Have you traveled or please share any of your travel to other countries? My family and I traveled to Japan last year during Spring Season. We wanted to see the cherry blossoms or "Sakura", which Japan is famous for. Unfortunately, the cherry blossoms have already bloomed during our visit. But, we finally managed to see a few blooming cherry trees in Kyoto. It was very beautiful. Despite seeing few blooming cherry trees, Japan is still beautiful. The Japanese are friendly. The culture is awesome. We also enjoyed our trip to Universal Studios in Osaka, as well as out visits to Osaka temple and the famous golden temple in Kyoto. Oh and the bamboo pathway is very nice too. Oh and have I mentioned, the Japanese food is quite delicious too. All in all, it was an enlightening and heartwarming travel vacation. We can't wait to pack our bags and travel again.

It's good you had the change to visit Japan. I've heard they're also clean-conscious of the environment there. We've gone to New Zealand last year and I've posted several Discussions and photos of it in my earlier Discussions tagged New Zealand.

Absolutely, Japan is very clean and yes, a very environment conscious society. We're definitely going back to Japan. I hope you have a chance to visit it. Wow, New Zealand is in my bucket travel list. Hope I can visit it too.

I traveled many times but mostly in countries in our region. I visited Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Greece and Turkey. You probably did not heard about all these countries, they are near my country.

Wow cool. Those are interesting places. Yes I have heard about Macedonia, Greece and of course Turkey, countries which have one of the oldest civilizations. I can understand travelling to countries in your region.Same here, the countries I traveled to are only here in Asia.

I have been to Japan too, in Tokyo. I have been to Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai and now I am living in the US. I like traveling, you get to experience many things and learn things straight from the locals. The only downside is, I hate coming back to unpack. I also do not relish the long lines, delayed flights, and jet lags. There was a time that if I don't have to see an airport for a year, I will be happy.

Oh that's nice, you were able to travel to many countries. Agree with the unpacking chores. But for me unpacking is all worth it with the various experience from travelling.

Wow awesome! I visited Japan around the same time you and your family were there. Small world. I'm amazed at just how beautiful and clean Japan is. I'm enamored by the openness and friendliness of the Japanese people. I also saw just a handful of cherry blossom trees because of my late Sakura Season visit. So lovely indeed. I am definitely obsessed with Japan and its culture now and will vacation there again soon. In my opinion, what makes Japan fascinating is its firm grasp on its history while still leading the world into the future in so many ways with their progressive thinking. Oh geez, I almost forgot to mention how delicious most Japanese food is. One of my favs is okonomiyaki, soooo delish. Not to forget the perfect pizza dinner I had in Osaka's business district. Pizza in japan as if made in Italy. Mmmmmmm. ‹(°¿°)›

Really, you visited Japan last year too? It is a small world indeed! I do agree Japan has its attraction that's uniquely its own. Words can't even describe its beauty and openness. Yes, I too am drawn by Japan and its multi-faceted culture and techno advanced society. Definitely going back there for many vacations to experience its various splendor throughout the different seasons. Japanese food is truly delish. Okonomiyaki is good and I like the takoyaki balls in Dotonbori too. Oh my, my family and I dined in that Italian restaurant in Osaka. Couldn't believe that the staff and the chef have trained in Italy before they opened the restaurant, so that they can serve authentic Italian dishes. Highly recommended restaurant. Hope our paths will cross next time we visit Japan.
