I saw the question about piercings but what about for guys?
Can guys have piercings like normal ear piercings at school? How about at work?
Unfortunately, unless it's a pretty liberal workplace or a clothing store where it fits the vibe, I'm going to say no. Guys with piercings have the image of being wild which is the opposite of...
What's a Japanese hobby I can try at home?
I'm getting bored.
Do you mean traditionally Japanese? How about calligraphy? You can find videos on youtube. or you can practice on an ipad.
Why is Kimetsu no Yaiba so popular?
My students cannot stop talking about it.
I could write you an essay. But to keep it short, the art is beautiful, the characters are really deep and you want to root for them, and the story is simple but exciting. It comes across as a typical...
When is the last day to send out nengajyo?
I'm sending them for the first time this year and I'm nervous...
My sensei told me that the best way is to time it so the person receives it by the 3rd of January for it to be a proper New Year's greeting. I would think by the 28th of December to be safest. But...
Who are the top artists this year?
I'm skeptical about the most played Japanese music on Spotify overseas list.
Yeah those were mostly anime songs. I would say LiSA, Yonezu Kenshi, Official Hige Dandism.
Are there ethnic neighborhoods in Tokyo?
Wondering if and how that works.
Yes for sure! Shinokubo is like Koreatown. Takadanobaba has many ethnic restaurants and is called Little Yangon. And while not in Tokyo, Yokohama's Chinatown is not that far away.
Why is Snoopy so popular here?
I see him everywhere. Recently at Uniqlo for a collab. I'm just wondering how it got so popular in Japan when it's such a distinctly American comic.
Japan loves cute things. Honestly that's the only direct reason I can think of. But there's so many great characters in Peanuts so that might be it too. And there's so many goods that can ...
Do you have to buy souvenirs/omiyage for your coworkers?
I'm going on a trip but I'm not sure if it's mandatory.
What's the omiyage culture at your workplace? Do you get omiyage from your coworkers? And did you tell your coworkers you were going on the trip? If the answer is yes, then you probably should if ...
Do you think Halloween will still happen in Shibuya?
Wondering if it'll be on the news like past years
With the current situation, maybe nah. It'll be on the news either way - either to say people aren't there like usual or to say look how many people showed up anyway.
Currently popular artists/songs?
I want to listen to more Japanese music for listening practice. Also good music is good music
Based on what my students like, Yoasobi, Official Hige Dandism, Yonezu Kenshi, Arashi, LiSA, Nogizaka46. This is all jpop though.
