Interview and observation by Japan Today

Interview and observation by Japan Today

Some conversations flow better than others, but interviews often elicit mixes of joy, pain and the mutual laughter of two people relating. Yet, an online viewer gets just a glimpse of these sessions. The main feature of the Hafu2Hafu profiles is just one question the interviewee wants to ask another “hafu.”

The result is this humbling half page article you can read here.
