A couple years ago when I came home from Haiti I thought about how fortunate I was to live in America. We have seemingly endless opportunities that developing countries don't have. However after coming home from Japan, I realized how much room our country has to grow. Almost every one we met in Japan greeted us with a big smile and slight bow...the cleanliness of the county as astonishing yet there were no trash cans in public...and the country was rich with life and tradition. Everyone was just happy. I hope to go back someday and explore more of the country and dive deeper into the culture, but until then, here are some photos of my trip and a track that I couldn't stop listening to while I was there.
