There are so many things to discover about how they relate to each other, the roads where you walk simply and other cultural differences. Being so different we are the ones attracted to others.
Japan’s national sport is sumo. Japanese like to cover themselves from the sun to stay clear, when they come out they have umbrellas. The trains step by step and are careful not to sweat and sneeze in public. One of the most obvious social conventions is the bow. Everyone bows when they say hello, goodbye, thank you or sorry. Bowing is a term of respect, remorse, gratitude and greeting.
Spring in Japan can only mean one thing: cherry blossom. It is a turistic moment,that usually begins to bloom in Okinawa in around January/February, passes through the middle of Japan in March and April, and finishes with a late bloom in northern Hokkaido in May. Typical hanami spots include city parks, landscape gardens, castle grounds and along riverbanks, and you’ll find all of these areas buzzing with people throughout the sakura season.
For the traditional culture of geisha culture, you must head to the cultural capital of Kyoto. Under a hundred geisha remain in the city, living and working in the traditional teahouses as they always have done. The inevitable declining numbers due to the strict and secular world make this profession as elite and enigmatic as it always has been.
