Strolling...la-la-la...

....Look at this street clock, it's by Bvlgari! Ehem-ehem* sad to say this, but where I come from this piece would probably be vandalised! Aaah...how great can this city be...crime rate is very low! Anyway...let's take to the streets... Time for more 'feast to the eyes' Darlings!
~Enjoy...

....The old and new are forever juxtaposed... The people are comfortable both wearing traditional clothings...whether to shoulder the portable shrines in religious festivals and piloting humanoid fighting machines in any robotic tournaments! ...or traditional Kimono and the latest European fashion! Perhaps the reason why the world never stops wondering how these civilized people actually build a harmonious link between tradition and innovation...What is so unique about Japan is the mixture of two extreme elements- the past, naturally and exclusively blends in with the future. A place you find Zen temples snuggle in sci-fi cityscape and centuries-old fondness for Sakura-Cherry Blossom coexists with a voracious crave for ever-changing innovation... Truly embracing both old custom and new practice in their daily lives! Fab-fab-fab!!! ...Well time to wind down my excitement just a little...cos' it's about time to end my Japan Visit here very soon... ~Thank you everyone who has shared this wonderful visit along with LENORENEVERMORE... I'm so glad most of you have enjoyed as much as I have Darlingsss...~XOXO*

darling, this post just fills me with joy! I love other cultures; and I love they way they allow for more individuality, another thing I miss about living in Europe.

This city looks so clean! The people look so happy!

You have given me a wonderful and educational tour of a place I may never get to travel to. Thank you for taking the time to post these beautiful people and their country.

You're a darling, indeed!

Thank you for leaving a message in my blog. I've been enjoying these days to see your impressions of our culture. I'm so happy to see you've been enjoying your stay. By the way about the ladies in Kimono at the bus stop. Women of their ages and in that outfits and besides in a group----I'm sure they're heading for a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Have a nice day!
