This is a disclaimer intended for the next following entries

This is a German blog intended for a German audience, and thus I originally wrote all the following entries in German. But then I remembered how I, especially when I was forced to decide on leaving or staying (or trying to stay) in Japan, yawned for true experience reports of foreigners that stayed in Japan for a longer period of time. Thus English it is, to broaden the potential audience. And moreover, everyone from kaigai speaks English anyway, right? [1]

Another disclaimer: After writing all this up, I noticed how negative it might sound. It’s not meant to be. It’s just a sum-up of my own personal experiences and impressions. I love Japan. And I hate Japan. My relation to Japan is like with a tragic love; you broke up but with her, since apparently there is no way you can really handle all her frickin‘ issues in everyday life. And yet you continue to be friends, deep down still having feelings, unrequited feelings of true love that is, and in one moment you curse her for all her craziness, only to flip over in the next moment, and, in admiration of her elegance and sheer beauty, descend in self regrets over ever splitting up with her in the first place.

Yup. That pretty much sums it up.

[1] You probably didn’t know, but there are actually only three (kinds of) countries in the world: The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Also known as Japan, China and Korea, and the kaigai.
