After one year living in Japan

It has been now one year since I first came to Japan. Hopefully I will stay some more time!

When I just came to Japan, I thought I wouldn’t be able to live here. The language is different, culture is different and even working style is different. Yet, after living here for almost one year I gradually came to understand that, despite all the barriers, there are many things in common. If you treat every person, no matter where they come from, with empathy and try to meet them halfway, I am sure it is possible to find a common language and a way to understand each other. We are human, after all.

日本へ来たばかりの時、日本で生活することができないと思っていた。日本語がわからなかった。また、文化やマナーは違うし。しかし、一年生活してわかってきたのは、日本で生活することができる、日本に住んでいることが好きだ。

毎日、日本語を話すようにしている。日本の文化について多くのことを習った。日本人の友達もできた!

どこから来た人であろうと、お互いに歩み寄る努力をすればきっと分かり合える。私たちはみんな同じ人間だ。
