Being in Japan has always been a dream of mine. It’s hard to believe I’m fulfilling it. Many wouldn’t long to come to Japan. “It’s so far away! I’d rather go to Europe.” Japan is amazing though because of its history and how the culture has been kept almost untouched. The mini shrines in the houses, low tables, temples in the woods. All of that is part of the culture and I have learned I LOVE IT HERE!!
