Re: Any Japanese in ZH???

Hi.. Did you finally find some Japanese friend in Zurich?
There have a lot of Japanese in Zurich. I just move to St gallen. I am from Hong Kong. Used to live in Zurich for three years.

I also used to live in Japan. So I have quite a lot of Japanese friends in Japan, Paris and also Zurich. I am not sure they have a tour like Japan for drink in Zurich. Since here is such expensive. Maybe only tea or simple lunch. hahaha. not as crazy drinking and full of food on the table like Japanese style. I misss it so much as well.

But if you have one Japanese friend in Zurich. Then they would love to have drink in their place with many other Japanese with you. It happen for me more often in Paris. I met many Japanese in this way. We are like small family in Paris ( even I am Chinese ).

In Zurich. I have few Japanese friends. But we are more often stay two or three of us and enjoy our private time for coffee at home. Maybe you can go to the Japanese Event in Zurich.

You should go to take their free magazines in Japanese restaurant near Zurich HB. I just knew there have one Korean/ Japanese supermarket near the H&M Zurich HB. you can find the magazines there. Also you can put your announce there. I am not sure you can find Japanese friends there more easier than this site. This site might more popular for English speaker. I guess.

I would like to meet some Japanese in St gallen too. Hope soon. I can meet more interesting people here.

Re: Any Japanese in ZH???

Welcome to forum and Zurich.

I'm Korean not Japanese but I like Japan and Japanese cuisine such as Katsudon. Sometime, I go to Japanese market in Zurich (http://www.nishishop.ch) to buy soba and tofu. As SUNHC stated, you can buy Japanese food in Korean grocery shop near the Zurich HB.

I hope you enjoy Zurich and have a nice weekend!

Hi.. Thanks for your information.

I like Korea as well. I have been to Soeul once. It was a really nice city.
And I was really suprised that how much young korean on the street at night. I went to two nice market. All the young people start shopping from midnight and back home in the morning. I was there as well to join their crazy shopping night. It was really fun.
I love also the Spicy Shin noodles. :-9- ---

I have also some korean friends in Korea and Paris. I like korean 's culture.

Are you also Christian? Do you know this Korean Christian meeting in St gallen? Hope see you there as well. I still waiting for the information from my friend. Then I might go there once with my son.

Thanks for the supermarket information. I will go there and have a look as well.

About Japanese Food. mmm :-9 I love it too.. Basically I love food and cooking. I appreciated each country 's nice food. And I can say. I love Korean 's Kimuchi. I often make some Japanese food at home. Sushi. Japanese warm dishes and share with friends.

Anyway. Keep in touch.

Anyone know how to cancel a post that you made? I had a mistake and then re-write the message again. But cannot cancel the old one anymore. Strange.

Re: Any Japanese in ZH???

Hi All,

I'm not Japanese but I lived in Japan for four years before coming here last July. I speak the language and am immersed in the culture so much that I'm actually contemplating going back.

If someone wants to meet up, PM me.

Regards

Hi! I'm also lived in Japan (Hokkaido) for quite a long time (five years) with my wife. I really like the language and managed to get a level 3 certificate in JLPT. But it has not been much required this skills in here, so I really would like to share some time with japanese people, or people who has some japanese "experience". I'm willing to teach lower levels and to learn from higher ones! :-) and it would be cool to do some japanese activities.

Please let me know if you find or come up with something!

Good luck Kaccey. I met a few Japanese speaking expats in Zurich so I’m sure you'll manage to get a group together.

I decided that JP was the better country for me so I just returned back!
