Mary Aruga first came to Japan, to an all-girls high school in Kagoshima, as part of a one-year Rotary Club exchange program. She later returned to Japan to study as a university student. For this episode of The Japanofiles Podcast, Mary discusses her school experiences, and then talks about how she met her husband and settled down in his family home in Nagano Prefecture. She also discusses the challenges of learning to become "a good Japanese daughter-in-law", and she shares her thoughts on raising bilingual/bicultural children.
