Japan is a special place. The cultural differences with our western way of life are enormous. This made our trip a unique and fantastic experience.
You can decide not to be surprised at anything anymore, but these Japaniceties are the result of my views on Japan and the Japanese.

Japan, sumimasen, i'm sorry! I hope I haven’t offended you with these Japaniceties. I’m only a naive Westerner, who has tried to put her view of Japan into words in order to communicate to others, not only my surprise and amazement, but my admiration, respect and affection for you and the beautiful country in which you live.

Japan, arigato! Thank you for your hospitality and for letting us enjoy all you had to offer us.

Sayonara! Till next time!
