The Japanese are quite possibly the most respectful people I have ever come across. Pair that with deep rooted culture and some of the best food I've ever had and you got a recipe for success! No but seriously the food in Japan is bananas. I highly recommend visiting Japan at some point in your life just for the sushi and ramen alone.
Sometimes I feel like when a country becomes more technologically advanced it tends to lose some of its culture. Well not Japan. Japan is very rich in history and culture all while keeping up with modern times and trends. At some point in my life I think I would like to live in Japan or at least extensively explore it. I regret not learning much Japanese while I was there. The only phrase I can remember is "Watashi wa debu des" which translates to "I am a fat man."
