No, not fluent. I can ask directions, say don't put sesame on my food, have very elementary conversations. Talk to my kids and tell them things in Japanese i don't want others to hear. But not fluent and i can't read outside of the phonetic language.

I've very bad at languages, always have been. It just doesn't stick.

Is it really as "wacky" (for lack of a better word) there as lots of Americans seem to think? Strange things we hear about like sex hotels, vending machines to buy women's underwear, etc.

There is a bunch of strange stuff but the thing is it's not common (at all) and people in Japan frown upon it just like they do here. I think personally the disturbing thing is that there is this subtle sexualizing of young girls that i don't like, idol groups made of girls that look like JHS girls. I've seen a store that had pin up pictures of 13/14 year old girls (not porn pictures, dressed) that was creepy as hell. But the stuff like panty shops, etc. - it's not common.

There are love hotels though, but that's not really strange, it's just different. Japan is small. And it's just a cultural thing that the girl doesn't want you in her house or her parents are just home and there is no privacy, so you go to the hotel. They are really cool, they have karaoke, video games, food vending machines. Also the trains stop at midnight so it's hard to get laid then go home because you'd be stuck outside.

We have the kids now so me and my wife would go to a hotel for a few hours (it's for a few hours, not hourly). And you pay via vending machine, no person at the door.

Interesting. One more question.

How do you feel, a young black male would could fit in inside of a country like Japan? How difficult to overcome are the cultural barriers?

They seem to make plenty of toys for women, including some that are quite popular here.

There is a subtle racism (and at times not so subtle) that would make IMO working there in any type of professional capacity difficult. I have friends who are young black males, but only 1 was a professional and he worked for an american company, the others were in the army, 1 a musician, etc. I think it would be hard for a black american to get a lot of jobs, and i think if you dated/wanted to marry a japanese girl, a lot of parents could have issues with that. Some don't, all my friends married Japanese girls and things wound up ok. It comes out in other ways too, my musician friend everyone is not surprised he's so talented musically, because he's black. Things like that.

The thing about Japan is it's full of Japanese people. That sounds silly but if you think about it, when you only know 1 thing, it makes accepting outside things more difficult.

Is your mother-in-law easy to deal with? How did your Japanese wife's family treat you since you're not Japanese or Asian?

She was divorced from my wife's father and didn't live with her daughters for a long time, and the father is a ****ing asshole (he's sick in a home and we have no contact with him). So she couldn't really complain too much. They were cautious but it wasn't bad. I had to take them out and get questioned and such but i don't think it was that bad. They love me now, because we have 2 gorgeous kids and my daughter is fluent in japanese so she can speak to grandma. It was not bad.

Generally if you marry a japanese woman she is probably not going to be so traditional that her parents would not allow it.
