Memoirs of a Trip in JapanBy Hanacooper
Despite that, and although Japan was a great country to have as our first stop, it has failed to 'wow' me. I'm not sure why...maybe reflecting on it during the flight tonight will help me to realize what it is about the place that really failed to impress me. The people are so lovely and helpful, the public transport is impressive and the temples are great...but there is something missing.
So, I would give Japan 7 out of 10.
Best bits - wonderful people, heated toilet seats, transport, the green tea experience in Tokyo, the Nara deer.
Worst bits - the food, lack of beautiful landscape, crowds, noisy Australians in hostels (doesn't bode well for the next leg of the trip!)
I hope that gives you some idea of my thoughts and feelings regarding Japan: great time, good memories, awful food, no 'wow' factor. In a nutshell.
We are going down under now...hope to update you soon.
Lots of valentines love,
