      Japan is a unique country with its beautiful architecture and contrasting culture compared to the United States. I think we can all agree that Japan is an interesting and extraordinary trip. So, here is my list explaining why I want to visit Japan, and why you should too. 1. The Stunning Architecture.   In , a US psychoanalyst, Allen Wheelis, published a book arguing that Freudian analysis had stopped working because the American character had altered.

Krys Suzuki, a former English teacher in Japan, says that’s not uncommon, and discusses why.   Students are also, vitally, allowed and encouraged to work while studying which is absolutely necessary for lots of travelling students. It can be quite cheap too! One year of tuition at a Japanese school or university costs, on average, about $6,USD. That’s half or even a third of what equivalent studies in the US or the UK would cost.

Japan is a literary loving to some of the most Japan--why it works bookstores in the world and arguably the first novel ever written. One of the best ways to get insight into the fascinating culture of the country is to read about it.

Whether it’s otaku nerd culture, political satire, real life stories or cafe hotspots you’re after here are nine books that will help give you some real.

5) They reward hard work The Japanese know you’re working hard, and they will work you hard. Yes, you’ll toil away, but they do reward you. The Japanese will pay you for over-time, pay you massive bonuses (6 months in some Toyota companies), and they love to party.

Earthquakes and tsunami Around 20% of the World's large earthquakes (over magnitude 6) happen in Japan.

Japan is probably the most earthquake resistant country due to engineering standards. 2.

So, let's take a look at the 20 reasons why you should visit Japan at least, these are the reasons that brought me to Japan. 1Q Haruki Murakami. Weird teenagers, religious cults, and small people crawling inside German shepherds: 1Q84 packs many of Murakami’s recurring motifs into this epic novel, which was originally packaged in three seems a simple story: Aomame and Tengo meet in school, are separated, and look for each other.

Japan Today asked foreigners “Why do you think Japanese work such long hours?” and received a huge amount of comments from people who had experienced life in a Japanese company.

1. Break Your Work into Little Steps. Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, then focus on one part at the time.

If you still procrastinate on the task after breaking it down, then break it down even further. Soon, your task will be so simple.
