Valentines is a special day for many couples but here in Japan things are done a little differently.

While in the West you might see a long line of men buying chocolates or flowers for their special someone, here in Japan it’s the woman’s responsibility to buy a gift to give to their men.

This role reversal is just one of the unique aspects of living and dating in a new country. In this show we talk to Lorie and Sho about the challenges and rewards of being an intercultural couple.

From punctuality to cleanliness we take a look at the extra challenge that cultural differences bring to a relationship.
