As November draws to a close, and I reflect back on what I have experienced, seen and forgotten to blog….well no-ones perfect, and what I wanted to do- which is a rather long list.
I have done quite a bit and ironically, the death of family members did help but I have also come across problems in Japan either by reading the paper or by researching histories of places I have only briefly mentioned.
Japan is changing- there is no argument about this. However, there seems to be a reluctance to change, to want to change.
Along with this, Christmas (believe it or not) is coming and people embrace the festive atmosphere and become extremely charitable and what I would like to do is raise awareness of social or medical problems in Japan or actions Japan is taking on the global stage.
There will still be blog posts about new items, new places and new experiences. But, as it is the festive season, I am being a bit more financially cautious, unfortunately, so I will not be able to travel to the places I want to to highlight the cultural differences and experiences that are there.
I do believe that there needs to be more awareness on wider issues in Japan and this is what I would like to do. Please note, some topics will be difficult to discuss and what I am asking for is cultural understanding. I have a different cultural background to Japan and you my readers also have a different cultural background to I.
I hope that I keep you interested and help your awareness of Japan to grow.
Thank you for reading and happy exploring.
I have been made aware of some technical difficulties that some users have experienced while browsing. I am looking to get this resolved as a priority. Thank you for your understanding.
