Welcome to Just My Japan!

Finally, after talking about it for so long, I have opened a site that will be dedicated to my writing about aspects of Japanese culture and society that are not related to food. For a longer explanation of what I plan to write about here, please see the About page.

This site, as well as my other sites (which are also re-revving up their engines) will mainly be supported by patrons via Patreon. My reasoning behind this is on the main Patreon page. Please consider becoming a patron, so that I can continue to bring you more in-depth articles about Japan!

A page of links

This is the page where I link to things that I mention on social media and so forth. It is updated regularly.

For a general how-to for shopping for things from Japanese sites, please refer to my Big Shopping Guide.

10 Japanese slang terms you may want to know

Here's another installment in the Fairly Useless Japanese series, about some slang words that you may see bandied about. I've tried to exclude terms that seem to be too trendy and fly-by-night, or too specific to a certain age group. Basically these are terms and phrases that even I (an obasan) know. They may give you a bit of insight into the world of Japanese social media too.
