"Afar" is not completely archaic, but is mostly used for rhetorical effect. May I suggest using "far away" as a replacement?

Also can "from" be accepted as part of the answer? "Tini comes from far away, i.e. from Japan."

I think most UK native speakers would use 'from' twice rather than once, regardless of whether they were to use the word 'afar' or the phrase 'far away'. It should definitely not be marked as wrong in either case.

I think "namely Japan" sounds more natural than "that is from Japan".

I think a better answer would be 'Tini comes from far away, Japan that is'

Could it also be "tini arrives from afar... ?
