As you probably all know, I am fascinated by other countries and love to travel. I am going to pick on different countries in the hope of getting you to tell me more about these places. I want to understand better!
I have a British friend who has recently gone to Japan and signed up to an 18 month course to learn Japanese. He showed me pictures of the apartment he's just moved to. His room is minuscule, though he shares a kitchen and living room with other students, so he says it isn't a problem.
I saw this very interesting BBC article about a key part of the Japanese Aesthetic, or where ancient ideals still govern the norms on taste and beauty in Japan called "wabi-sabi," is not only untranslatable, but also considered undefinable in Japanese culture. So I am immediately curious.@takafromtokyo
can you enlighten me? @kindgnice
have you come across this?
The article is interestingly called "Japan's unusual way to view the world."
But what else is unique in Japanese culture? Apart from the food which I adore.
