Did I mention that I love Japan? Sometimes I can’t put my finger on why, I think there are many reasons. Sometimes it’s because I think it is so different. So different then anywhere I’ve ever been. Even though I lived in Japan for a year and a half and this was my third trip there (as a visitor) it still never ceases to amaze me. I often wonder, how can it be so busy, yet everyone is so calm. How can there be so much development yet so many beautiful natural places and how can it be so modern yet so traditional.
