Japan is an interesting place. I've lived here for a long time now and still can't wrap my head around many things. But is there ever a logical way to explain a country and its ever changing society? Nothings stays the same forever. The overall character of a person or country may not change at the root, but they are always growing or evolving in one way or another!
There are many things here that will want to make you bang your head against a wall... but if you take a moment to enjoy the quiet moments in between the chaos, you will find an everlasting sense of peace.
