Sorry tor the tardiness of this comp but I had parent conferences this week which is very time consuming and drains my precious life energy. My favorite this year was the mother who laughed hysterically when I told her that her son would benefit from encouragement and help studying from his parents. Jesus take the wheel......

Thanks, OP.
Although….I should warn people that Harajuku really isn't as popular for cosplay people anymore. (I have lived in the center of Harajuku for the past 6 months)

Occasionally you might see some Lolita girls walking on ********* street- but cosplay people no longer meet up here on sundays in crowds like they used too. (the only people I see doing that are maybe 5, bitchy (and i don't know why but they always are) white kids. Oh-I did see some people in bumper cars driving around dressed up as Mario and the Gang on Omatosando street a couple of days ago though!
(also. I don't think anyone is going to judge you for dressing up in tokyo though. wear whatever is you're heart's delight. maybe go to Akihabara too.)

OP forgot one fashion style that is/was popular (ish). There are several stores on Harajuku that are for "B-stylers"
"B-stylers is contraction of the words "Black" and "Lifestyle" that refers to a subculture of young Japanese people who admire American hip-hop culture so much that they do everything in their power to look as "black" as possible"

What markets do you shop at?! O.O Ive havent seen them yet (at the Tokyo Foodshow in Shibuya) and my japanese friends say that is because they are luxury melons….

Do you pay for them in yen or desu. How many desus does one cost?
User avatar #70 to #67 - bizengaust (07/12/2014) [-]
you pay for them in yen and they are around 10,000 yen each. That's about $82 American currency. I just stick to regular watermelons

User avatar #166 to #162 - bestfoxgirl (07/12/2014) [-]
Good job, maybe someday you will get to the level of you're students
(my big tittied mommy senpai changed 'you're' and 'your', that little...)

I cringed too hard on the last one, couldn't bring myself to say a word

just between you and me though, your not really a teacher, right?
#170 to #166 - bizengaust (07/12/2014) [-]
I am. Not a grammar teacher though as that's a different class. Writing and speaking are always taught apart in Japan. There are a TON of different writing characters and to be able to convert them to english takes someone who has mastered all the Kanji. I have not gotten that far into Kanji yet.
I teach words and phrases such as "hello. How are you? What's the weather like today?" I make sure they say it right and grammar teachers make sure you spell it right. I could take more night classes to become both but.....yeah Kanji is complicated. I hope this eases you're doubt and can build a better relationship between us. seriously I have no beef with you? I think you're very bright.
#210 to #170 - bestfoxgirl (07/13/2014) [-]
All right then, I must admit that I didn't know that there are two separate classes for writing an speaking.

According to this, I think I owe you an apology. Or more like, I might have been a bit too harsh. Rigorous, more like.

Don't get the wrong Idea, I still think that a person who teaches a language should be able to speak it flawlessly and I don't think that it's a 100% good excuse. I just realized that my behavior wasn't perfect either.

On a side note, I can't help but notice how idiotic that system is. Writing and speaking should be considered as one, consistent matter. That's the way I learnt the language, I never had separate classes just for speaking or just for writing. I think it creates more problems for students. That's why I didn't even think of a possibility of such an illogical system being introduced anywhere, let alone in a country which puts so much stress on education.
#213 to #210 - bizengaust (07/13/2014) [-]
I feel you. Truth be told I was really taken aback when I learned that they where different classes. Even in Russia our alphabet is pretty complex they are always taught together. The more time I spent around the kanji system though the more I began to understand. Children start learning it from when they start school until they finish up in Junior high. With that in mind imagine learning that all in a span of a few years. It also translates differently into english just like russian does. our speech is a lot more simplified so you have to have them taught apart or the classes would be twice as long.
I know my grammar should be better and I actually do go to night classes twice a week to improve both my English Grammar and my Kanji knowledge so I don't have to rely on microsoft words spell check.
We good?
#218 to #213 - bestfoxgirl (07/16/2014) [-]
Well, I don't really see the point of dividing it into separate classes instead of just teaching them both parts at the same time. The progress might be slower, but at least they would understand something from it. If I were to learn a language by getting to know these parts separately, I wouldn't understand a tiny bit of it, except for repeating some learnt by heart sentences.   
   
Well, if you don't hold any kind of grudge against me, I can say that we good. Sorry.

It's complicated and I guess kanji has this huge deeper meaning then just spelling out things.  I could seriously write a novel about it. It's some complicated junk  I don't hold grudges so your good in my book   grudges tire me out too much. Requires too much energy.

just google Gyaruo, the male equivalent of ganguro.

Ganguro appears to be almost dead now, though. Gyaru is still kind of a big thing, but it's a lot more subtle and normal, like these girls.
Don't ask about the picture, I literally have no idea.

No, these are Gyaru. The male equivalent is Gyaruo. Ganguro is an extreme version of Gyaru.

They're more like weeaboos of jersey shore culture which is really messed up when you think about it.

OP is a retard for not listing the fact that this type of porongraphy is normally used in attempts to evade japanese censor laws when they were first put into effect.

The censoring is weird, like in Mirai Nikki someone gets stabbed all the way through the chest with a sword and they censor only the entry hole of the sword and not the exit, I hope it's not something like "the rules say censor the point of penetration".

These are pretty interesting, I like seeing Japan explained from a perspective I'm familiar with. Keep it up!   
And I've got a question I've been curious about. How is anime and manga viewed by their society. As in, is it considered to be something only for high school kids or are there shows specifically made for the family or parents or whatever?

I really don't get why the USA and some parts of the UK still not invented the "Bidet", isn't it more cost effective than paper towels?
When I talk to US friends about bidet they think i'm some kind of neat freak, do you guys not wash you're asshole?

A japanese girl (half-japanese, fine, half-german too, but she grew up in japan and only moved here last year) got into my class this year. It's really interesting to see her. She is defiently out of the ordinary with what she first started to wear (Dress pants, dress shirt and a pink tie is what she wore on one day, which was one of the most outstanding you could say), and she's even got a lolita dress. Her parents also have got an café. The cakes look delicious.
