Raising Bilingual Kids

My Japanese wife and I have given a special gift to our children, making sure they grew up bilingual in both English and Japanese so they didn't have to suffer through the verb conjugations and kanji memorization that we both had endure. Of course, a child's language acquisition is made somewhat more complex by the fact that they must separate the two languages in their brains as they learn. When my son was very small, he would engage in wordplay with me, telling me the cold-water bath at the hot springs we'd just visited was "cold-katta," attaching the Japanese past tense ending to the English adjective, which was a lot of fun. Things could get confusing, too, like when my son asked me why Americans put "chopsticks" on their lips (he meant Chapstick), or the time I asked him to pick up his clothes so he promptly closed the door ("close" and "clothes" are the bane of ESL learners). Once he asked me why Nicholas Cage only made detective movies -- it turns out that "Cage" has the same pronunciation as keiji, Japanese for police detective, and he thought every movie the actor had done was part of a series of police films.


My son was confused by the words "chopsticks" and "Chapstick."

Ghosts and Japan

I often write about the kokumin-sei or "national character" of the Japanese. By and large they're a harmonious people, preferring to get along without unpleasant confrontations in their daily lives, and they're especially good at gaman, that is, stoically enduring unpleasant situations without complaint. The Japanese can also be quite superstitious, and many believe actively in ghosts and related supernatural phenomena. Every few weeks it seems there's a TV special exampling photographs with strange flares in them, or videos sent in by viewers of children talking with mysterious reflections in the TV screen, or shows in which popular male idols like Arashi are asked to sleep in a haunted house while viewers watch through hidden cameras. I'm not sure why the Japanese are so open to believing in the occult. Maybe it has to do with the tradition of youkai, a pantheon of Japanese "folk ghosts" like Hanako of the Toilet, the ghost of a girl who inhabits the fourth stall on the fourth floor of the girl's bathroom, or Akaname, a spirit who comes into homes with dirty bathtubs, used by parents to get their children to clean the tubs more diligently. (And if you like a good scare, I recommend the new horror anime-and-manga Another.)


The Japanese are big fans of ghost lore.

The History of Naughty Tentacles and Harem Anime

Because of the popularity of anime and manga, certain aspects of Japan's popular culture have spread across the globe, and I could travel to countries like Russia or South Africa or Peru and find like-minded fans with whom I could discuss my favorite character designers or doujinshi artists. However, it might surprise you to learn that many of the themes and memes in anime aren't new at all. Due to the popularity of certain hentai videos in the 1990s more than a few people might think of Tentacle Grape style "naughty tentacles" when they think of modern Japan, but this particular fantasy is much older, being based on an illustration called The Dream of the Fishman's Wife by Hokusai, pretty much the most famous ukiyoe artist ever, created in 1814. The next time you hear an anime fan complain that every show these days is a "harem" anime, with a lucky male main character surrounded by multiple cute girls fawning over him, you can smile. It turns out that the "harem" tradition goes way back, to the 1000-year-old Tale of Genji, the story of a playboy prince during the Heian Period who has more romantic encounters than Makoto from School Days.


Harem anime series are part of a 1000 year old tradition.

J-List Close-out T-shirt Sale

J-List loves to make unique kanji and anime T-shirts, like the new Touhou "Bad Apple" shirt we've just released. But there's one problem: since we have so many shirts and hoodies, we can't make new ones until we close out some of our existing designs. So we decided to have a really big sale on our close-out Japanese T-shirts to give everyone a reason to take some off our hands. We've got our epic Highschool of the Dead shirts up, our "neat" tribute to Hikikomori, our Beware Panty Thieves and more. Lots of shirts for girls and hoodies, too, especially in size S and 2XL. Prices starting at $9.95, with the full 15% discount for 3-or-more shirts in place, too. Thanks in advance for helping us get rid of these close-out items!

Fun on Trains in Japan

One of the more enjoyable aspects of getting used to life in Japan, at least coming from California, is the train culture. Trains run everywhere here, and they're very convenient to ride, especially in this era of always-on Internet connectivity through iPads and cell phones. While people living in J-List's home prefecture of Gunma probably need a car to get around conveniently, it's not difficult at all to live in Tokyo without one. The most famous train line in Japan is probably the Yamanote line (yama-no-teh, lit. "mountain's hand"), the loop line that goes around the Tokyo area, which takes you to convenient places like Shinjuku, Shibuya and Akihabara and is almost the only train you need to go most places in the city. Since the train travels in an endless circle, you never reach the end of the line, and there are drinking games college students and gaijin play as they pass through each of the 29 stations. Today we got in some rather cool towels featuring the iconic signs of the Yamanote train line!


Pretty much the most convenient train line in Japan.

Gaijin Criticizing Japan

No country is without problems, and the list of challenges Japan faces in the 21st century is certainly not short. Sometimes we foreign expats in Japan take it upon ourselves to point out the things we perceive as being "wrong" with the country, something I've been known to do in my J-List updates, for example taking the government to task for massive construction projects like the Shinkansen bullet train to Hokkaido or the building of new universities despite the coming drop in the Japanese population. To be sure, foreigners pointing out Japan's faults can go too far: there's a book called Dogs and Demons in which longtime Japan resident Alex Kerr lays out every problem he sees with the country, which was so depressing to read I had to take breaks between the chapters. Still, the desire to not be viewed in a negative light by its foreign community can be a powerful agent for change, like when Japan was finally embarrassed into passing a law requiring the use of child safety seats in the 1990s, or home smoke detectors a few years later. One area I'm regularly concerned about is the lack of "entrepreneurial spirit" by the average Japanese, who are much less likely to seek interesting business opportunities than people in the U.S., China or South Korea, and it'd be great to see the government do more to support start-ups and small businesses.
So what do you think the biggest problems in Japan are?


There's a lack of "entrepreneurial spirit" in Japan..

A Fun New Anime: Inu x Boku SS

It's fun to observe the way visual memes move from one anime series to the next, always evolving and changing in interesting ways. One anime I'm watching this season is Inu x Boku SS (pronounced Inu-Boku Secret Service), a show about a girl who is half-human, half-youkai (Japanese magical spirit), watched over by a "Secret Service" (a full-time bodyguard) who she starts to feel affection for. The show is a treasure trove of contemporary anime memes which were often invented by other shows but adapted and built on by this series, including the hawt tsundere with the "Absolute Zone" stockings-and-skirt fashion, a nosebleed-prone yuri comic relief character, and the dashing fox-spirit bodyguard with mismatched color eyes. (Incidentally, we carry many interesting manga series on J-List including Inu x Boku SS, as well as epic anime magazines like Megami and NyanType, loaded with free posters from currently-running shows.)


Inu x Boku is filled with delicious visual memes.
