New Zealand is a high-income country like Japan. I had a question how does New Zealand get money? After I came here, I asked my host mother, then she told me. New Zealand earns a fortune through trades with other countries. I heard there are a lot of sheep in New Zealand. But I haven’t seen any yet, so I will go to Butterfly Creek to see the sheep. One of reasons I chose New Zealand, it’s cheaper to live here than other countries. Now the Japanese Yen is strong against the New Zealand Dollar. In the future, I want to come to New Zealand again.
