I'm unfortunately from South Africa, this place is nice for tourists but that's it.

Can't say I've been to Japan, haven't been that lucky. It may seem like I have , for want of a better word, a weeaboo's view of Japan. I don't expect to ever be accepted fully, I understand that it's not easy for foreigners to be integrated into Japanese life. I'm perfectly happy to be がいじん.

I'd give my kidney to live anywhere in Canada. I know a few Canadian folk and they have to be the nicest people I've ever met.

Personally, I feel like a stranger in my home country, I've never fit in and I've never felt comfortable here. After spending a little over 2 years in the USA, I came home wondering if I would feel different, if I would feel like I belong here, turns out that I feel even more alienated than before. I'm planning on going to Japan long-term, the way I see it I wont be giving up my culture, I'll be adopting and accepting a culture, one with a diverse and rich history. I fully understand that it's not going to be an easy transition but it will be worth it if I can finally feel at home somewhere.
