My holidays in Japan
In September 26 we went back to Japan. The first time we went there for 3 days, really weren’t enough. Now we decided to come back and to know a little more Tokio, and others cities like Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima. I’m really sorprised about Japan and its people.
All is very cleaning and the people are respectful with the environment and another people. You can breathe peace but not in the subway there was too many people although, there you do not hear screams or loud voices like in some cities in Europe.
I feel in love of Nikko and Kyoto, for me the best cities of Japan. Of course, the ones that I know now. I would like to back to Japan.

My holidays in Japan
On September 26th we went back to Japan. The first time we went there for 3 days, and this wasn’t really enough. Now we decided to come back and get to know Tokyo a little more, and others cities like Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima. I’m really surprised about Japan and its people.
Everything is very clean and the people are respectful with the environment and other people. You can breath in peace OR peacefully but not in the subway because there are way too many people although, there you do not hear screams or loud voices like some cities in Europe.
I fell in love with Nikko and Kyoto, which are my favourite cities in Japan. Of course, the ones that I know now. I would like to go back to Japan.
