About me

Hi, I'm Ken.

I live in Kobe City in Japan. Kobe has its long history as an international port and therefore it has a large residential district for foreigners called "Kitano-cho". We can see people from various countries on the streets. I do love Kobe.
Here at Lang-8 I hope I’ll talk with as many people from overseas countries as I can.

I've long practiced Karate, one of the Japanese traditional martial arts. So I think I have something to tell you about it.

I like playing the guitar too although it's completely a self-taught style. Allen Hinds is super-cool!


So, I'm looking forward to having a talk with you :)

Ken is great at making corrections in Japanese and provides very easy-to-understand explanations! He also has some of the most interesting entries in English that are super fun to read. Definitely a lang-8 friend worth making especially if you're interested in advanced Japanese-English language exchange!
