    Hi My name’s Grace. I’m really glad our class is getting to do this thank you for all the photos! I also travel around the world a lot but not japan. Have you traveled any where else other than japan? I would love to hear all about it. We saw the photo of your friends eating with chopsticks. I myself could never get a hang of it. Is it hard for you to? Any ways I cant wait to hear back from you. bye!

    Hello! I’m Bebe. I love Japan and look forward to learning about their culture!

  4. Simon says:

    I’ve been to subway stations in Paris and Singapore and they are crowded but usually aren’t as crowded as the ones in Tokyo. When I was young I wasn’t very good at using chopsticks, but after being forced to and grounded (like not allowed to eat or play) for using a fork, I eventually learned how to use it at around 8.

  5. Sam says:

    Hello! My name is Sam! I’ve been to Korea which I think is quite similar! Everything’s crowded and bustling with activity! I’ve never been to a Korean subway though. I’ve also have been to Tokyo, but just the airport. It’s very big and has lots of people too! I can use chopsticks to pick up a lot of things, such as a dumpling or a grain of rice. Do Japanese wrap their rice in seaweed like Koreans? Post some more stuff! I can’t wait!

    Hi. I am a big fan of eating with chopsticks. My mom and I go out for sushi in Seaside about 4 times a year. What does the sushi taste like over there? I have wanted to travel to Tokyo ever since I was little and watched Teen Titans. How was the sumo match?

  7. Zeno says:

    Hello, Josh. I’m Zeno, and it’s nice to meet you! I was wondering if you could show us a video of Carrot Tower. Also, have you seen anybody playing video games as they walk along the street? There are some AWESOME video games there that came out on June 23, so I thought people might play them as they walk.

    • harutheperson says:

      Morning- Ohayo Gozaimas おはようございます
      Afternoon- Konnichiwa こんにちわ
      evening/night- Konbanwaこんばんわ

  9. Meredith says:

    Hija! I’m Meredith! Nice to meet’chya!
    I, like Bebe, am interested in the japanese culture and have dreamed of living there! I also like anime. My current ones are Squid Girl, Shugo Chara, Chi’s new home-Chi’s new address, Poyopoyo, One Piece, and Pok’emon. Maybe check them out if you have free time(I recomend them by the order they are in, squid girl being the one I recomend most.).

  10. Ders says:

    Hi, I’m Anders, but I would prefer if most of you would call me Ders. I got the name of Ders at a summer camp this year, and I like it. I really want to learn about Japan and its culture. I also want to know what it is like to live in Tokyo. It sounds really interesting. How fast do you think most of the trains are?

  11. gluue says:

    Hi, i’m Max. When i was little (5 years old) i was obsessed with japan, i wanted to live there, i wanted to adopt a Japanese kid and more that i don’t want to say. But, I forgot some of the stuff i learned so I want to learn about japan culture and more about japan.

  12. Noah says:

    Yo, I’m Noah. I’m a person, like everyone else reading this is. Japan is cool.

  13. Rebecca says:

    I too am a person, that is a female Homo Sapiens Sapiens, of rather high intelligence. most people say that is arrogance, but which is worth, arrogance or lying?

  14. Edil says:

    Hi, i’m Edil. I’ve always wanted to visit Japan and i’m looking forward to learning more about it!

  15. Jeffrey says:

    Hi ,I’m Jeffrey I hope to learn a lot about Japan just like every one else.
