I met Nana in Australia, she's a Japanese girl traveling the world, we finished our adventure in Australia together. She brought me two times in Japan to meet her culture and her family. I discovered without real surprise that Japan was a country of great paradox, with extreme modernity and a very traditional vision of human behavior. You're ending up with a keyboard connected to your heated toilet seat and on the other side the Onsen (Japanese public bath) where you are going naked with other men or women. Technology and traditions going along perfectly, Japan is a beauty of contrast and good manners. Excellent food, calm, respect and hygiene were the main words of my time in the country.
