Nihon is an exceptionally beautiful country, even though some of the customs & contemporary culture might seem a tad eccentric to us. I have a friend who has a friend who lives in Italy & runs a B & B w / her husband, even though she’s Japanese – American, & EVERY Dec. 7, they call each other. What the rationale behind this custom is, I haven’t a clue.
Japan at it’s best–when you look at these pictures along side some of the others and think of Gozilla, etc., it really helps you see how hard it is to figure out what’s going on over there.
I even have an Indonesian friend whose niece is fluent in Japanese, & she herself is familiar with many aspects of Japanese culture, even though I don’t think she’s been there herself.
Beautiful shots, but you know the guy in the Mount Fuji house is constantly shouting at people further down the slope to get off his lawn.
If it didn’t stop Rodan it wouldn’t stop my brother.
Look at the wasabi farm: have you ever seen any cultivation in any western country crossed by such a beautiful, imperious and graceful bridge?
No place I could afford that’s for sure.
