The referendum on the 8th Amendment to the Constitution of Ireland takes place on Friday, May 25th. During the final week of the campaign, Hot Press is bringing you Home for Yes , a series of interviews with Irish emigrants scattered around the globe, who are returning to their native soil to Vote Yes. From Japan to Canada, England to America, we meet the heroes, who are travelling from far and wide in the name of social and political change. We salute them, and wish them Bon Voyage. See you in Ireland!
Kicking us off in the series is Clara Kumagai, 29, Tokyo, Japan
How long have you lived in Japan?
I moved to Tokyo in October 2017. I was asked to teach a term in a University over here, and I’m half Japanese, so everything just seemed to align! That being said, I don’t actually speak Japanese, so I’m over here trying to learn!
