  1. What do I love about Japan? hmmmm!! There are lots of things I like about Japan…First of all I always loved anime and manga since I was only 4 and still do!! :yay: Secondly as time passed I began to take an interest in their culture, fashion and traditions. I totally love Harajuku!!! It is my dream that someday I will be able to visit Japan!! However I have to wait until I am able to do that! You see I am always talking about Japan to a certain extent that my mum is annoyed now. I usually tell her ‘Mum I want to go to Japan!’ and her answer is ‘Honey, do what you want after I die’ 😥 So yeah I am kinda forbidden of visiting Japan T____T But I will someday!! Gambarimasu!!! *determined*

    I also like places like Kyoto. Japan has very interesting places to visit!!! I also love their food especially noodles…I think I am a noodles-holic!! :heart: As a matter of fact I frequently go to have dinner in Japanese restaurants available here. I also love their calligraphy and language…I am learning all by myself…I even bought phrase books!!! I also love origami!!! When I have time I just create stuff with paper!!! ^^ :kawaii:

    As I said before I am totally a huge fan of anime and manga and I even draw them myself. Last year I want to the Malta Comic con and I cosplayed as well!! It was awesomeee!!! Will definitely do again this year!!! so looking forward :yay:

    Actually, I haven’t been in Japan yet but hey! it is one of my dream to go there. Okay, what love about Japan is their food, fashion, toys, gadgets and a lot more. As what I have seen over the internet, Japan is one of the beautiful place to go. There are so many tourist spot as well that they can take pictures and have it as a souvenir. I love kawaii stuffs even from the smallest to a bigger one like I want to buy them all but I guess I’ll be broke after 😛

  3. I love so many things about Japan but here are just a few things that have happened recently that have made me smile and laugh. Seeing a guy dressed as Wally from Where’s Wally just wandering around Shibuya, restaurants like Lock Up (and no one bats an eyelid), creative people and fashion everywhere you look. Never a boring moment!

    I love Japan’s ability to bring people together! Be it because we share a love for its fashion, its food, its pop culture, it’s history… There are so many different aspects of Japan that a lot of people love, giving us all something in common we can share and bond over. So thank you for letting me meet so many amazing people, Japan! :yehey:

    Let’s just say that before I discover this blog of yours, I really don’t find Japan an “interesting” country. I mean, okay technology, okay anime but duuuh?? So what????
    That’s what I thought about Japan before.
    But when I discover your blog Ate Kaila.
    This blog give me butterflies. It makes my eyes drool. It made me go crazy and gaga about Japan..
    From you favorite favorite which is Pocky, to the kawaii clothes that made me REALLY REALLY SUPER DUPERLICIOUS INSANE… to the bags,,,,,, the camera…………. Rilakkuma…………… ALL AS IN ALL.
    Ate Kaila. If ever you are reading this now, I wanna thank you so much because you have been a very big influence in my life now. Before I am only a shy girl, a not so industrious one. But because of you, I started to pursue because I want to go to Japan someday…
    I’m not being so corny here but that is the truth, I swear.. You are one of my biggest inspiration.. I’m always checking your blag like twenty-four seven or whenever I’m online… I’m always looking at the tiniest details of each of your picture…
    Because through you, I feel like I’m in Japan.
    Through you, it seems like my dreams are possible…
    Through you, my life had been change..
    And through you, you made my life more productive and much much more meaningful.

    I’m so sorry If I answer you question in this way..
    It’s not the prize that I’m thinking by the way.. It’s how I can express me gratitude to you.
    Thank you ate Kaila. Mahal kita(P.S Im a girl) hahhaha :heart: muaaah

    :heart: What do you love most about Japan? :heart:

    Just like most people, I got to know Japan from the entertainment; anime, manga, j-music, dorama, etc. Many that I’ve encountered make me feel happy and amazed, send me pondering, and/or give warm feelings in my heart.

    Through all the years I found out; they inspire changes, they show how strong the influence of dreams.

    Like ‘Tetsuwan Atom’, who inspired the advancement of robotics in Japan. The author, Osamu Tezuka, showed his dream future world, and it inspired robotics engineers who were once children watching Atom on television.
    Or the more recent ‘Hikaru no Go’ that can make children and teenagers interested enough in a traditional game like ‘go’ to enroll in ‘go’ clubs and classes.

    Japan reminds me of the power of ideas and dreams, something that I hold dear in my heart to keep moving forward :cute:

    What do you love most about Japan?
    I love Japan Because I love Anime and some other stuff.

    The Anime I love the Most is One Piece.
    One Piece is the no.1 anime in Japan right now!!!
    I think every person in Japan(or in the other country) always watch this anime because the story is soooooooooooooooooooo COOL AND AWESOME. the graphics and animation are sooooooooooooooooooooooooo unique that it catches every persons eye to watch it.

    My Second Favorite Anime is Fairy Tail
    Fairy Tail is soooooooooooo Magical and SUPERNATURAL.
    I’m Team with Natsu X Lucy, Gray X Juvia, Mirajane X Freed and Ezra X Jelal. The Story is also so awesome because they share the true meaning of friendship and teamwork.

    What I also Love in more in Japan:

    Mostly like Festivals like summer Festivals and everything. Festivals are so Beautiful. they also have different booths and performances like fireworks. also i love the booth with the fishing. and I also wanted to wear kimonos in festivals.

    Cherry Blossom season blooming.
    i wanna watch the cherry blossom viewing in Japan Because Cherry Blossoms only bloom once a year (I think) IN Japan.
    So I wanna have my first cherry blossom viewing in Japan wearing Kimono and having a picnic with friends

    Harajuku Fashion.
    I think this Fashion is soooooooooo KAWAII,AWESOME AND CREATIVE.Japanese people really loves mixing fashion styles. that’s why when I’m already in Japan, I will wear HARAJUKU once a week 😀

    Shibuya. I researched about this place.it says that this place is soooooooooooo filled with fashion.I really wanna go in there because I love Japanese Fashion.

    after thinking or a while…. I can say that the one that i love most about Japan is the language. well, as a cosplayer of course I love Japanese manga and anime but the languange is just hngggggggggggggg ♥
    Im not the type of person who likes to study, so its utterly unusual to find me studying xD but Japanese intrigued me
    i dont know i find it utterly cute and everything asjfhdakf
    it keeps me excited to find/ learn a new word in which i would go bleh if its in another language
    I experienced speaking to a Japanese lady for the first time about 3 months ago in an interview for a student exchange program to Kishiwada and it was so much fun!!! we talk a lot in Japanese and she also compliments on how good my Japanese is, god I was beyond happy that time and remembering the other interviewee back then, they were dazed by two of us speaking japanese xD their faces were priceless XDDD
    i submit my application for that program because i want to speak/ and learn more Japanese also the culture there with the host family and classmates there. I mean, speaking in Japanese really made my happy ♥
    The interview went good, but that doesnt mean that i was chosen though, i was frustrated considering that i was really the only one who could speak Japanese on the group and i was super confident that i would be chosen at the end is not even on the list.
    *sigh* osoraku its because i dont have enough service hours on my high school -_- damn ;___;
    I kinda regret that i dont really do community service work now considering that i would get a chance to practice speaking there ;_; but at the same time, mad, i mean they picked people who only wants student exchange name in their college application over me who would know Japan and its whole better than them, (so there was this girl who being asked by the people there (they were having some kinda quiz) who is the japanese girlband that is really popular now in Japan and then she answered SNSD. and not even shoujo jidai gee, youre mistaken about Kpop and Jpop girl -_- )
    omg i just realized that I was rambling this much asdfds akan yaaaaa
    so yea, that was it and one last thing that i want to tell is that im currently in love with Kansai ben ♥ (btw thats also why i picked the osaka one —and also uh remembering kishiwada ==)

    and im not putting the details here cause i think i would be spamming here but you get the idea on how much i love it ♥

    and excuse my writing. im not good at writing xD

    What do I love most about Japan? Is it possible to say EVERYTHING?? HAHA!

    I grew up with anime, watching Card Captor Sakura and UFO Baby — Hoping to someday, (though this might sound weird and crazy) rollerblade under a path of sakura trees(mind you that I have no idea how to ride in rollerskates!!). I love their culture, their language (proud to be studying Nihongo right now!! + I’m the iinchou of our class hihi), their food, Japanese fashion, THE BOYS (shout-out to the JE boys!!) and everything else, really. I also love how the people are so honest there (they say that you can leave something in one place and go back there the next day finding it still there). My relatives would tell me all these amazing stories of their trip to Japan and though I am honestly jealous of them, I’m happy that I’ve kind of “experienced” Japan through their stories.

    Oh and if I was given only one thing to describe to show my love for Japan — I’d say their FABRICSSS(haha hi Ate Kaila!!). I’ve ALWAYS dreamed of going to Nippori (with Ate Kaila) someday and we’d splurge on all the fabrics and DIY stuff Japan offers. I love to sew — which is why I ‘d love to go to Japan and buy fabrics and cry because of all the beautiful fabrics and all. I love how Japanese people are so creative and no one judges each others’ style. I’d love to dress-up in Japan without any doubt whatsoever. Japanese Fashion is the best and I’m currently trying to adapt to it here in the Philippines (though I’ll be expecting a lot of judgmental looks from people haha).

    Japan was never “some other country” to me — I’ve always thought that, though I’ve never been to the country, that it was somehow “home” for me as well. I’ve spent almost half of my life (literally) loving every single bit of Japan and I’ve always hoped and dreamed of someday riding an airplane, going all teary-eyed because I’m finally going to one of the most amazing places ever, and arriving their with flying colors (and of course, butterflies in my stomach).

    So, good… I think it’ll be a little bit difficult to me to explain, maybe because I’m Italian, or probably because my love (for Japan) is so deep and strong, I mean… the people, the culture, the colour, the life, with all the lights and the shadows. The freedom, the open mind, something I couldn’t ever feel here, actually I know, I’m not so explicit, maybe, but suddenly I cry for all this, my tears of joy, of course is because of the love for Japan. Maybe someone think I’m a fool, a silly little girl, I don’t care… Sometime, because of this feeling I’m been sad and moody, because I’m never went there, I hope in the future I’ll do. :heart:

    What I love about Japan…

    How Japan can be such an amazing, beautiful country filled with so many different people. The music is so different to western music and is so much better too! Especially the weird videos 😀 I love how the Japanese can be so adorable and sweet, and yet still get embarrassed at little things. I adore the clothes so much (I recently bought a proper Haori which I ADORE) and they are so much better than our clothes!! And then you have food, like POCKY! 😀 And the language too, it’s so amazing.

    I love how Japan is so varied and yet so brilliant with the things they do. It is definitely my favourite country, and I envy those who get to go there and live there! I could go on forever about how much I love Japan but I’ll stop here 😛 I think the best way to explain how much I love Japan is this :kawaii: :yay:

    I love the unique fashions that are derived from Japan. Despite not being Japanese myself, I also find myself constantly amazed by the way the Japanese interpret, re-interpret, and create fashion and art. The youth culture in Japan is vibrant, attractive, and most of all, FUN. It cultivates so many great artists of every field, and combined with the hard work ethic of Japanese, creates fashion and beauty unrivaled by any other place in the world.

    What do you love most about Japan?

    When I was a kid, I remember that instead of Disney movies or fairy tales I would be watching ANIME (Sailor moon) :starru: , Henshin-ing with the Kamen Riders and Sentai heroes before I even know they were called such :what: and reading books (such a sad fact that I was able to read the story of Little Mermaid before seeing the Disney adaptation) such was the start of my childhood :evill: . I remember correcting my friends if they did the pose wrong lol :nod: . But really, as I was growing up I got exposed to the Japanese culture more when my parents enrolled me in a Japanese school, so I spent my elementary years studying there and it was the place where I discovered the idea of minimalism, of bonsai :kawaii: , of kimonos :yehey: , of yukatas, of sushi, of takoyaki, and everything else in between. Growing up in such an environment, I saw how much the Japanese took care of the environment, how polite they are, how passionate they were (heck my first Japanese teacher was around 80-years old, he would bring his cassette with tobacco on hand and we’d listen to some old Japanese music in his class) :woww: and 2 years later I would learn that what they did was voluntary. :nod: They were teaching Japanese to students in different parts of the world. 😥 My love for the country and its citizen just increased more. :hug: As I a young child I’d always listen to Japanese music not that I understand any of it. :heart:
    But objectively putting it in words, Japan is a discipline country. In spite of a lot of disaster, the citizen remains calm and collected. I love the idea of garbage segregation. :hihihi: 3Rs!! <3 <3 The food are also in moderation, I mean not too salty (salt is really bad for your health, so please take it in moderation nee!) :lulz: . Also, they are really innovative when it comes to their gadgets while of course staying ergonomically stylish :love: . Ahh~ I have a deep relationship with chairs, tables and cabinets (any furniture for that matter) :kiss: I can stare at them for hours just admiring their design, and how ergonomic they are. I also love the European’s design but I think or maybe I am just plainly biased that the Japanese have the most stylish, simple and ergonomic designs. :fly:
    Ahh, the colorful history of Japan tainted with blood, sweat, tears and happiness. If I could I’d like to time travel to Meiji era and watch silently the lives of the Japanese at that time. I want to see Samurai and Geisha tachi~
    Japanese art, fashion and everything else in between, I admit a really love cute things. I cannot resist them, they are calling for me and I think when you visit Japan you will go deaf because there is too much kawaiiness! FUWAAAA~ *dies in the corner coz of kawaiiness* I love how Japanese seem really fashionable even if they just wear something that they hurriedly grab off the closet, maybe it just becomes in grained as they grow up to be fashionable (not saying that everyone is (haven’t gone to Japan yet) but most of the Japanese I saw that is).
    *drinks Green Tea* Ahh~ Ghibli Animation! Kyoto! Osaka! Tokyo! Hokkaido! Digimon *digimon kid here*! AKIHABARA!
    I can go on and on and on talking but I know there are so much that you have to read, looking at how the scroll bar is getting shoter! <3 <3 <3 Like what I have said before! Kaila, do continue to write! <3 <3 <3 Congratulations on your new endeavors! <3 <3 <3 Banzai!! <3

    Japan is a creative country from anime to fashion to technology and all sort! But mostly, I love how they could freely express their artistry~ Most Japanese people aren’t afraid of what people would think about them. They’re not afraid to try. And that’s why I love their sense of fahion. It’s very kawaii and random most of the time =))) It’s like they can incorporate anything to it..

    Ever since, I’ve been a really big addict to anything :kawaii: :3 And so.. I’d really love to go their someday hihi
    I also love their culture and how they act. Japan is a place where I can find most of the stuff that would amaze. Ever since I was young I’ve been really amazed by anime and japanese fashion. I’ve also attended a couple of cosplay events hoping to be an anime character for a day 🙂 I’m overjoyed to see others create theses amazing cartoons~ I love how Japanese people are cute without even trying :3 I’d also definitely love the place~ and cherry blossoms hahaha

    Of course I love my country, the Philippines.. but another country I adore so much is Japan~ :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
