This is what I wrote "I learned that although Japanese and American have different values, in the bases we share the same core values." I was wondering did I use the word bases correctly? Do you think I need to replace with other word? Basically what I am trying to say here in this sentence is that Japanese and American are very different from each other when it comes to their cultures, ideologies, and religions. However we also share the same values like family. Hope it makes sense.
