Hello, I'm Japanese, live in Akita, whose name is famous for the breed of dogs. I studied Zen Buddhism and Japanese classic literature in an university in Tokyo.
I began studying English again to read the books of Raymond Chandler and F.Scott Fitzgerald in the original.I like their Japanese translations.These days, I'm reading "The Great Gatsby" with the English-Japanese dictionary.
One of my hobbies is appreciating Rakugo, a Japanese traditional monologue art, which is performed by only one sitting person.
I also like to listen to the 60's and 70's rock music, especially Psychedelic, Progressive and Canterbury rocks.
To watch movies is one of my hobbies too. I have the strong respects for the movie directors, Sergio Leone, Stanley Kubrick, Andre Tarkovsky, Akira Kurosawa, Kenji Mizoguchi and Yasuziro Ozu. tell the truth...I love Japanese manga and anime very much! I especially read manga for girls and women, which is called "Shojo Manga", even though I'm a man...

I have some very voluminous dictionaries, with which I could help your studying Japanese.They are standard Japanese, basic Japanese, English-Japanese, classic Japanese-classic Chinese, classic Chinese-modern Japanese, classic Japanese-modern Japanese dictionaries.In particular, I have six big dictionaries about kanji (or classic Chinese characters).
Therefore I can answer questions about kanji's meanings or usage (except modern Chinese characters) and the origins of Japanese words in detail.

I'd like to be more friends with you!
