Living in Japan
Japan was never on the top of my list for places to visit, but after living here I highly recommend you add it to yours.
Japan is stunning, everyone is so friendly and the food is amazing!
There have been so many times where I've been lost and a random person has come up to me and tried to help direct me in the correct direction. I've even had my taxi driver drop me off and I (with my hand signals) asked where I was suppose to go. He got out and walked me to the front door.
There are tons of different parks, castles and shrines to visit and explore.
I always end up coming across something beautiful!
ramen, salad, beef bowls, yakiniku, curry, sushi
The food is so good!!!!!
Yakiniku means grilled meat in English- beef tongue and diaphragm are my favorite!
I will say if you love sushi in America, you may or may not love it in Japan.
It is so fresh!!!!
I feel like I'm on Fear Factor every time we go get sushi haha
After two months of being in Japan I gained 8 lbs haha yes the food is that good!
The differences between Japan and America.
Everyone stands on the left of the escalator, the right is for passing and walking down
At restaurants the waiter won't come up to your table and greet you until you wave them over.. Which I LOVE!!!
You take public transportation just about everywhere you go!
Water glasses are mini glasses, they don't fill cups up all the way either.. I feel like a fish with the amount of times I have to have it filled
Karaoke is in a private room with just you and your friends. It is so incredibly fun!
At restaurants, they bring your food out when it's ready, they don't wait for all of your tables meals to be ready
The eggs are very orange on the inside and taste much better
On public transportation it is very quiet and clean. There are signs that say to refrain from talking on the phone. There are seats just for the elderly and pregnant women
There are rooms just for nursing your baby!
The toilets are electric, the seats are heated
At baseball games, there is a band playing the entire time!
The children will take public transportation all on their own.. You'll see four year olds on the subways by themselves! It is so safe here
The washer and drier is a two in one machine.. it is also a wrinkle machine that doesn't really dry your clothes haha
The microwave and the oven are the same
TSA is SOO NICE!!! They will help lift your bags, they are so patient and so kind! It shocked me!
