Exploring Japan | August 2010

I just spent a week in Japan, exploring new customs and scenery. Besides the culture being dramatically different from the States, what really stood out for me was the abundant signage. The Japanese characters look like art to an english speaker! I also couldn’t get enough of the Shinto temples and gardens. My friend teaches English in Okayama and was kind enough to show me around.
