Went on a quick trip today to a small flower shop around the corner, with a friend, bought a beautiful cactus and left with some some free flowers, courtesy of the nice japanese store worker. I have never experiences such kindness like the one i’ve experienced living in Japan. The japanese are so welcoming with big smiles on their faces and a bow. Even if they don’t understand you (like the florist) they surprise you with more acts of kindness.
This is certainly something i will miss whenever we PCS.
