Japanese friends can be a lot like your Chinese or Indian friends, so it can be hard to figure out how to get the most out of your interactions.
For some people, it’s a challenge, as the Japanese-language social network Naver has found.
In Japan, it has been harder for Japanese to establish a meaningful friendship with foreigners, says Tetsuya Koyama, an English-speaking Japanese educator and director of the Tokyo Institute of Technology’s Center for Japanese Culture.
“Japanese social networks are much less successful,” Koyima says.
“The problem is, people are very cautious.”
Naver, which is headquartered in Tokyo, allows users to add a friend, then invite their friends.
They can add photos and add other information like the person’s birthday and the day of their wedding.
Once friends are added, they can see their posts and conversations and chat.
The company also lets users add friends who are not Japanese by clicking on their Japanese name.
But Japanese users are often hesitant to introduce friends from outside their country, and often don’t know how to properly communicate with them, Koyma says.
NaviSushi, the Japanese online dating service that allows users in Japan to chat with friends from other countries, has faced similar challenges.
But it has made a huge leap in recent years.
The company now allows users from all over the world to get matched with their Japanese friends, and it has introduced a Japanese-specific language feature.
Many of its Japanese users use the service to communicate with their friends and to learn Japanese.
The service has been especially popular in Asia, which accounts for about 10 percent of NaviSashis user base, according to Koyami.
Koyama also says Japanese users don’t understand that some Japanese-speaking friends might not speak the same language as their English-speakers counterparts.
Some people might be shy, and people may not have the confidence to speak with them.
That’s why Japanese users often don, he says.
It’s a lot of work for them to communicate and get to know each other.
But as the popularity of Japanese social networks continues to grow, NaviSuisse, which has more than 5 million Japanese users, is hoping to attract more Japanese people.
Its new messaging app, called NaviBiz, has also opened up a Japanese voice chat option that lets users talk to each other in Japanese.
