Japan – a mix of the ultra-modern and traditional. One of the most intriguing countries I’ve been to, with a very unique culture and a fantastic food scene. I had the chance to visit Japan last year during Thanksgiving.
We reached Tokyo mid afternoon. As soon as we landed I noticed how everything was extremely clean and people moved politely in queues following the rules. We took a train to our hotel in Shinagawa and it was noticeable that no one in the train made eye contact with others or conversed loudly. There was no touching and even to hand money to cab drivers, one is asked to put it on a tray (and this is in the pre corona world ;)).
