Junichi Tazawa returned to Japan on Saturday.
Said Tazawa about his season, "I had a better season than I thought I would. I have never wore [a Japanese national team uniform] so I am not sure, but I would be honored if selected. ... Things were pretty much the same as always [this season]. I did nothing different in particular to take care of myself. ... I have my agent taking care [of negotiations]. I am not too worried about [my next] contract."
