    Finland is my home but 出身地 would be both Finland and Japan for me. I lived in Japan for 4 years when I was 6-10 years old. We have visited Japan once a year ever since we moved back to Finland, but I think I stopped saying 「日本に帰る」around the age of 13 or 14 and instead started saying 「日本に遊びに行く」, which was probably the point where I stopped feeling like Japan was home for me. For me, Japan is like a summer cottage for a Finn: like an extension of your home.

    Where I am, I make it home. Born in Brazil son of a Japanese father, Brazilian mother, lived in Japan for almost 15 years, never worked in Brazil. My aunt in Kyushu and my mom in Brazil are my only family contacts I really care..neither I can call home, I just can’t relate myself 100% to neither. I met my wife in Japan, she is from Canada, we lived in China, Germany, and now The Philippines. I feel at home when she is with me!

  • 1. Japan is more home to me, in terms of feeling. I do live in America but don’t always feel that American. There is a lot about Japan that I wish we had here.
