I have not been to Japan until Oct., 2005, except for flight connection. Then I took two trips to Japan for an interview and job training in Oct. and Dec. last year. This time is my first time to Japan for a real tour.

During the Chinese New Year period, I took a trip to the country side of Japan to see the traditional part of Japan; it was a total different experience compared in Tokyo and it was so amazing to see the beauty of traditional Japan. The Japanese do find a balance between modernization and tradition; you won't feel the conflict between keeping the old culture and city development.

I think both of our tourism and cultural bureau should take a good look at what Japan have done and really get hands on their business, not only create some pretty slogans.
