Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 2 (39)

Convenience store onigiri are way too handy! Why is it that Japanese girls can call just about anything “cute?” The guys at host bars are so hot, they’re like real-life anime characters! These are only some of the mysteries Swedish manga artist Åsa Ekström discovers in this journal comic about her journey from Scandinavia to Japan, which is jam-packed with surprises and laughs! >>>Chapter 2: My Shared House and Traditional Japanese Room (39)「Getting Ready For Job-Hunting」

Getting Ready For Job-Hunting



Åsa’s comment

Until I came to Japan, I’d never worn a suit before in my life, so I felt like I was cosplaying… In Sweden, it depends on your line of work, but you tend to wear clothes that say something about who you are to job interviews. But one basic rule of life in Japan is that you need to show respect to your superiors, so that wouldn’t fly here, huh?
