I was young and naïve so it was a little scary in the beginning and I soon discovered the dating process in America is quite different from the one in Japan.
In this article, I want to talk about a few major differences I saw between Japanese and American dating cultures.
The most recommendable dishes are: bigos, kotlet schabowy, pierogi and gołąbki (see below).
Poles boast that their two basic products are bread and sausages.
Over the years they acquired several regional potteries and expanded their product lines several times to include roof tile, decorative art tiles, garden pottery, and art pottery.
Originally, the dinnerware line was sold as Franciscan Pottery and included solidly colored, bright earthenware in the casual style of Mexican folk pottery.
Typical meals are very hearty and often contain a lot of meat.
Even though it had been my dream to live in America, I was very excited but nervous at the same time.
Pieces from Japan were marked “Nippon,” the transliteration of the Japanese word for Japan. Customs required country names to be in English, and the word “Japan” was used instead of “Nippon.” Items marked “Made in Occupied Japan” were made between February 1947 and April 1952. According to experts on 19th- and 20th-century Japanese ceramics, the color does not help date a mark. There is no explanation for when other colors were used.
After 1915 the words “Made in…” were usually added. I have a dragonware tea set with a mark that is something like Noritake's wreath, only simpler, with the letter "T" and "Japan" underneath. This set was given to my grandmother prior to WWII by a tenant who was in the import-export business. The china is translucent and very pale pink and yellow under the heavier markings.
Unlike Japan, California is a true melting pot of cultures but since I had so little dating experience back home, I was nervous about getting into the dating scene in America.
Mostly because I had no idea how the American dating culture worked.
