My trip to Japan!
I spent some time walking around the area when we first arrived, just exploring the streets and checking out the neighborhood, taking in the street signs and flora. The weather was very pleasant and sunny that day. Everything smelt like fresh cut grass and here were people attending to the trees and grass here and there keeping the roads and gardens very neatly. The streets were tiled along the highway with plaques of various animals and flowers. There were people's homes here and there with nice gardens and bonsai trees as well as little stores and parking places. Some people have vegetable gardens and grow other things. Everywhere you look, everyday items take on a different shape and function than you're used to...
What I also liked ere Japan's famed vending machines that you find located all over the place with lights and even ones that talk to you with visual displays of drinks from juices, pop and alcohol to cigarettes, coffee and soup bowls!
