About me and this blog…
European married with children in Japan.
Welcome to my blog about anything Japan-related, life in Japan, being a twin mother, random talk about beauty products and Disney – a weird mix of my hobbies.
I’m 26 years old, I have a bachelor degree in Japanese and I’ve been married to a Japanese since April 2011 and together we have two identical twin girls born October 28th 2014, who will be raised to speak both Japanese and Danish.
I decided to create this blog to focus on a subject that really occupies my everyday life.: “Understanding Japanese”. Which doesn’t just mean the Japanese language, but also the Japanese people, because no matter how you look at it, European and Japanese are very different.
I wish to convey the funny little things that make us different and maybe even the bigger arguments. All little steps towards being able to understand Japan and Japanese people better… because one thing is to love Japan and “think” you know everything… another thing is how our own culture affects us and makes the process of understanding more difficult.
There’ll probably also be a lot of talk about being a twin mother and raising children here in Japan.
