Japan is probably the most unique place you can visit on earth.
It’s hard to put a finger on it but what I tell friends is that Japan is just a country running on a different level to anywhere else. I think this comes down to the fact that the Japanese respect their country, they respect their surroundings, they respect each other. Other countries run at such a frantic pace that people don’t have the time to think about the consequences of their actions. You won’t see rubbish strewn around the street, and you won’t see graffiti. Such a contrast to everywhere else I’ve traveled.
Public transport is all pervasive and never misses a beat. You can’t beat getting around the countryside at more than 300km/h on the Shinkansen Bullet Train.
