Was there any moment you felt you’d like to go back to your country because of Japanese culture or because of your culture?

自分の国に戻りたくなった瞬間はあった?

Canadian Teacher:

There were a few times when I felt disappointed because of cultural misunderstandings, but the times when I felt like going back to Canada had more to do with feeling homesick and missing family than anything else.

American Teacher:

I am a real foodie so I would say that I miss the diversity of the food culture in Hawaii because we have people from all over the world there. We can find food from many different places in a small area.

British Teacher:

I have not been here very long so I don't think I feel like I want to go back home yet. There are things I miss about the UK (mainly my family and my friends) but nothing makes me want to go back to the UK just yet.

Australian Teacher:

I have on numerous occasions wanted to return to Australia for the food and the sports, which I miss a lot.  However, I don't believe there is anything about Japanese culture which has made me want to return to Australia, although I still find some aspects of it hard to understand. 

自国が恋しくなるのは家族や友人と会いたかったり、その国の食べ物が食べたいから。

やっぱり恋しく感じるものは人間として全世界共通のような気がします。
