Things that surprised/amazed me about Japan, an ongoing thread.
(More likely UI than food, but you know this already.)
It’s my first time here. Please comment away and/or point out my cultural insensitivities!
1. A very friendly immigration officer and I laughed together, and when I said “I don’t really know where I’ll be staying,” he actually applauded it.
2. Very nice and clean train from the airport, with power sockets, and vending machines onboard.
Tons of solar panels passed by on the way.
