I know it's tempting. So tempting, sometimes. I'm young and my standard of life would go up in a number of ways if I moved back in with my parents. I could travel whenever I wanted. I wouldn't be living from paycheck to paycheck. But I LIKE having my own rules, a bike-able commute, et cetera.

When my parents are older, they're going to want someone around, but not now and hopefully not for some time. If I'm not married and they need help, I'll be there. And if I'm married and they need help, I'll be there, but it'll be much easier with supplemental income and an extra set of arms.

In Tokyo, it's less of a novelty, but outside the city, you get stared at. A LOT. You're generally seen as superior to foreigners, but sub-Japanese.

Needless to say, I have no problem with the word itself.
