That's Mark from California, not Canada btw! I found this site through Google when searching for some other information. Seems like this site is new and I love getting involved with new sites. Not often is there a new English based site about Japan though. To be honest up front, I usually hang around at Gaijin Pot but I have grown overly tired of the advertisements and spam bots. NOt to mention the sensoring and attitudes of some of the folks over there. There are number of helpful people, but you really have to dig under the mud to get there. Well - I have a number of things to add here and I hope this will be a fun experience. Yoroshiku!
