どいたしまして。 ごめなさい、 わたし の にほんご へた です。 It has been a long time, haha. I was trying to remember how to say "Minor" in College. I know major was せんもん, but I wasn't sure on the minor. I haven't written or spoken Japanese in 4 years and I've always been terrible at Kanji. You are correct, I don't use a translator-just a Japanese keyboard. I have a friend in Yokohama that I've been trying to introduce to EDC, but he's not interested for whatever reason. Nekolf, do you generally receive positive or negative feedback with the concept of EDC in Japan? Are knife laws prohibitive, or have more people started to come around to philosophy of preparedness in recent years?
