About

I’m a half Japanese/half Italian Australian (hence the blog name ‘Japalian’) who loves everything about Japan. From those little Japanese food erasers to Mt Fuji – I love it all! And I’ve realised that there are others out there who love Japan just as much as me.

In short ,this blog will share my inspirations, experiences and thoughts about anything Japanese. Language, restaurants, fun facts, travels, culture and customs…I want to create a space where other Nippon fans can connect with each other and where the curious ones can get to know a little bit more about The Land of The Rising Sun.

I hope you enjoy reading the blog as much as I enjoy writing it! Feel free to send me an email to japalianblog@gmail.com if you have any special topics that you want to know more about :)

  1. Hi there! I’m Italian and I love both Japan and Australia, so I guess your blog really fits me! 😉

    • Wow! Thank you for passing on the Liebster Award to me 🙂 I have been so busy lately that I haven’t had much time to blog but will definitely write up a post about the award and some more news soon. Thanks again and I’m really happy you enjoy my blog. 🙂

  2. Hey there! I’m really enjoying your blog! I’m also a half Japanese Aussie, but my other half is Australian hehe. I’m living in Tokyo atm and also blogging about life here. 😀

    • Hi! Nice to meet you 🙂 Wow…how’s living in Tokyo compared to Australia? Are you loving it? Funny because ‘living in Japan’ is one of my life goals too 🙂

      Sorry for the late reply btw, I just started full-time work and have not had any time to write in my blog for a while 😦 I hope to update it VERY SOON! Thanks for stopping by and I’m glad you like it. I like your posts too 🙂

      • No worries! Congrats on the new job, then!
        I am absolutely LOVING being in Tokyo. I love Australia, but there are just so many things, little and big, that make Japan awesome. So were u born and raised in Aus? Do u speak Japanese and Italian, too? Sorry, I always so curious when I meet other halfies 🙂

      • Sorry about the late reply! I was born in Japan but was raised in Aus. What about you? No unfortunately I don’t speak Italian 😦 How is Japan? Are you working there?

  3. こんにちわ!I’m neither Japanese, nor Italian, but a practicing Muslimah and hijabi in love with Japan and learning the language! I’ve nailed kana and am working on Kanji, any suggestions for the best and quickest way to accomplish this, I’m open to it and appreciative! よろしく おながい します!

    • こんにちは that’s great that you’re learning Japanese! I recently did the JLPT N3 test and had to learn a whole load of kanji. For me I find using flash cards the best way to memorise how to read it the kanji. I would just try focusing on learning maybe 10-15 kanji at a time so that you can really spend time learning each one. What I also find really interesting and enjoyable when learning kanji is understanding what each part of the kanji means. For example if you see 心 which means heart in another kanji like 感じる (meaning to feel) you can start to recognise what the character might mean. Hope that helps! I think my next post will be about this topic so thank you for visiting my blog and inspiring me 🙂
