300 Words: How is Japan?
Sooooo how is Japan?,
Three hundred words is not enough to even begin….
Nine days was no where near enough time either ….not enough time to describe the visual cacophony
of light and sounds that greets the first time traveller upon reaching down-town Tokyo….but that’s another story…I digress.
One of the subtlest things I loved about JApan was the colour co-ordination, the colour combo’s, which you
see everywhere, on everything, a certain sense of style, finess & finish, everything seems considered…
And everyone does their best, works their hardest…maybe sometimes too hard…you feel like saying to some people just chill out, let your hair down…
I got some big smiles from nearly everyone, and especially at the Onsen where people seemed to have most fun…that was real cool,
Seeing old folk sneaking beer into the baths, and chuckling when they got caught, the mountain people know how to live…
I love the architecture,
I love the treatment of nature
I love the fact that everything was so alien to me,
It could have been the age of Edo 150 years ago…
No wonder so many westerners have been inspired by Japan for so long.
It’s like no where else on earth and I’d do anything to go back,
Maybe paint something there..
See the whole country from top to bottom…
And bring all my friends.
There’s something for everyone.
