A strong Japanese identity (Japanese)

Transcrições disponíveis nas seguintes línguas:

(Japanese) I’m Japanese and, especially since I’ve lived in a foreign country, I feel that I definitely have a strong sense of Japanese identity. And so, even though I’ve lived thirty years in Peru, with all due respect, I have no intention of achieving Peruvian citizenship. Yes, I’ll be Japanese until the end of my life. Although there are all sorts of Japanese people living in foreign countries, for me, the longer I live in a foreign country, the more strongly I am conscious of being Japanese. And because of that, even living outside of Japan, I definitely want to continue living as a Japanese person. It’s an attitude I’ve recently come to hold.
