こんにちはあね! I'm applying for JET, so I'm in the "black in Japan" tag trying to get different experiences. So far, it doesn't look much different than my time in China, so I'll have less of a shock if and when I go, haha.

I only know people who also taught in Korea and Hong Kong also then come to Japan after. I guess there are some subtle differences. Just come in with an open mind ^_^

shota7css asked:

When you applied for job in Japan, Did you specify that the working place was Osaka? or were there another city for choice? 日本で仕事をするときに、はじめから大阪で仕事をしたいと思っていましたか?

I had to choose 3 places I’d like to live and Osaka was one of them. Osaka position was open first so then I came here and I never lived anywhere else since. 大阪は私を選んだw Osaka chose me.

The Wallet Ninja

It seems like the only thing you can’t do with this little helper.. is paying!

BUT aside from this it offers so much more functionality than a credit card. It has the same size as a credit card, so you can easily put it inside your wallet. There’s six Hex wrenches, a can opener, fruit peeler, bottle opener, ruler (standard & metric), letter opener, box opener, phone stand, and eyeglasses, Philips and flathead screwdrivers. It’s made from 4x heat treated steel, and comes with a lifetime guarantee to never rust, bend, dull, or fold up like Circuit City.

GET your own Wallet Ninja ($14.99)

I present to you good people, Sessue Hayakawa, silent film movie stud.
First off, just look at this guy. Yum.
He was a Japanese immigrant and one of the few Asian actors to reach fame in Hollywood. He is actually *the* original heartthrob of cinema, making all the ladies swoon (and it’s not hard to see why).
From wikipedia:


His popularity, sex appeal and extravagant lifestyle (such as hosting wild parties and driving a gold-plated Pierce-Arrow) caused tension within American society resulting in discriminatory stereotypes and the de-sexualizing of Asian men in cinema,as exemplified by the controversial I.Y. Yunioshi character in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Refusing to adopt negative stereotypes he decided to leave Hollywood and moved into European cinema where he was treated equally. Hayakawa’s friendship with fellow actors would see him return to Hollywood once again, although to this day few Asian actors have ever had the chance to play a respectable lead role in an American film.He was one of the highest paid stars of his time; making $5,000 a week in 1915, and $2 million a year through his own production company during the 1920s. He starred in over 80 movies and has two films in the U.S. National Film Registry.

When I saw this article from takepart  about Black &SexyTv I got really excited, because their show are the TRUTH! And I wish some of them would make it on tv. These show are everything B.E.T needs.

Black and Sexy TV was founded by four filmmakers—Numa Perrier, Dennis Dortch, Jeanine Daniels, and Brian Ali-Harding—in 2011 and takes its name from Dortch’s 2008 feature, A Good Day to Be Black and Sexy, which showed at the Sundance Film Festival. Though the channel began with just one program, it has grown to include six: The Couple, Hello Cupid, That Guy, Roomieloverfriends, The Number, andYellow. The series are each distinct but are grounded by a through line of authentic black experience, especially regarding love and sex.

Here’s a list of show from YouTube not all from Black&SexyTv you should check out when you got time.
