    I don't know if this has been linked here before, but in case it has not, here's something for those who want to visit Japan and be able to say a few things in Japanese regarding photography:

    This link was from a photo-supply importer/distributor Kindai where I was checking out some info on status of Forte products. I thought it was kind of goofy, nerdy, and funny in a way that people can find something like this almost everywhere today. Anyway, it's only for photo terms, so why not? :D

    Wakarimasen.

    I had a half-Japanese girlfriend once. Her mother loaned me 'Japanese in Three Weeks.' I gave it back after a couple of months.

    As I say, wakarimasen. (Hope I remember it right -- 'I don't understand'.)

    Cheers,

    R.

    Quick correction here: not "jirisha-jin" but "girisha-jin" with "g".

    And I'm sure you're "sukebe." I am, too. In fact all men are... :D

    Mochiron.

    I wish I could study it daily. I have not used it at all for over 10 years. When I saw Dr Tani from Fuji this spring, I could barely make myself understood.

    But it would be nice if we all could understand one another.

    There is a computer lab down the hall...I could hang out there and find one. My employers discourage me from having too much fun with the students here, however.
