WOW! JAPAN

Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 3 (41)

Convenience store onigiri are way too handy! Why is it that Japanese girls can call just about anything “cute?” The guys at host bars are so hot, they’re like real-life anime characters! These are only some of the mysteries Swedish manga artist Åsa Ekström discovers in this journal comic about her journey from Scandinavia to Japan, which is jam-packed with surprises and laughs! >>>Chapter 3: The Rewarding Challenges of Japanese (41)「My Big Japanese Breakthrough」

My Big Japanese Breakthrough

Åsa’s comment

Japanese is tough, but that just makes the breakthroughs all the more satisfying! I still can’t read all of the kanji on the onigiri packaging, but for the most part, I can tell what’s in them now. I never need to eat natto or wakame again…!
