met that has had heirlooms of any kind. The only time I can think of people inheriting things like that are farming families that inherit the land and such, which isn't really the same thing at all.

There's a much stronger focus on independence than unity, which leads to the "you can be anything" mindset of most people, the natural consequence of that is nobody expects you to follow in the footsteps of your parents or even live near them, and nobody will judge you in fact, many would praise you for moving out and being on your own and getting as far away from them as possible.

I've considered moving to Japan someday on the point of all the traditions alone, simply because the sheer amount of choice and, indeed, freedom here can be overwhelming. I think I would like the change of pace."

That said, I have a question for you if you don't mind. Why did you leave Russia in the first place anyway?

I was gonna make a new comment, however I decided that I'll just butt in here because this is what I wanna talk about.

While I appreciate the "live and let live" attitude of the States, since, you know, I live there I have always longed in a way for the.. established nature of tradition in places like Japan. You always know where you stand and what you should do, and since the "rules" require you to be respectful it seems like it breeds a more respectful society, but I've never been there and in fact have never spoken to a Japanese person so I can't really say that for sure. MUH ANIMEH UGUU~ at least gives that impression.

In turn, the very free nature of the States almost seems too free in a lot of ways, while it's good to be able to relax you find a lot of people's lives lack structure due to the absence of established etiquette. Though I may not be seeing it all since I've always lived this way.
User avatar #71 - bizengaust (07/22/2014) [-]
I feel you. I think if I had grown up in a free place I'd long for tradition to. I'd also be lying if I said those traditions didn't bother me sometimes. I mean I come from a place where your parents and grandparents feelings can be the deciding factor on whether you and your fiance will be married. Traditions keep a sense of order in people but at the same time I feel that we should be able to make choices. In Russia I would be urged to be a stay at home mother and even if I chose a career it wouldn't be anything great. But in the states I had so many chances to be anything. I think there is a time and place for tradition. My family even has heirloom jewelry. Mine is a bracelet which I will eventually pass down to my first daughter

Your welcome Japan sounds nicer and nicer every time I hear something new about it.

Truthfully, I'd like to go visit Russia, and in High School I wanted to get into a class teaching Russian, but all they had was German, Spanish, French, and I think Greek. But I don't think I'll be going there anytime soon because of all the terrible things and rumors that are around and about. I hope everything will simmer down soon though, the last thing everyone needs is another conflict, or worse, war.

I used to get it every so often as a little kid when my father would come back from Japan on a business trip, because he saw little kids enjoying it and thought of me once, and for some reason I just loved it.

I've heard melon bread is good, don't know about curry bread.

I want to go to Japan someday, study abroad in tokeyo university for a semester or two, but I can't afford the costs of living there, as far as I know Japanese colleges don't typically have dorms, maybe they do but only for special instances at a pretty big price. I've studied Japanese culture and I know I can afford the tuition and get in (on a whim in high school I took the entrance exam online and made it in) to the PEAK program. But again... an apartment plus food charges and the ticket would be too much.

It might just be a vacation destination. Which would be nice since I do want to go to Okinawa and visit the shinto shrine that's on one of the yen notes...
User avatar #338 - bizengaust (07/22/2014) [-]
Very few have dorms yes which is why many students save for an apartment or simply stay with their families. living with your family is actually very normal Staying in a host home is also an option if you travel abroad

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.

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.
