We’ve really enjoyed looking at the people who are coming to the temple there’s lots of Japanese school groups, and then at this temple. We’ve seen a number of young women dressed in kimonos, and that’s always. So much fun at every turn there’s something really beautiful, and incredibly photogenic the garden complex at the temple of the Golden Pavilion is an example of the classical age of Japanese garden design with a highly intentional relationship between buildings, and their landscape settings we learned that Kyoto was one of the few large cities in Japan really untouched by bombing in World War two it has a nice really a beautiful combination of new buildings, and ancient buildings and I love the contrast between the new, and the old.

So many great little experiences that you can’t pick your favorite one the Land of the Rising Sun what experiences lay ahead for you here on a journey to this ancient island nation we set off to see temples, and shrines, and we ended up by having such a wonderful time just interacting with the people Japan is a beautiful country filled with very very polite people we knew we would enjoy this trip you.
I had a kind of feeling because. I looked very different from other Japanese, and my mother, and father looked very Japanese so I had a feeling but when.
I asked one but with their face. I understood. This is not something to talk about, and in Japan, it’s very group oriented country, and especially my childhood we didn’t have much mixed blood so.
I was very different, and for Japanese something different was not really acceptable my was born in Yokohama. I got married and I have a son who is now in university, and since. I was only child too but my son is also an only child sometimes.
I have too much attention to my son, and there was a some time he didn’t like me around of course when he was a teenager but now after that he’s been very helpful, and especially. I’m not home a lot of time he’ll be very happy to spend some time in my holiday. So now we have a very good relationship my father is now retired from the airline, and he spent all most of his time at home but also he chose this place.
Because he liked the ocean, and the port. So now he’s um enjoying the retirement life quietly. I was bullied in my elementary school time the most shocking thing was when.
I found my desk was gone there’s about desks lined up in a classroom, and there’s the empty space and I felt like they don’t like me even existing, and then. I really felt isolated and I started wondering why. I’m existing and I didn’t go to school for the last one year because.
I was afraid to go to school, and find something. I was more open, and active in a younger age but. Because of that.
I get very sensitive about what other things. So that bullying experience kind of impact my personality and I got over it. I started to chill a little while ago, and kind of.
I had a complex like. I can’t be good at music. I always had a kind of negative mind but.
I started okay it doesn’t harm anybody. I don’t have to tell anybody so I wanted to challenge something.
I really love and I always loved the music sound of cellos so I decided okay. I’m going to try something for myself, and my teacher often gave me some advice, and it’s very important to even you’re not confident you have to look on. How you have a confidence, and that sounded like advice to not do my cello skill felt like she knows my characteristic.
I thought oh playing cello you can see the personality and I could see my weakness, and the strength through cello when I found out about my background of course. I was interested in what my biological father was like, and since.
I was in u. s. my mother contact him, and gave me a chance to meet him and I said okay he’s big that’s why. I’m tall and I can understand okay now.
I could see. I had some blood from him that’s why. I look non-japanese for a few months.
I didn’t know. How to face my father now. Because okay he’s not my father so I had to kind of hard to face him like.
I was before but after a few months. I said to myself well. I can’t say he’s not my father anymore for us all my life.
I thought he was father so I said okay he’s my father, and that’s wrong he was a really good father reliable, and when I needed help he will notice without saying, and he will support me without saying anything he’s very quiet but very thoughtful very loving father.
I took a while to pass my exam as a national guide, and then. I finally got the license and I joined the freshman’s training and I met my best friend Shizu in the training now she is kind of almost like a family. So through her.
I learned what the hospitality is, and what small thing makes difference to the people’s emotion, and being just with her she will give us a very positive energy especially in work sometimes it doesn’t go like you want it to be or you struggle we were always helping each other encouraging but also giving advice since when I was small. I often came here so.
I come here. I feel really home and I can get my energy back, and it give me some kind of power to make a decision because. This is the Japanese culture of being very close to the their neighbor, and group, it’s hard to accept the other but once they accept they will be very very helpful.
So that doesn’t mean they won’t accept you for whole your life you just need a little time so I think even with the negative part still. I like Japan, and of course.
I like my people. I’m Mara Kolkata from Yokohama Japan. I’m a trip leader of OSE Japan’s cultural treasure my name is Toshi you know Gucci.

I work as a true leader at the same time. I study myself old, and the middle, and modern history of Japan of course we’ll visit the famous, and beautiful sites or the our temples but also. I try to include the other fees which can be a very memorable to the progress Japan has the very long history, and of course the very beautiful nature and I find that the travelers are very much impressed with the beauties of the Japanese gardens the buildings or the statues of the Buddha killaby of course is one of the most beautiful gardens in Japan the cherry blossoms the bloom for only short while at most eight weeks, and it’s gone this fits to the Japan’s people to sentiment please come, and visit them.
