Impressions from yesterday – continuing thought.
Okay it is right now 8:21AM Tokyo Time, May 13, 2009.. and I feel more awake now. 7:30 and May 12 in EST.
Title is probably based on Jet lag is possibly taking a toll. Still I must go go go! Going to take it a little easier.. but impressions from yesterday..probably my impressions will be bouncing around.. and I am probably very incoherent, but this is a subjective representaiton of a different culture.. and fyi..as I have to sometimes repeat this to myself, Japan is my first Asain country to visit, even as my cousin in HK asks if I am going to visit, her – I really wish that was the case. Much better there, than my current experiences in Japan with not really speaking Japanese. Even the Japanese handing out tissues know that I am not Japanese and not hand me one.. T_T
Still I realize that it must be a Japanese love or something.. but got to say cell phone technology here is soooo good that I feel cell phone envy already! I am not a cell phone users per se, but I love the rule that you cannot speak on your cell phone in the train, and so I see so many people just doing the silent thing which to me is like texting..but as Rai reminds me…. that Japanese cell phone tech is so much more advanced.. so the train is blessedly silent..
As a foreigner in Japan, it is so hard to avoid bumping into people, but that is a previous bad posture to begin with. Although Rai mentions that Japanese people walk in a very cute way.. Don’t really see it as that. ^_^
Oh and I also happen to think that the restroom situation is sooo cool!
Ahh and it’s off for me to do laundry! I am right now going to upload photos as we speak.. no pictures for this entry tho.. ^_^
