I visited Japan many times as my son was a businessman in Tokyo for 14 years! Tokyo is a most exciting city...the Cherry blossom season is beautiful. Lose something in Japan & it is always returned to you...children are seen and not heard! I have watched classes of children visiting temples & they are so obedient! After my first visit,I thought of it as a fairy land!!!

Apparently the people are so polite that it was taking too long for the trains to complete boarding at the platforms, so uniformed men are hired as 'pushers' to force passengers through the doors; thus there is no dishonor felt by the people. I read that somewhere a long time ago !

Japan might have the biggest fish markets, but a lot of fish is imported fresh, eg tuna.

Interesting about many streets having no names. I wonder how they address mail for those streets -- or how to tell the Uber driver where to come. ;)

Tom Seigo, rubbish! The Japanese culture is centuries old and has nothing to do with American reconstruction. Every road does NOT lead to America!
