I recently enrolled in two beginner level Japanese classes at Soko Gakuen in Japan Town in San Francisco. One class is conversational and the other class covers both writing and conversation. You never know what a random search can guide you to on the internet. I wanted to see what information was there on Islam and Japan and I got links to many blogs that sounded interesting.
Before I list the blogs, I was surprised that most of them were blogs on Blogger. Word Press dominates the blogs market in the US. Many of these blogs did not have quick links to get their rss feed. I had to do some digging and found that all blogger blogs have their feeds at: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss
Its not as simple as Word Press where you have links to the full blog feed and the comments feed directly. For example, my blog’s full rss feed is: https://brainhash.wordpress.com/feed/
Anyways .. enough about feeds and all that. The blogs that I found interesting are:
They describe themselves as:
تتناول المدونة ما يتعلق باليابان. ونرحب بتعاون الزوار في تقديم المقالات والأخبار ضمن هذا الإطار وتصحيح
الأخطاء اللغوية فيها بالإضافة إلى ترجمات نصوص يابانية أو إنجليزية سنختارها

A blog by a Jordanian student living and studying in Tokyo. She seems to have gone to the Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST). I myself spent 2 years at JUST in the computer engineering department before I transferred to SCU in the US.
This blog seems to belong to another Jordanian student living in Tokyo. I found out about a soccer match between Jordan and Japan through this site. I never knew that Jordan played Japan before. I have been living abroad for way too long. In any case, here is the youtube video of the penalty kicks between the two teams. I can’t believe that we were up by two and then eventually lost. Its truly disappointing.
A blog by a Tunisian girl living and studying in Japan.Through her blog I found a link to a service called Yamli. I used to write the following sentence. This is sooo cool.
