How do I go about meeting a shy japanese girl?
Japan is one of the most xenophobic countries on earth. 98% Japanese.
It won't matter if you learn the language and speak/read it better than they do. It won't matter if you marry a japanese woman/man.
Wouldn't even matter if you have Japanese parents or grandparents. If you're american, you will ALWAYS be a foreigner to them.
Dude this comment was unexpected and made me laugh like a goon
It doesn't matter where you are from if you are not from Japan originally. Doesn't matter if you look Japanese and are not. Even Finnish people like me will always be mistaken as Americans.
No matter how long I will be there, I will always be Gaijin. Think about situation where whatever you do, you will never be one of them, never, ever.
