I would like to introduce The Japan Rants. I’m going to start by saying that I am a Japan lover. Always have been and always will be. My posts, are meant to be a source of entertainment, and perhaps give a person or two something to relate to. Japan is a country just like any other, and along with this there is good and bad. We can only enjoy our lives by accepting both of these in the place we choose to live. And the day that you find that you are unable to balance the good with the bad in Japan, is the day you should probably leave the country.
Some of my posts will be just for laughs, and some will be a little deeper.
As the site is just getting started, I welcome and encourage comments and feedback of any kind~
So without further adieu, I would like to introduce you to my first 5 posts:
1. Japanese Gold Diggers
The title might lead you to think its about women… but its not!
2. Japanese People and Spatial Awareness
This post gets into the hidden danger of Walking around Tokyo and the complete and utter lack/disregard Japanese people in this city tend to have for the people and objects around them.
3. The Little Pervert
I had to stop this post part-way through… A story of a 14 year old boy who tried to sexually harass a girl on the train right in front of my very eyes. The real kicker: The train wasn’t even crowded…
4. N0 ID? No Problem! Its Japan!
Have you ever been ID’d in Japan? If you have, chances are they were just messing with ya~
5. Why I No Longer Help People In Tokyo
A little story about one of the events that lead me to believe its better just to stay out of things while in Tokyo.
I have spent weeks thinking over when and how to release the site. My biggest concern has been that I constantly have new examples, anecdotes, and media that I would love to add.
So, I will protect myself right from the start by saying: There Will Be Updates!
Each of the original 5 posts are starting points. And I can only hope that you stick around and grow with us~
