I am a youthful translator seeking Japanese to English and English to Japanese translations. I lived in Japan for a total of six years during which I attended Japanese schools and participated in many extra-curricular activities. My Japanese language knowledge comes from complete Japanese immersion from Grade 3 to 9 as well as updating knowledge and vocabulary through reading and writing. I am familiar with a few dialects as well as formal and non-formal language. I continue to maintain a close bond with the language and culture through family living in Tokyo and Niigata-Ken (the prefecture in which I resided during my time in Japan).
