Japan is really a melting pot of the old and the new and my belief on this grows every time I get to watch Japanese cultural videos shown in one of my local channels. I truly love how they treat their culture with utmost care and pride and how all of them, from young to old join hands in celebration. Even though they regard their past highly, they can still mix it up with the new technologies that they are continuously developing. What a combination this truly is and I just hope that this is also true in my country. I would love to get the chance to travel here even for a day or two and experience this unbelievable fusion of the ancient and the modern :) Enjoy some of the pictures here at http://tinyurl.com/6wbqeu9 The first picture I thank says it all. What do you think?

You're right...Japan does mesh together ancient and new things. Also, they respect their elders and their traditions. I think that is a good thing really. And Japan has really ancient history but also they are very technologically advanced at the same time. It is truly remarkable. Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!

Japan really is remarkable in many ways that is why this is one of the countries I want to visit when I already have the budget :) It is like a time machine wherein you can easily visit the past as well as the future. Have you been to Japan?
