Making Out In Japanese

Category: A + Japanese Dating,Japan EntertainmentIchiban @ 11:41 am

These books are getting old now but still worth the cheap price to brush up and learn the vital pick-up lines.
The first (white) book was first published a long long time ago and a lot of the phrases in that are most probably out of date but the 2nd revised edition is probably still a good cheap, fun read.


But if you want a book written by a Japanese person that is probably better than the two comedies above… this one is a pretty good alternative.

Japan Ichiban’s Friends Network = Love + Marriage + 2 Children = Lots of Happiness!!

Grant, Sydney, Australia/ Satoko, Japan

In a nutshell that is our continuing success story! And we owe it all to Japan Ichiban’s Friends Network. Satoko and I met in Tokyo through Japan Ichiban’s Friends Network right back in 2003 when it was all just starting up, and wow it has changed our lives! Japan Ichiban’s Friends Network was spot on in helping us find each other because one thing led to another and 6 months later in the middle of 2004 we both find ourselves pointing towards mainland Asia as we depart Japan together for an overland trip from Japan to Europe and back to Australia.A year later we land in Sydney where we now live the idyllic quintessential Australian lifestyle with our little son ‘Lotus” who was a gift from an ashram in India during our travels 🙂 Yes that is where he was made ha-ha. Lotus was made in India, Japanese mother, British father and was born in Australia; how lucky to have three passports and ultimately he owes it all to Japan Ichiban’s Friends Network. If that wasn’t enough, next week we look forward to welcoming Lotus’ baby sister into the growing World of Friends – WOW! Thanks Japan Ichiban’s Friends Network!It all started with you! Lots of Love, Grant,Satoko,Lotus&??? Anyone out there have any great ideas for our coming daughter’s name?More success stories to read here:

Ryo Ishikawa rumored to become a father.

Category: A + Japanese Dating,Japan RelatedIchiban @ 10:59 am

On the night of the final day of the President’s Cup Ishikwa’s home in Japan’s driveway was packed with cars. No doubt his girlfriend was in there celebrating Ryo’s great run against Bubba Watson with friends and family.

Were they also making wedding plans?

From NineMSM article:
Young Japanese golf superstar Ryo Ishikawa’s mystery girlfriend will remain anonymous for a little longer.

Ishikawa, 20, was planning to reveal his sweetheart to the world at this week’s Presidents Cup in Melbourne, but she is not coming after all, amid strong rumours that she is pregnant.

“He feels it would be too overwhelming for her to travel given the reaction to the news,” said a source who asked not to be identified.

“Apparently he has been swamped (by the media) since they found out.”

Rumours have been rampant on the Japan Tour recently that Ishikawa’s girlfriend is pregnant.

Ishikawa no doubt will be asked to confirm or deny them when he speaks to the media in Melbourne this week.

He is used to an astonishing level of scrutiny – more even than Tiger Woods – but the revelation last month that he has a steady girlfriend, believed to be a high school sweetheart, has caused a media frenzy.

It’s been no secret in golf circles for a couple of years, but Ishikawa has never introduced her publicly, and has declined to talk about the matter when questioned.

But his mother spilled the beans last month, issuing a statement that said: “There exists a woman whom Ryo Ishikawa is going out with.”

Ishikawa made history when he won a Japan Tour event at the age of 15 – the youngest winner ever on any internationally recognised tour.

And last year he created more history when he shot an astonishing final round 58 – the lowest score on a major tour – to win another Japanese event.

He has won nine tournaments at home, although none internationally.

His best showing in a big overseas tournament has been a tie for fourth at the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio in August.

With his youthful good looks, aggressive game and super polite behaviour, Ishikawa is a marketer’s dream.

He reportedly has commercial deals worth more than $40 million.

Kago Ai Suicide Attempt

Category: A + Japanese Dating,J-pop,Japan News,Japan RelatedIchiban @ 2:53 am

On September 11th, former Morning Musume member Kago Ai (23) was found on the floor in her apartment by her agency officials.

According to the Azabu Police, Kago had slit her wrist and was quickly transported to a hospital. Her life is not in danger.

Kago’s agency officials immediately rushed over to her apartment when she hinted suicide during a phone call. When they got there, they found her on the ground in a haze, and reported the incident to the police. She’s suspected of consuming large amounts of medication, and the police are investigating this as a planned suicide.

On September 6th, Kago’s boyfriend Ando Haruhiko (44) was arrested due to mafia affiliations. Kago Ai herself was taken in for questioning.

Kago’s actions were no doubt triggered by last Tuesday’s arrest of her 44-year-old boyfriend Ando Haruhiko on charges of attempted extortion. Kago was present at the time and also subjected to police questioning. Ando describes himself as the director of a restaurant business but is allegedly running something closer to a prostitution ring for elite Tokyo businessmen and celebrities. He has been charged with using his connections with the Yamaguchigumi, Japan’s most notorious yakuza organization, to get out of debts totaling some ¥20 million. Police are in the middle of a coordinated campaign to sever ties between organized crime and showbiz. Exposed relations with the Yamaguchigumi is what recently forced top star Shimada Shinsuke (55) to retire.

Police officials state she had slit her wrists and taken a lot of medication but that her life is not in danger and she’s expected to make a full physical recovery.

African Husband & Japanese Wife

Category: A + Japanese DatingIchiban @ 5:04 am

A brief summary: He came to Japan from Mali when he was 19-years-old. He started out working at a hip hop clothing store in Harajuku, but now that hes 37-year-olds and have a family to support, hes working for a construction company. He wakes up at 5AM and works all day from Monday to Saturday each week. He met his wife 13 years ago. When asked what she liked about her husband, the wife says she likes black men, citing their style and musical ability as good points. She even says that she sometimes wishes she had been black instead of Japanese. Her parents opposed their marriage, apparently due to a belief that foreigner equals criminal. It would seem that despite the husbands efforts to be friendly with her folks, the marriage is still frowned upon. Because of this their household exists in isolation of any extended family. Having 5 sons and 1 daughter along with a house loan to pay off forces them to live on a tight budget. Even with so many small children, the wife must work a part-time job. Everyone in the household helps in the preparation of dinner, which often includes imported meats considered permissible under Islam. The family also eats a variety of African-style dishes prepared by the husband, such as the catfish stew shown in the video. One of their children, Mohammed, is actually the son of the husbands brother, whom they adopted when the childs father died. Mohammed has only been in Japan one year, but he is quickly learning Japanese and trying his best to adapt to life outside of Mali. Mohammed spends each day at school being tutored in the Japanese language by a volunteer teacher. Hes also working hard at mathematics and karate, which he can do relatively well regardless of language difficulties. The report ends with a celebration of the 11th anniversary of their marriage. The husband gives his wife a present: wedding rings. Up until that point, they had been married without any rings.
