Japan is comprised of 11 main islands and was a very interested country to visit. Even though Japan is crowded it is probably the cleanest country that I have ever visited. Strangely, trash receptacles were hard to find. People just take their trash home with them for disposal later. The Japanese people are very polite and very friendly. They have an excellent train system and a very complex road system. However, it seems that most major roads are toll roads so driving is expensive in Japan. It is also interesting how every piece of real estate is put to use. Houses have some flowers and shrubs but should there be more land with the house, you will find a vegetable garden or a rice field. No land is wasted. Indeed, Japan was a delight to visit with friendly people and historic sites.
