I was Born in Sapporo, Japan. I was raised there in Japan, I lived in Sapporo for about 6 or 7 years, 1 year in Ibaraki, And 12 Years in Tokyo. I would not trade those experiences for anything! I LOVE Japan. I believe that the Japanese have pulled ahead in many areas of life. There almost Ant like culture is all about getting things done and bettering the country and becoming the greatest.
