5 Great Ways to Relax in Canada as a Japanese Immigrant

Jan 19 ( - Moving away from your homeland can be very challenging, even if it is for the best. It is leaving a world that used to be your comfort zone with people that relate best to you to a new world with different people, cultures, and traditions.
