Japan 2016

I went to Japan for two weeks with my family over a month ago, and it was one of the most exciting trips I’ve ever been on. Japan is such an orderly, secure and clean country. People are incredibly respectful, and they go above and beyond to offer you help. I’ve tasted the freshest sashimi and the most tender beef (also the most expensive). I’ve conquered their intimidating transportation system and traveled on their bullet train. I even tried their toilet seat sprays ;)

The Japanese has a strong spirit and is an inspiring example of the people doing their share for their country. Everyone is united in the respect they have for their land and their work tasks.

For the first time, I actually got a culture shock when I came back home to Canada. I thank Japan for their hospitality towards tourists.

Here is a brief video of our trip!
