Why is Japan such an unpopular tourist destination?
by Rocknews 24 via Japan Today
Does this video make you want to visit Japan? You be the judge.
You would think that a country like Japan, rich as it is in both traditional culture and technical innovation, as well as plenty of weird and wacky things you’ll never see elsewhere, would be a huge hit with tourists. But as it turns out, Japan is actually not such a popular destination for people traveling abroad.

Recent happenings as I approach the final lap of living in Toyama
Day 2480 (Interstellar)
Friday, January 2, 2015
Watched one of the best movies I've seen in a looooong while. Interstellar. This totally geeked me out and took me to different world, pun intended for who saw it.
Day 2481 ( Hangingout with some Jamaican sisters )
Saturday, January 3, 2015
Just chilled with some of my friends for the evening
Day 2482 ( Ice Skating !!!)
Sunday, January 4, 2015
Tried ice skating for the first time. It was scary and fun at the same time. There was this 8 year old girl killing it on the ice. Even occasionally teaching us.
Day 2488 ( More Reggae in Toyama )
Saturday, January 10, 2015
Went to a not so bad reggae party today, after returning to Toyama from Yokohama. For the first time in my life of traveling, my flight got cancelled before actually getting back to Toyama. The reason? Heavy snow.
Day 2494 ( Japanese Calligraphy )
Friday, January 16, 2015
So yesterday, I was at work sitting and waiting for the clock to strike 4:15 so I could run home. Because this new term, the board of education decided to turn up the work and the amount of classes I teach. Suddenly, I got a call from this lady I promised that I would practice Japanese Calligraphy with on Sundays. Only to find out that the lady was already at the school waiting for me, to take me to a real calligraphy teacher without any form of warning, prior arrangement or anything. Is she stalking me? I was free so I decided to go. But ended up having to buy some stuff. A total of 4000 yen (US $40) worth of stuff that I didn't plan to pay for.
I complied because I was gonna have to pay for it anyway, whether now or later. I thought the calligraphy thing was easy before trying it but maaan its a challenge. And the teacher is strict.

Day 2507 ( Fake Facebook Profile )
Thursday, January 29, 2015
Woke up this morning to a message from a friend of mine saying she saw a pic looking like me on facebook, this is the pic
I looked on the pic long and hard... then it dawned on me... THAT IS ME !!! with a another name !!! But I am 100% sure I know who did it, or at least who is behind it. Oh boy. I will just leave it at that. It has since been removed.
On a another note, I found a friend who is skilled at drawing people. She drew a pic of my sister and her child.
Day 2517 ( JET Festival in Toyama )
Sunday, February 8, 2015
The J.E.T English teachers (if you don't know who they are, read my book) in Toyama put on a yearly festival thing with displays and stuff from different countries. I did a performance and also taught patois (Jamaican dialect) lessons to some people in Japanese. I was surprised that so many people came to the class. It was a good day. I realize now that almost every single time at these exciting events, I go back home with a headache that lasts for at least 2 days. That's if I don't take a tablet.
