Since leaving Japan, her awareness of her Japanese identity has sharpened. “Living in the United States, I’ve come to appreciate how rationality helped society to develop. At the same time, I also find it beautiful that Japanese culture has a lot more ambiguity, subtleties, and grayness. There’s much that is not said and there are many ways to express one thing.
