You might have browsed over my blog and found six entries about my recent trip to Japan. Of course I was so excited to share about the Harry Potter Park in Universal Studios and I also wrote an informative piece about my bullet train experience. There is one thing from that trip, however, that I'd really want to share to the world. It's how the Japanese live quiet and unassuming lives despite being in the middle of the world's biggest and most-advanced cities.
I've heard stories from friends about how friendly the Japanese are, always trying to help lost tourists even if there is a huge language barrier. With all the histories of military conflicts in the past, including what the Filipinos in the 1940's experienced during the Japanese occupation, I find their statement not easy to believe. Not until I experienced the genuine Japanese hospitality myself.
