I’ve not visited Japan yet. I’m not sure if I ever will visit Japan. I know a little bit about its classic history, but I’m mostly familiar with a niche part of its contemporary culture, i.e. otaku stuff. It’s really dumb of me to focus on only that part. It’s like only knowing America for its fastfood restaurants. There’s so much more to it than that!
With that narrow stereotype in my mind, I can only realistically be disappointed by reality, I’m afraid. What I should be doing is widening my horizon and learning more about the world… I was never the travelling type, but I can still study the world around me through the literature ^^
