  • Is Japan different to what you expected?

We all have expectations and when the real thing comes before our eyes, we are sometimes surprised in either a positive or negative way.
"Is married life what you expected it to be?"
私たちはみんな期待をもち、事実を目の当たりにすると、時にはポジティブにもネガティブにも驚くものです。

 "Is married life what you expected it to be?"
結婚生活は想像していたとおりですか?

  • Was your visit to Japan what you expected it would be?

This question focuses more specifically on their experience in Japan rather than Japan as a country. It may be possible that Japan was how they expected it but the visit did not meet their expectations because they could not see everything that they wanted to.

I hope that this helps :)
この質問は、日本という国そのものよりも、相手の日本での経験に特に焦点を置いています。日本は、その人が思っていたとおりだったということはあり得ますが、見たかったもの全て見ることができなかったので、期待に沿わなかったということもあり得ます。

  • Did you expect Japan to be like this?

Asking somebody "Is Japan different than what you expected?" is basically asking them if Japan is different than what they imagined. This could yield a good or bad answer.
"Did you expect Japan to be like this?" is another way of saying "Is Japan different than what you expected?"
"Is Japan different than what you expected?"(日本は思っていたのと違っていますか)
は、日本が想像と違っていたかどうか尋ねています。これは日本に対して肯定的な答えが返ってくる可能性もありますし、否定的な答えが返ってくる可能性もあります。


"Did you expect Japan to be like this?"(日本は想像していた通りでしたか)は "Is Japan different than what you expected?" の別の言い方です。

When you think about doing something you have your own thoughts on what it will be like this is called your 'expectaion' or what you 'expext' or what you 'imagine'
So you might ask 'was Japan different to what you imagined? or 'was Japan different than you expected?'
When you think about doing something you have your own thoughts on what it will be like this is called yourあることをしてどうなるか考えることを、 'expectaion' (期待)や'imagine'(想像する)と言います。

'was Japan different to what you imagined? (日本は想像したのと違いましたか?)や 'was Japan different than you expected?'(日本は期待していたのとは違いましたか?)と聞くことができます。

  • "Did Japan meet or surpass your expectations?"

  • "Was your visit to Japan how you imagined it would be?"

    play icon

"Did Japan meet or surpass your expectations?" You are asking your reader/listener in Japan was what they thought it would be and/or more? This starts a conversation about reality, culture, society and so on.

"Was your visit to Japan how you imagined it would be?" This example sentence is similar to the above however in words that are probably more commonly use or understood by non-native English speakers.
"Did Japan meet or surpass your expectations?"
(日本は期待していた通りですか、それとも期待はずれでしたか?)

日本にいる相手に、思っていた通りだったか、それ以上だったかを尋ねる文です。現実のこと、文化、社会などについて会話を始める文となります。
 
"Was your visit to Japan how you imagined it would be?"
(日本への旅行は、想像していた通りでしたか?)

これは、上の文とよく似ていますが、より一般的に使われ、英語のネイティブスピーカーでない人にも理解してもらえるでしょう。

This would be a great way of asking the person if Japan was as good as what they expected.
これは「日本は期待通りにいい国でしたか」という意味です。
