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