やった！うれしいいいいい。本当に！わたしは日本の行った事があるんですね。At last I went to Japan.
A really wonderful place with great, helpful people.
A really delicious place with lots of interesting items to see and eat.
A really tech-savvy place with amazing gadgets to use and play (haha).
Lastly a really clean beautiful place despite the lack of rubbish bin. Even the toilets in the mid of 伏見稲荷大社 (Fushimi Inari Taisha) is cleaner than our dearest neighbourhood shopping malls.
Anyway, the 2 of us managed to survive the trip despite our broken Japanese. As mentioned, the locals were a helpful lot – I had asked at least 4 ladies for directions and all were kind enough to stop and even bring me to the correct location. Hence, I will strongly encourage you to seek help if you are really lost and with no internet connection to google.
