The Japanese countryside free from suburbia still exists.  :)  It's just not too apparent when it's dwarfed by the fame of Tokyo and all the great cities in Japan.  In fact, next weekend, I will be going to the country to a very very small village to do some work.  I'll have to let you know how that goes later.

As someone who is surrounded by miles upon miles of said farmland, it's hard for me to think of anything *but* farmland when I think of Illinois.

It gives one a new prospective on life when you can visit other
countries and experience their culture.

When you come back you will be wanting to sleep all day.  :D

I almost fell over when that portal let Arbutus in. :orbunny:
It's always good to see our bunny friend, and I hope he is
doing well.

What did you see that really made you go, "WOW!", in Japan?

I know that you probably mentioned a few things, but I just want to know what ordinary things over there are so different from over here.

In a culture where respect for each other is held high. Fear of others would be much less or virtually non existent.

A century ago one would find many places here in the U.S where you
could trust almost everyone. Though it was more prevelent in the
rural areas even then.

In some small comunities here in the U.S. there is some reminant of respect
where some people feel comfortable leaving their homes and property unlocked or unguarded. But even there it is quickly disappearing.

When disaster strikes we find the true nature of americans. We
stand up and help each other in great numbers. Of course the
media with it's desire or need of ratings always points out the bad
side of humanity. We need the media, but hearing about terrible
events can create distrust, distress, and fear over time.

I wonder how the media paints events in Japan. Of course their
culture would affect it.

On a lighter side. How was the bullet train ride? :orbunny:

Yes. That belief in image ties in well with respect or loss of it.. I understand
the Samari committed suicide rather than living in dishonor.

I don't know how the average Japanese deals with dishonor. But I am sure
it's still hard to live with.

Even here image is important to many people. A buisness will usually
do a lot better if it has a good image.

Of course some people here don't care at all.

Several years ago I saw a documentary on tv showing how
Japanese children are taught in schools. It appeared to
be very competitive. This continued into college. There
they toss a young man into a tough buisness learning curve
where he either makes the grade or fails in disgrace.

It's been sometime so I don't know if they still teach their
people this way or not.  I have seen some physical game shows
on tv where the average young person will do almost anything
to win. Not to hurt one another but they didn't seem to worry
about hurting themselves while trying to win. Of course you never
know how real programs like this are.

Not knowing any Japanese personally, I can only go on what I
have seen and read. They appear to be very industrious and
hard working. 

I often wonder how it would have affected this country or theirs
if we had accepted them as the 49th state when they applied back
in the 1950's.  Of course there wasn't any way we would have accepted
them with the terrible memories of WWII so fresh in our minds.

Sounds like your going to be a busy fellow. Keep your

It's hard to believe that the year is 2014.  I still think about it sometimes and realize just how far we are in the timeline.  Or at least, it seems like that, thanks to the power of Hollywood movies and bestselling sci-fi novels.

I have this feeling of progression that I haven't felt in a while.  That's really all I have to say.

if it's the progression of our technology that you are talking about, i feel the same way... in the past 15 years we went from these big chunky laptops to these small phones that can do more. and in biology it went from almost no interest to the highest demand, well besides making money....  sad to see that lots of our technology is just used for getting rich....

funny thing is how accurate those movies are. like in gattaca all the gene mods, we most likely will have that in the next decade. and for space we might start building a moon base in the next 4 decades.
