Sure, this website is very informative about Japan and all that - I'll give it its props on that...

However, what I do have a complaint about is the "Friend" section - the place where you go and put up an ad to advertise for friends from Japan. I have so many nightmarish stories! My last encounter was with a sex crazed maniac Japanese guy who was 32 years old. I was excited to be his friend because he seemed pretty level headed after a few emails and he spoke great English. After we exchanged email addresses, I went to search for his email on Google because I wanted to add him to Facebook. Long story short, I found him online with tons and TONS of porn videos and different messages that he had written advertising for orgies and such. It was awful! I told him about it and he claims that he was "framed." WHATEVER! There are tons of sick psychos on Japan-Guide like that. Many are married 50+ year old men who want to see naked pictures of you and such. They will ask you for them!

What I also noticed about this site is no one interesting ever writes, only housewives, married men, and perverts... I also noticed that many of the members are very close-minded - the Japanese members that is. They still assume that everyone in the USA and Europe are "White" and if you aren't, they don't want to have anything on earth to do with you. How racist is that?

With all this said, this site has totally turned me off from making any friends from Japan. I have had some horrible experiences with Japanese people - men and women - from using this website. Not interested in them or their culture anymore!

I would not recommend this site to anyone, especially to younger people - ages 14-17 looking for friends.


This website is nothing but rubbish! There are no people on t here at all. The only thing that I get is tons and loads of letters from prisoners from CORRLINKS. I checked my age group for female penpals my age and do you know that I was the ONLY one who had signed up for MONTHS? There is absolutely NO ONE on here to talk with. I don't recommend this site at all. It is horrible!


This website used to be a lot better (2005-2006) until they introduced the "facebook" like features - tons of photos can be added, updating statuses, etc... Takes away from good quality friendship. The only thing that people on this site are looking for is for someone to stroke his/her ego by uploading tons of photos and getting people to "like" or "comment" on them. No one is looking for serious friendships at all.

I have encountered a lot of mean and cruel people on this site, too, many of who are racist, close-minded, etc... Especially those from Asian and European cultures. I have yet to meet a quality person on this site at all. It sucks that there aren't any other penpal sites out there, too!

I would not recommend this site to a mortal enemy!
