Life in Japan【日本での生活】
Hey there, readers! Mook here again with another story time. Today, I wanted to share a bit about my thoughts on living in Japan.
The best part about living here is definitely the trains! Listen, I know we all complain about JR being late all the time, but even then, the trains in Japan are so efficient, clean, and for the most part, pretty on time. When I lived in Bangkok, my apartment was four kilometers from my campus. Do you want to guess how long it took for me to get to class? On a good day, it took 30 minutes by bus. On a horrible day, it took an hour. So, trust me when I say that Japanese transportation is a dream come true!
Another thing I love about being here is there’s no shortage of things to do. There are so many places to visit around Kansai from screaming through rollercoasters in my favorite theme parks to hiking up Mt. Rokko. There are so many cafes just around Kobe alone and that list keeps growing every time I walk past a new corner. That’s the exciting part, the city keeps changing and it challenges me to keep up with it.
But there’s a downside to that too. Things change so quickly sometimes that some of my favorite things end up not being there anymore. One of the changes that really bothers me is seasonal snacks. Yes, they’re new and exciting. But they’re only around for 3 months and then they disappear forever! A few years ago, there was a mint chocolate KitKat that came out in the summer and only in that summer. I never saw it again. If you find it, please let me know!
Thanks for reading my ramblings today. See you next time, readers!
