Before visiting Tokyo, I had seen many photos and films, of course. But, when I arrived in Tokyo for the first time and started to explore the city, I was really amazed . Tokyo wasn’t what I had thought! It combined everything one could imagine: skyscrapers, temples and shrines, beautiful gardens, small houses of different design all jumbled together, big stores, small cafes, the interweaving of wires, old lanterns, advertisements with images of big-eyed girls, a lot of trains and tracks, large lit spaces, dark narrow streets, etc., etc. After five visits, Tokyo is still a mystery to me and each time I visit I discover new things!

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo!
