Since there are no other experts (ie a native Japanese) for this category, I will stand in in the meantime! I can answer anything about Japanese culture, festivals, language, daily life, the people.
I have a BA Japanese major, I have lived in Japan for 5 years and am currently living in Tokyo. I speak and read Japanese (started studying 15 years ago). I became very involved in Japanese life and have many Japanese friends.
