My Friend in America
by Jun Kuzuya

I've never been to America, but I have a friend there. His name is Michel. Michel was an overseas student, and he stayed in Japan for three months. He studied Japanese at Keio University and his father is my father's friend.
When his family came to Japan, my family had a chance to go out for dinner with them. And then, I met him. His appearance was quiet.
But, through talking with him, I felt he was friendly, funny, and he was a very nice guy! So, I was surprised. Now he is in America, so I sometimes write email to him.
Through this experience, I came to think that American people are more friendlier than that of Japanese.
By the way, I want to ask Mr. Wolff. What is the first impression about Japanese people when you came to Japan for the first time?
