The summer holidays are almost finished... It was japan this year.

Hello my readers,

I have not been here. Now I am back in Stockholm after I had my wonderful trip in Japan. I've had a fantastic time there and I learned a lot of the japanese culture. It´s always difficult to travel to a new country but this time it was a very good choice. Japan is a wonderful country with very friendly people. It is very organized and very clean. The people wanted to help me every time when I asked for something.

The food was very good... 

I liked to buy drink from a vending machines. You can find them everywhere.

In Japan, you musn´t eat food and you can neither smoke in the street while you are walking. There are places where the people can eat and smoke. Smoking is only in "restricted area to smoke" . Very good because the city is without cigarette butts in the street, but many people smoke inside the restaurant, pub, etc.  I did not see garbage in the streets.

The metro and the train are very good. Very well organized and easy to find the train lines. Every train station has a toilet and they are very clean and it doesn´t cost anything to use the toilet.


During my time in Japan I visited Nagoya, Kyoto, Gero, Mt. Fuji 5th station and the countryside.

I can say that Japan is a very special country. The nature is fantastic and green. I was very suprised that it is VERY CLEAN.
How can Japan be so clean? This is my question now. Maybe it is becuase the japanese people teach their children to take care of their country, maybe it´s becuase their education, thoughts about environment, respect...
I felt safe in Japan. I like the country a lot and I would like to come back, but it's a good idea to learn a little Japanese first becuase very few japanese people speak English.
