I'll have a heaping plate of "rapturously wonderful entry" with a side order of "Japan brings out the best in you," just like everyone else is having, please.

If it's not too personal (or ignorant -- perhaps you've discussed this before) a question, why aren't you living there For Good? Is it the language barrier? the cost? or just not wanting to get too settled in one place?

(Just back from one act at the kabuki-za...)

Why don't I live here For Good? Well, yes, the language barrier, the cost, the fact that it would entail marriage, and the desire to preserve the strangeness of it. I find that when I move to a country I get too close to see all but the quotidian. The sense of delicious strangeness can only be diminished. I think. I might be wrong. Perhaps delicious familiarity would replace it.
