I rally wanted to visit Japan and it's on my number one list of all the places I wanted to visit. At first I did want to visit it because of my love for anime. But then I started to get more interested in Japan after knowing more about its culture and the beautiful places in it. If given the chance, and with great luck, I also wanted to see my favorite jap artists in person!! Waaaaaaaah!! I'm currently trying to learn nihonggo. It's very hard since I don't really have a tutor and I only rely on books. But then it's still is nice to learn japanese so when I visit Japan, I can interact with the people there and I won't have a hard time trying to understand them, ne?^_^ It's a beautiful country, and they have a beautiful culture too...^_^

japan is the really the topmost on my list of places i want to visit. ^__^ at first it was because of my love for anime. but when i started watching promotional tapes about japan, i became very curious of japan's culture and history. and there are many places there that i would like to visit especially the old temples. i want to pray there to buddha and try lighting an incense(?)! i want to see a real sakura tree and a real samurai! and many many other things. i love japan!

I would love to visit japan I have to admit it started because of my love on anime, but after reading a travel guide book i found that there is a lot more to japan than you would initially think, and i found out about certain 'quirks' some japanese can have, Such as though they are normally polite, if they dont make eye contact with you they may intentially ignore you completely, this is rather scary

I'd like to visit someday, but at the same time I'm nervous. I know a lot of people who have gone to Japan and the cultural differences and attitude towards Westerners is very, very daunting. Especially because of the influx of Japanophiles - the Westerners who's only view of Japan comes through anime and through that they become obsessed with the culture. Without understanding it in the least. So while I do want to go, I don't plan to until I have a much better grasp of the culture than I do now.
