Turning Japanese

A travel blog entry by samaraclifford

I'm not sure if I've talked about how perfect everything is in Japan, the streets are spotless, although there are barely any bins to be seen, bicycles ride in cycle lanes, cars are parked precisely (and close to each other to allow for others) and no one crosses the street until the green signal shows. There are many many more examples of how …
