Looking for a movie title. Japanese movie, 1990s, two women stuck in a maze, sci-fi.

Evening all,

As the title suggests, I am looking for a movie from the 90s, I believe.

I am pretty sure it was a Japanese movie, with two women stuck in a maze. There is a large demon or robot hunting them. I remember being impressed by it, but I can't remember for the life of me what is was called.

Also, the demo/robot would transport in and out of the maze.

All of my memories of this movie could be wildly off, it was a long time ago.

Thanks for helping!

What is it like learning Japanese as a native English speaker?

They say that learning Japanese is really hard as a native English speaker, so what's the hard parts?

Is pronouncing it hard? Is understanding it the hard part? Is writing it difficult? Are there any easy parts to learning it?

Online Japanese Bachelor's Degree

Hey there!

I'm looking to become a Japanese to English translator, and I'm really interested in joining the JET Program to advance my language studies. The problem I've run into is that JET requires a bachelor's degree, and I only have an associate's.

The bachelor's degree can be in anything according to JET, but I would prefer it to be in Japanese since that's what I'm wanting to learn and I don't want to do something unrelated. There are plenty of colleges that offer Japanese majors on campus, but I'm specifically looking for a degree that can be complete online. I've searched on my own and couldn't find much, so I was wondering if anyone knew of an online Japanese bachelor's degree.

Thanks so much!

What are some good Japanese TV shows can I easily access and watch?

Iโ€™m a 4th year Japanese student and I feel like I know a lot about dictionary words and reading but I have a disgustingly untrained ear when it comes to conversation. My teacher told me that how she learned English when she moved to America was watching English talk shows and the like, stuff with lots of conversation and dialogue. The Tonight Show etc. Does anybody have any suggestions for good Japanese talk shows like this, preferably with a slower or more rural dialect? (Tokyo dialect is way too fast for me) Just throw out some names, Im not picky, Iโ€™d really appreciate it

I think we should have a daily reminder to practice Japanese for beginners in this subreddit.

I think it's a good idea to motivate newbies to keep on learning as the worst thing I think for newbies is to have them feel that they're lonely when learning Japanese at home, leading them to do other stuff and procrastinate not doing Japanese. Like an inspirational practice and we have people offering to help others learn through maybe just doing an online session in discord and talking and being mostly social. I know this subreddit is overall things for Japan I think but this is the most popular subreddit and the smaller ones are not nearly as active as this one that are more catered to learning specifically Japanese. So I just think it's a thought.

Opinions on going back to school to study Japanese?

Hi. This might not be the place to post this, but I really appreciate the members of this community and wanted to fish for opinions.

TL;DR I have a computer science degree, am dissatisfied with where I am in life, and would love to wind up working in localization for Japanese video games / media / etc. Would it be worth it to go back to school for a second bachelor's degree, to start myself on that track?

I'm in a rough spot in my life. I have a bachelor's degree in computer science, but don't love programming, and have been in and out of work for two years. I quit my last "big boy job" when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, because I wanted to focus on providing care and being with her for the end of her life. Now I'm 24 and am struggling to find motivation to get back into the software industry.

In those two years, however, I've learned I really love the Japanese language and culture, and keep circling around to the idea of one day working in localization. Working with people who

Has any complete foreigner tried to study in Japanese High School before?

I found a resource and a loophole in the necessities but i dont have the ability to confirm the possiblity myself. There's a thing for foreign students residing in Japan to enroll in public high school but the only requirement i cant meet is with a parent and my father refuses to move along with me and my mother has passed. If anyone else has tried this, is it possible to get a homestay instead? My father has mentioned it would be alright for me to go if i found a reasonable homestay and a school that would accept me, however i do not reside in Japan yet and cannot confirm with the staff myself.

Has anyone learned Japanese after learning Chinese?

I've been learning Chinese for the past few years and have gotten to the point where I'm pretty much just grinding vocabulary, so I figured why not go ahead and start Japanese?

The thing is, I'm actually wondering if learning Japanese might be a bit easier than Chinese for me! Learning Chinese -- especially at the beginning -- was HELL, because there are no cognates or loanwords from English, and of course I had to learn all of the hanzi. But now, looking through lists of Japanese vocabulary, I already see dozens of English AND Chinese loanwords, and I already know the meanings of nearly every kanji I come across.

I haven't looked to much into grammar, but there do seem to be some superficial similarities there as well. I know of course that Japanese grammar has many striking differences, but for example the usage of a question particle is right out of a Chinese textbook, and so far ใฎ seems to mirror the Chinese particle ็š„ exactly.

I also have zero difficulty hearing and reproducin

This sub needs more non-standard Japanese. Youโ€™ve heard of Kansai-ben, but hereโ€™s Sanuki-ben!

Probably the most famous bit of Sanuki-ben (the dialect spoken in Kagawa prefecture, is:

ใ“ใ‚“ใใ‚“ใ‹ใ‹ใ‚“๏ผŸใ€€ใ‹ใ‹ใ‚“ใใ‚“ใ“ใ‚“๏ผ Two brothers are talking about exchanging new yearโ€™s cards and one claims to not write any because he doesnโ€™t receive any. The brother asserts that itโ€™s the other way around: he doesnโ€™t get any because he doesnโ€™t write any.

In standard Japanese:

Where can I find Japanese like western fast food in NYC?

I know this question might not fit here. But since some of you might live in NYC and look for these types of food, I do want to get a bit of time to figure out here.

During my stay in Japan, I've had the best kind of western food than in the west (LoL) probably loaded with seafood. Especially at Japanese fast-food chains such as Mos burger and 7-11, I found the most unique to grab such as Shrimp-o fillet, corn/clam chowder, croquettes, guratan, spagetti with mentaiko, napolitan, white cream sauce with seafood and more interestingly Sandosss.

When I asked my Japanese friends about those recipes, I was told in general that using soy sauce and butter, replacing American mayo with kewpie mayo would transform into that. Since I don't have time cooking but need a store conveniently grab that food in NYC, I would appreciate give me recommendations if you know the place.

Not sure if this is the correct sub to ask this, but I have a question regarding Japanese music. More specifically Japanese lyrics.

When listening to Japanese songs, I can rarely hear any rhyming scheme if the lyrics are in Japanese. And many of them have a changing number of syllables sung in a line.

In western culture, the last words of a line usually rhyme with the last word of another line and syllables often follow a certain unchanging beat.

So my question is: Are there any rules Japanese songwriters follow? Does anyone know?

How to make Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki/Japanese home cooking is always cheap

Hi, my name is Hiroshi, a 28-year-old guy, living Tokyo. I got many offers to make a video to show how to make Okonomiyaki, and finally created it!

Okonomiyaki is a savory Japanese style pancake and itโ€™s mostly divided into two styles: Osaka style and Hiroshima style.

The Osaka style uses a variety of ingredients, including shredded cabbage, flour and eggs. They are all mixed up and cook them all together. In the Hiroshima-style, on the other hand, ingredients are loaded on the flour mixture.

I personally prefer the Hiroshima style to the Osaka one even though I originally come from Osaka. Please just try it out! Itโ€™s easy and healthy.

Hi everyone. I will try to explain my situation. So Im a first year uni student and Im studying Japanese. I really slacked off on the first semester and now want to catch up but I realised that Im REALLY far behind compared to the rest of the class. This course is very fast paced, so if you slack off even a little bit you are screwed haha. Our Japanese level is supposed to be N5 by now but I dont feel like Im even close. I really want to continue this course but if I dont manage to catch up Im screwed. So if anyone has any tips on how to cram as much Japanese grammar and vocab as fast as possible it would be really appreciated.

How to start learning Japanese?

Japanese has always seemed like a dragon on top of a mountain. This language is extremely difficult. You have to learn Hiragana and Katakana, which are at least 46 characters each, and then you have to learn Kanji, an alphabet with thousands upon thousands of characters and some can even have different meaning. It seems impossible, but Iโ€™d like to give it a shot. How do you even begin?

Japanese name convention

So I'm not necessarily sure if this even makes sense, or is something worth even bringing up but here goes.

I'm of Japanese decent, and although I hold citizenship in Japan, I've lived in the States for the majority of my life, and I'm sure to all parties involved (myself included) I am considered American. And although I hold citizenship I would likely consider myself Nisei as I did move to the states at a young enough age to where I identify much more as American as I do Japanese, where as my parents are definitely much more Japanese.

Now whenever I read or see someone's name reported in the news or in an article about someone who has the same "status" as I do, generally I always see their name reported in katakana, and given in the western order "first name" then "last name." This seems to be true regardless of whether or not their names have western or eastern origin, so both "John Suzuki" or "Yuto Suzuki." So this got me wondering if the reason that katakana is used here becau

Favorite Japanese gifts

My husband has been studying Japanese for a couple of years now. In the past, I've gotten him gifts to help him study and some general japanese cultural items. Example I made him a omamori once, ive gotten him some Campus notebooks, and a tanuki sake set.

I'm out of ideas... What are some neat Japanese related items you have received in the past?

What american products do Japanese people like that are appropriate for a gift?

Good day reddit

I hope this type of post isn't frown upon. But to keep it simple, i have a penpal that i have been exchanging letters with for a while now. His birthday is coming up so i am wondering what i could send him from america that he would like. i am just not familiar with Japanese culture apart from the details my friend shared with me through his letters.

So my question is: What items or products do Japanese people like from American that i can send to my friend as a gift?

Edit: Thank you for all the responses! I never expected this much help honestly and it blows me away. I have a general idea of what to send him now, so thank you everyone!

Tips for learning Japanese (more specifically dealing with new characters!)

Hey,

I have an interest in learning Japanese, obviously, but I'm quite terrified by the alphabet, characters, writing etc.... which has turned me off learning it in the past, but a sudden burst of confidence has me wanting to pursue it for real this time. On top of Duolingo/Memrise/Consuming Japanese content, what would one recommend for starting out with a language like this and new characters, as a complete and utter beginner.

Also, any general advice that can be offered is great! However, I don't need pronunciation stuff really at this point, since I'm just starting out, I'm billungual, (Spanish, English) and Spanish pronunciation is shockingly similar to Japanese. (basically my accent is semi-decent, and I sound like a stupid Spanish person and not a stupid American, which is a plus).

Anyway, thanks in advance!

Pick up Japanese again?

Hello! Iโ€™m a high schooler who spent 3 years learning Japanese (4 if you count a year of intro and culture class) and this last year I had to give it up due to school scheduling issues. I feel like Iโ€™ve forgotten a bit but sometimes Iโ€™ll help friends who are beginning Japanese figure out sentences and found I have a decent foundation still!! I really donโ€™t wanna give it up because the college I want to go to requires you to study senior year abroad and I really want to go to Japan! So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions, given that I have a decent foundation and a few years under my belt, would you suggest I pay for a class or should I begin to self study? If you recommend self studying, what are some materials youโ€™d suggest I invest in? I will be taking An ASL and Earth science class over the summer so I would prefer to self study, but if many have found classes work out better then Iโ€™ll take a class! Thank you for reading and responding!!

It was def in a hospital setting i think she worked as a nurse. I think the name was something like Murisan or something similar. It was on a NY chanel, channel 25. If anyone knows what it is, I would be so grateful ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Japanese home cooking is always cheap!!/ How to make Gyoza(้คƒๅญ)

Hi my name is Hiro, a 28 year-old-guy, living in Tokyo.

I want more people to know about Japan, so start a YouTube account.

Today, my wife and I made Japanese Gyoza. Gyoza is originally made in China, but Japanese people changed it to suit Japanese taste over the years. As side dishes, Fried rice and Rice vermicelli soup are prepared. Anyways, I recently purchased the shotgun microphone. It enhanced the quality of sound dramatically. Please put on earbuds and enjoy the comfortable cooking sound.

What are some examples of song lyrics exemplifying a Japanese attitude, mindset, or perspective?

I have two examples from songs by my favourite band, ZARD.

In Oh My Love, there is a line at the end of the first verse that goes

> ใ‚ใชใŸใฏ็งใฎๅๅ‰ ๅ‘ผใณๆจใฆใซใ—ใฆ ๅค•ๆšฎใ‚Œใซๅพฎ็ฌ‘ใ‚“ใงใ„ใŸใ‘ใฉ

I find this worthy of note because honorifics don't play as big of a part in the other languages I speak except for Korean. Here, the fact that the singer's love interest has dropped the use of honorifics when speaking to her is taken to be a positive sign. The chorus that follows this verse even states that they've become more than friends at that point.

The second one is from ่ฆ‹ใคใ‚ใฆใ„ใŸใ„ใญ

> ใƒฉใ‚ธใ‚ชใฎใƒดใ‚ฉใƒชใƒฅใƒผใƒ ใ‚ใ’ใฆ ไบบ็›ฎ ๆฐ—ใซใ—ใฆ

Lyrics about ramping up the volume is nothing new, but aside from this one particular song, I've never ever heard of lyrics advocating for mindfulness about the people one might disturb and attract the attention of by being loud. For the most part, most songs that mention raising the volume advocate more for not giving a damn about authorities,

Japanese high court today reversed lower courtโ€™s decision that let a father who repeatedly raped his daughter since childhood walk free, sentenced him to 10 years in jail

Here is an article summarizing the initial ruling and subsequent protests. Read at your discretion as it might be triggering to some.

http://www.asahi.com/sp/ajw/articles/AJ201904170050.html

Iโ€™m glad that the daughter finally got some justice but itโ€™s too little too late. Criminal courts are supposed to look out for victims like her. Instead, the lower court basically blamed the victim for her own abuse, claiming she could have resisted if she wanted to. As a Japanese woman, I was embarrassed about the initial ruling. I didnโ€™t understand how the court came to the conclusion. It made me extremely scared for fellow women in the country. It really showed that women in my country must keep fighting so future generations of women wouldnโ€™t be subjected to something like this ever again.

EDIT: Here is a new article about todayโ€™s decision by the high court

I am learning English and I want to improve more. Thus, making video or writing blog with English translation is a good practice for me.

On the other hand, Iโ€™m also interested in introducing how to practice Japanese. Thus, I am writing blog or making video about learning Japanese.

As you know, one of important things to improve writing is to write a lot.

Thus, I think it is better for us to have co-learning online that we check an article, we try to write question sentence, write its answer as writing practice and share them on Reddit.

โ‘กWriting Practice: What will we do?

For elementary level learners

(1) Read English sentences in introduced article in my blog and try to make a question sentence related to article and answer by yourself. (For Intermediate or Upper level learners, try to read Japanese sentences. If you cannot read some Kanji, use this site. [https://www.webtoolss.com/hiragana.html](https://www.webtoolss.com/hira

Learning Japanese from Video Games with a Native Speaker! (Pokemon Sword and Shield)

Hello r/japanese! My name's Roy and I started playing Pokemon Sword in Japanese with my Japanese girlfriend Yuzu to make entertaining content for Japanese learners! We read out loud and translate all the dialogue shown into English subtitles that you can use if you're a beginner or turn off to try reading the text yourself! From the feedback I've gotten so far, it's a pretty fun way to get listening, reading, vocabulary, and kanji practice at a JLPT N4-N2 level!

How to celebrate Japanese New Year / The first visit of shrines and temples called Hatsumode๏ผˆๅˆ่ฉฃ๏ผ‰

Hi. My name is Hiro, a 28-year-old guy living in Tokyo.

Today I uploaded a video featuring one of Japanese customs called โ€œHatsumodeโ€, the first visit of shrines or temples in the Japanese new year.

Many people in Japan usually start to take a vacation from 28th Dec to 3rd Jan, After it turns a new year, the first thing to do is Hatsumode.

During new year season, major shrines and temples are alway busy and food stalls come out inside. People wait their turn to pray and wish for their luck and wellbeing this year.

Iโ€™d highly recommend you try Hatsumode if you come to Japan during that season, so I made the video showing how to perform it at temples. (There is a different way at shrines.) Hope you like it and have a nice trip to Japan!!

What can I do to learn Japanese daily even when I'm busy?

Even though my chances of living in Japan are quite low, and I wouldn't have much use for this skill, I want to learn because it's good for your brain to learn something so different from your native language. I thought I should start while I'm still considered a kid since the youth learn things more thoroughly when they start early. Sadly, the only time I'd have time to hit the books would be during summer, and only 3 months of learning and waiting another 9 months to contimue wouldn't really work. Is there anything I could do to get started that isn't too time consuming?

My boyfriend knows Japanese and we went there together so I know he'd really love a good joke. I think theres potential with kokoro and koko, something like "here is my heart" or another pun on ai (ai love you?) Thats really all I have and the internet is no help, so I go to the people.
