Hey dango, so i assume you know japanese right? (fluently?) I'm looking into learning japanese, so i was hoping i could chat with someone to improve my japanese faster. Is that fine with you? I only know a little, but would like to learn to become fluent.
I know english and chinese, so if there's an interest in either, i could always try to help in return :P.
I did not vote, as I was nowhere near a voting booth I am just happy that the transition is made possible, since a peaceful transition of power is what makes a democracy a democracy. That, and I think the Japanese Diet would need a lot more energy than what they have now.
As for my faith in the new ruling party? I am not too sure, I prefer to sit back and wait. I do like some of its policies, such as a more independent stance on Japanese diplomacy and approach to world affairs.
Furthermore, while I do welcome more women into the realm of Japanese politics, I am reminded that there aren't many women in Japanese politics, and suddenly bringing in a platoon may be a bit difficult to manage. The adjustment would take a while.
