1. How old are you?
32

2. Have you ever been to Japan?
Yes.

3. If you answer yes to question 2, how many times?
I have entered the country about 9 times.

4. If you answer yes to question 2, what is the longest duration you've stayed in Japan for?
Longest duration without leaving would only be about 1 year, however I have been a resident here for more than 5 years, and have spent about 6 1/2 years of my life in total here.

5. Which one is your favourite city?
Probably Hiroshima, i find it quite amazing, alive, and yet unsettling at the same time.

7. What attracts you?
To Japan I assume?? Initially my curiosity about Japan started around the same time I discovered Super Mario Bros, and many other video games as a kid. I did not have a real desire to come here though until I had started taking a few elective Japanese classes in college however.

8. If you only have one day to visit Japan, which city would you want to visit? And Why?
Shizuoka, it has the most sentimental value for me.
