Yvan Da Silva4,840Hi everyone,As many of you already know, I have a nice circle called "ReadThis", the name says it all. From time to time I go check what that circle is doing because I know they do great posts, have absolutely brilliant minds and have caught my attention at a moment or another.You don't have to do anything special to get in, this circle is in constant movement. People get in, some people get out etc. Depending on their posts, comments and activity. If you are new to Google+ then this is definitively a circle you might consider. You do not have to add them all, you can actually select which people you want to follow! Hope it will help you find great people.Happy Friday everyone ! #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #circleshare   #circlesharing  2012-11-09 16:53:45199303

The below tweet talks about the interview process for naturalization for South Korea. As part of the test, you must sing one of the first four verses of the ROK national anthem. Fortunately, you do not have to memorize (or sing) the Japanese national anthem to naturalize. If you had to take a test for Japanese nationality, could you pass? Try taking a mock (old) imaginary test here: http://www.turning-japanese.info/2012/12/could-you-pass-japanese-citizenship-test.html

The newest version of Firefox (version 38) can finally display Japanese <ruby>, which our site uses extensively, without the need of a special plugin or hack. With that, all latest versions of the major browsers (Internet Explorer, and the WebKit browsers: Chrome, Safari, Opera) can display this "yomigana/furigana" natively!

A question for either naturalized Japanese, those thinking about it, or non-Japanese (for fun): where in Japan would you choose your "roots" or "origin" to be? You don't have to live in the place. Read this to see what places are permissible and what aren't. Let us know in the comments!

Although Chris Hart has just begun the naturalization process, we added his name to the list here anyway (the odds of approval are pretty high for him). We don't know the exact date he'll be approved or the exact name he'll choose. When we know, we'll update this page.

If you have ever completed a census form here you would have noticed that the only distinction made is between Japanese and non-Japanese nationality. This means that if you naturalize there will be no official listing of your ethnic background.

Well written summary of the ways to get Japanese nationality, including nationality. (And yes, it contains a shout out to our site, although that's not the only reason we're pointing the site out.)

An interesting perspective from a American who lived in France a long time and now lives in Osaka on people who do not follow all the procedures for Japanese naturalization (it cites the Becoming legally Japanese blog).

Chris Hart, age 30, U.S. citizen, has announced on his blog that he has begun the process for naturalizing to Japanese. Chris is a famous professional singer in Japan, known for his J-Pop, covers, and covers.

He has said that while he doesn't believe changing your nationality makes you Japanese, he wants to feel the same sort of responsibility that Japanese have and contribute to the country of Japan.

Check out his site here: <http://chris-hart.net/> and his blog here: <http://ameblo.jp/chris-hart/>

It may seem obvious, but having a normal, regular job is the best qualification for naturalization (compared to irregular work) outside of the mandatory 5 years of continuous residence and a clean record.

This guy ran for office after just 2 months after naturalizing. Running to represent non-Japanese is a risky venture, as voters (which are Japanese nationals, of course) expect their politicians to represent them and what's in their best interests.

Japan's passport ranks fourth in the world in terms of "Passport Power". (In case you were wondering, the U.S. and U.K. are first, France, South Korea and Germany are second, Sweden and Italy are third).

One nitpick about this post: not all Japanese passports are red. http://www.turning-japanese.info/2012/07/types-of-japanese-passports.html

Some guys are hard core.

RI Komaki came to Japan 27 years ago as an exchange student, naturalized just two months ago, and is now running for a city councilor seat in Shinjuku, Tokyo. "If elected, I'll be a big blow to China, which has no democracy."

While the Sōshi-kaimei (創氏改名) policy existed in Imperial Japan, this policy was used for Korea because most Koreans did not have family names at the time.

Tweaked the fonts a little bit; Post headlines are now serif based, and hyperlinks to other pages use a variant that stands out for captions. The fonts are Russian and open source, as this page mentions, and you're free to use them.

I may consider using the international font Noto in the future, which allows for good blending with western and Japanese scripts.

We recently added a new contributor to Becoming legally Japanese: Shimon, from Bangladesh, naturalized to Japanese this year. He will be the first contributor to the site who had Bangladesh nationality.

We're always looking for naturalized people from different countries who can share their experiences in English for the blog, as the procedures for every person -- and in general, every country, are always a little different.

Welcome, +Showumen biswas !

I've added a link to the section of the site that studies Japanese nationality into the "Related Links" gadget on the right side of the web page.

A technical improvement to the blog: In the past, I implemented a 800ms delay on load in order to make sure the dynamic views loaded all for information to make sure the site rendered properly. The almost one second delay was arbitrarily chosen as being the longest it would take most people's reasonable net connections and speeds to get the info.

Now, using this fix, it may display much faster as it loads as soon as it's ready.

Overall this video makes some good points, but it does have one big fatal flaw: while it seems to understand that nationality is separate, it does confuse and mix the concepts of race and ethnicity. Note how the speaker sometimes says "race SLASH ethnicity". This confusion often leads to statements implying that ethnicity is like race in that it can't be changed. Ethnicity, unlike race, is not necessarily constant or immutable, and whether one is a certain ethnicity or another is often a subjective thing that people don't necessarily agree on or can define.

Every once in a while, I or somebody else answers one of these questions with a blog post (like just yesterday regarding kanji names: Question #92). If you have a question you'd like answered regarding Becoming legally Japanese, please post it on the Google+ "Turning Japanese" Community.

Akemashite omedetō gozaimasu! 2014 was not a productive year for BlJ, but we hope to change that in 2015 with a lot more profiles of famous naturalized people. Here's a big one. Literally.

Happy New Year! Taiwan is apparently making it a little easier to naturalize, and making their system similar to Japan in that for some countries you can renounce your other nationalities after acquiring your new nationality.

In official examples, Mrs. “El Mehri” becomes Mrs. “Emery”; “Ahmed” becomes “Ahmed Alain” (or if he prefers, “Alain Ahmed”); and the Polish immigrant “Jacek Krzysztof Henryk” emerges as the debonair “Maxime.”

For Japanese naturalization, the only Japanese "values" you are required to adopt is to obey the Japanese Constitution, Japanese laws, and be a good citizen. You may have to demonstrate minimal Japanese language ability... not to demonstrate Japanese "values" , but to demonstrate minimum skills necessary to make a living in Japan.
