A Tourist in My Own Land | Hokuou Joshi : A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 4 (61)

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 4: Back Home in Sweden (61)「A Tourist in My Own Land」

A Tourist in My Own Land

Åsa’s comment

It’s a pretty big shock going from Tokyo to Sweden! Everything’s totally different here. The population is a lot lower, it’s rich in natural resources, and since the population density is so low, there aren’t many tall buildings. I guess you’d call this reverse culture shock! More than anything else, what surprises me is how spacious everything is.
