Japan: what I will miss

IMG_1025-0.GIF

After being in Japan for 3 week, there are things that I will miss and wish we had in England.

1. Japanese Western Toilets – some toilet lids automatically lift up, some seats are warm when you sit on them, some play music, some have a dryer in the toilet, most have a control that squirts water and makes flushing noises. They are just more hygienic.

2. Convenience stores – they give you straws and cutlery with your purchases, they warm up your food if you want, they all have toilets in.

3. Japanese are extremely friendly and helpful people even if they can’t speak English.

4. There are random wi-fi spots everywhere.

5. Petrol station, where an assistant fills up your car and wipes your windows (you literally just sit in the car and they do everything).

6. Beautiful mountainous views everywhere.

7. Vendor machines on the streets.

8. Splendid, pretty, relaxing Japanese gardens.

9. Taking your shoes and being bare foot in restaurants and other places.

10. Masses amount of different fish in restaurants for a cheap price.

11. Fruit flavoured strong cans (I have no idea what alcohol they are).

12. Japanese food: udon, fresh fish, takoyaki,

13. People walking around in kimonos.

14. Neon lights.

15. Tall skyscrapers.

What you may want to be aware of if you travel around Japan:

1. If you are driving, there are load, I mean LOADS of traffic lights.

2. The soap in the toilets is like thin, watery soap.

3. They just don’t have proper English cheese.

4. If you are a vegetarian, it hard to find a meal in a restaurant unless you eat fish.

5. Mosquitos.
