Being an immigrant in a country that doesn't welcome immigrants isnt shit, it just means you have to be a little stoic when dealing with the people there. In order to compensate for that, Ryan went to Africa, because white worship is still a thing there.
When you realize that you're not the only one who's getting dogged out, because a shit ton of japanese past a certain age actually have very few friends and don't really hang out with anyone except their colleagues and family, then you realize maybe that's how life goes for everyone there. When you realize the rules of the game, only then can you trick the system. it's ironically easier for an expat to bond with people, like other expats. we have a propensity for extraversion that japs do not have. We're different : cultivate that. that's why being an expat/immigrant is fun and being fully Japanese isn't
Trying to be Japanese is a path that will make you miserable because not only you can't be japanese, but being japanese just sucks.
Just remember you're an expat. You'll never be them, chances are your kids will never be accepted as them either, so make the most of who you are.>>2110590
Nothing you wrote in the greentext is something a foreigner doesn't have to deal with in any country. It's just worse because of face culture and people litterally shit themselves over the idea of speaking english and sounding like fools.
speak anything beyond n3 japanese and people will stop complimenting you and start giving you the time of day. Sure, they might giggle. The same way Americans giggle when I tell them I'm actually french despite an autistically good midwest accent. It's a human thing, not a japanese thing.
