Chapter Summary

This chapter shows how a husband's transfer to the United Kingdom (UK) leads Japanese women to develop an appreciation of both the positive and negative aspects of the host country. When living in the UK, they become aware of negative aspects of Japanese culture, and come to see how Japan is viewed from the outside. The overseas assignment also influences women's worldview in providing the opportunity to travel and to come into contact with different nationalities. Women develop in various ways personally as a result of their experience outside Japan. At the same time, however, women develop an even greater awareness of their Japanese identity as a result of the assignment overseas, and mothers come to believe that they have an even greater responsibility to pass on this sense of awareness to their children while living abroad.
