My name is Katja and I have lived in Cape Town for the past 15 years. My father (German) met my mom (Japanese) while he was working in Japan for 16 years. I was born in Osaka, Japan and grew up in Germany from the age of 5. I love the Japanese people, traditions and also their food. I’m very much interested in Japanese conversation and to increase my vocabulary.
