Would the Real Japan Please Stand Up...

When you say "Japan" most people immediately think of




Kimonos



and shrines
...but the reality is not so pretty



it's train lines, advertising and power lines



and people on bikes waiting for trains to pass.

However, both versions of Japan are equally fascinating!

    The closest I've ever come to Japan was when my family hosted a Japanese exchange student. We all fell in love with her, and she fell in love with tacos. She was the only person I've ever known who could eat a hard-shell taco without dropping a single bit on her plate. :-)

    My high school had lots of Japanese exchange students too...I remember thinking their uniforms were really girly and they wore a lot of badges! Never imagined I would end up living here though :)

    Seriously liz, who could not fall in love with tacos?!

    Even in the "real" shots Japan still looks exotic to me.
