Who are we?

Hello everyone and welcome to our blog!

We are Muku & Hagi – Muku was born and raised in Kansai, Japan while Hagi was born and raised abroad. We met at university and are currently working in Japan.

「むく」と「はぎ」です!日本 (関西)育ちと海外育ちという異なるバックグラウンドを持つ二人で、大学で出会いました。今は卒業し、日本で働き中。

Hello – this is Muku! I was born and raised in the Kansai region, living a life without English. Now, I’m learning English from Hagi.


Hey – this is Hagi! I am Japanese, but was born and raised abroad in the U.S. and in South East Asia. I first started to live in Japan and use the language when I joined a university in the Kansai region. You could say that I’m pretty fluent in Kansai-ben! Currently, I’m learning more about Japan and Japanese from Muku.


What is this blog about?

Chit Chat Japan will talk about Japanese, English, and culture shocks that we found interesting to share. We’ll also include learning tips and our opinions about various topics.

We chose to name our blog, ‘Chit Chat Japan’ because we wanted to ‘chat’ about various topics openly with our different perspectives.


ブログ名は「おしゃべり」するような気軽な感じで作っていけたらということで「Chit Chat」としています。
