No friends :/ I used to have relatives that i visited , i revisited them after the Tsunami happened and they all became real different. Then , my ties with a lot of them just simply fell out. I wish i had friends from Japan , so this aspect is definetly missing from my life.
Annabel, I have well over 20 plus close friends whom I’ve known for over 40 years!!
Annabel I have 8 Great Hafu friends living in Japan from the Kanto area to Okinawa
Dear Annabel, I am what we call In the USA an Air Force Brat. My father is an American that served with the
US Air Force. He met my mother, who is Japanese, back in the late 1950’s, when he was stationed in Japan.
Growing up, we were always moving from place to place. I think because of that, I was able to make friends
everywhere we were. When dad retired, we returned to Tokyo. I finished my schooling there. I had many American, international, and Japanese friends. I love who and what I am, and although it was not always easy, I would never want
be anyone else! Be proud, Annabel!
