Saxophones and Somewhere Else

Episode 2


Some foreigners come to Japan and never leave. This episode explores why they decide to make Japan their home, and why other foreigners aren't so sure. After traveling back and forth between two worlds, it becomes hard to differentiate which one is truly your home. It's difficult to choose between your new life 'somewhere else,' and your old life back home that by now may be unrecognizable.


"It's just...not my place anymore." 

-Adam (on returning home for the holidays after living in Japan for 9 years)


"A day hasn't passed when I haven't wondered where I should be, or what I should be doing."

-Jes (on being in Japan for 3 and a half years)
