What I like about Japan
Serendipitous surprises–you do not know what you will find just around the corner, and even after 25 years of living here, I still find things that astonish and delight me. Professional attention to detail–when setting up a meeting or making arrangements for an event or project, you are assured that people will follow through and carry out tasks to the best of their ability.
