Call me Traveler. Welcome to my new site.

What's it about?

I'm a US citizen with 20+ years behind me living in Japan and speaking Japanese. It's about time I laid out some info for fellow (and future) learners of the language and transplants to the country.

At the same time, I have lots to say on the messy and ugly topic of "cultural differences". No, there's nothing wrong with that topic in theory, but the actual conversations that one hears are towering monuments of nonsense. Time to set some things straight.

I've seen similar. What's different about this site?

Simple: A lot of my assertions about living in Japan, learning the language, and "cultural differences" in general don't mesh with what's generally accepted (and repeated, and repeated, and...). You'll see some different viewpoints here.

Why "homejapan"?

It's a domain I've been hanging on to for some time. Other domains I considered for the site weren't available, so homejapan will do! (Though I don't think I have much to say about homes or housing.)
