"Tini comes from afar, that is from Japan."
Translation:Tini datang dari jauh, yaitu dari Jepang.
Tini berasal dari Jepang = Tini originates from Japan (That was where she was raised, or born, etc.)
Tini datang dari Jepang = Tini comes from Japan (Could refer to originating there like berasal, or could just mean that she came from there for the sake of her current trip, even if she originally came from somewhere else)
That's my understanding from these lessons, but hopefully a native speaker can clarify if I'm wrong
