My reasons for staying largely center around the money I earn teaching.
When I was younger and single Asian women were a major drawing card. (I never gave a damn if they were Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Filipino or whatever. If she looks good, she looks good.)
However, I wouldn’t have stayed if the money wasn’t right.
At the end of the day I like Japan and have been treated very well but I prefer the States which is where I plan to retire.
