The first time to live outside Japan
Four years ago, we moved to London because of my husband’s work transfer. This was the first time for my family to live outside Japan. When I think about it now, it was extremely amazing memories in our life in all senses.
But at first, I was so bewildered by many differences of lifestyle.
Days of many hardship
Just after we moved to London, I always complained to my husband.
In addition to language difficulty, I was so puzzled by different life style in UK and I got grumpy.
Respect for other lifestyle
While I struggled to get used to the native lifestyle, I couldn’t feel familiar with native people.
But fortunately, the next-door old English woman was so kind that she always taught me various things. After a while, I became familiar with the native life-style. I came to like communicating with native people spontaneously, which made me further understand their lifestyle.
Through such experience, I really thought we could build much better relationship by knowing mutual lifestyle. Hopefully this site will hold something useful for your feeling familiar with Japanese lifestyle and building good relationship.
