Why I like being in Japan

Japan is great. The people are sweet and polite, the food is amazing, everything is clean. No one bothers you yet everyone is happy to help you.

What I really like about this country is the mood I get into; a sort of trance like state, because I have no clue what is going on. It is kind of like being on LSD: language makes no sense, text is unreadable, and there are cute faces drawn on everything.

I lived here for a few months months and I still had no clue what’s going on. I think I could spend 10 lifetimes in Japan and hardly understand anything. I am a distant observer and that is exactly what I like about it.
