Country of Origin: Japan

When Hiroko came from Japan her first impression was that some things were bigger, such as food servings and space. She came from Japan in 1984. It was a 10 hour flight but it didn't seem too long to her. She came to the U.S because her husband used to work in Japan and they met. Hiroko worked as an administrative assistant for a Japanese trading corporation.

Hiroko thinks that it was safer in Japan, but they had to do more work in school.
