Japan, I love you. Seriously though, after the initial shock of just being back in a developed country, I fell in love with Japan all over again. It’s truly amazing, it’s clean, orderly, polite, and let me tell you about the symmetry and design and presentation. That’s probably the biggest difference for all things Japan and all things NOT Japan. Japan is all about presentation, which for a graphics person, is sensory overload. God, I love Japan. After a six hour walk through Osaka, I’m totally taken with this country.

PS. The toilets are even high-tech. The toilet seats are heated, yes, heated, and there are lots of funny buttons to press. Check out the picture. I had no idea the Japanese had such a toilet fetish.
