Angers me, less now but depends on the person and day.
I have taken the time and effort AND courage to speak in Japanese but English comes back, blood boils.
Of course the same could be said about the Japanese who reply in English but at least show manners to answer in Japanese, if we hit a roadblock in the conversation and feel you can continue in English then do so.
Posted in: How do you feel when you speak fluent or reasonably good Japanese to a Japanese person and they insist on answering you in English?

The only reason I go to Starbucks is because its on my way home, can comfortable use my laptop and its kinda cheap but it is bad coffee. But coffee at smaller shops is always better including those smokey old kissatens.
Coffee here will never be as good as back home.

Question: If the train was moving how did he get out of the train? Trains have an amazing technology called DOORS, if they are closed you cant get out.

Posted in: There are many types of work, such as supporting refugees, that cannot be done unless we actually visit the countries that need help. We're worried that more people will shy away from going to Middle Eastern countries (because of this incident).
