9 comments on “Tokunaga Chinami writes about her time living abroad

  1. I’m only half-kidding when I say this: I think there’s a good chance that Chinami turned out the way she did — bright, positive, full of life — because she’s a 25-year-old woman who still gets told by her mother to clean her damn room.

    “Can you even clean up your own room? No? Well, you should think about that. Because if you can’t even clean up your own room, who the hell are you to give advice to the world?”

    Chii has a good mom.

  2. She’s done great. I’ll be on the opposite side of the same coin next year (going to Japan to learn Japanese).

  3. I checked her instagram every now and then but it’s nice seeing the whole story ^_^
    I’m so happy for her!!
    Meanwhile, whenever I go abroad, there’s always a huge group of Americans anyways so it’s not the same lol

    • Idols aren’t much of “celebrities” outside Japan, lol… and even there, H!P is not THAT big. It doesn’t surprise me that none of her classmates knew she used to be an idol.

  4. I’ve followed her IG every now and then. Her English is cute. Where exactly did she go study abroad?

  5. “And what’s more is… After spending about a year there, I actually left my homestay and lived in a flat all by myself for six months! (^^) This, too, was a first-time experience for me!!! I did it because, after living there for a year and becoming able to speak a little bit of English, I felt like I needed a new challenge of some kind! And so I decided to try living alone — something I hadn’t even done in Japan! (laughs)”

    Chii is great, I’m so happy for her~! But I’m still envious that those people got to know her personally xP I bet being friends with her is really great :)
