Nao goes from a country where she has lots of friends and a great life to Japan where her family has nothing and she knows nothing of the culture. She sees herself as American and has American ideals, which are foreign in Japan. Her classmates bully her severely and even the teacher joins them. This would not have happened to her in America. She is seen as an outsider by the Japanese children and treated as such. Nao’s parents could have helped her transition by helping her improve her Japanese and become more aware of the culture.
