Lateral transfer from Japanese bank in Tokyo to US BB IBD

I'm currently a first year analyst in DCM at a Japanese BB in Tokyo. Not gonna lie, I fucking hate it. I'm fluent in the language so initially I thought it'd be a good experience for the future (I definitely intended on working at a bank in the states before going buy-side) but now I see my flaw of underestimating Japanese work culture. Now I'm preparing to go back to the states for a BB IBD.

I plan on starting to interview in a couple months (so I'd have at least a year here before I move) but I wanted to see what people's opinions are on this lateral transfer. I do miss the states and want to go back pretty bad but don't have a good understanding of how my current credentials would hold up.

Any help would be appreciated.
