Are people nice in Japan?

Yesterday I went to have a colonoscopy test in Montreal, Quebec. In the hospital, the doctors were nice, but some of the receptionists were surprisingly rude. At the main entrance, the people behind the counter were very nice, but the people on the same floor of the treatment were not nice at all. They made me feel sick.

I had some experience in hospitals in Hong Kong and China and Japan, too. I thought I was treated reasonably well there, but I realized that I had been treated super nicely.

People are very nice in Japan. That is one of the most beautiful things in Japan.

There are some nasty people in Japan, too, but it is same in any country. Generally speaking, most Japanese are honest and kind. Especially people working in shops, hotels, restaurants, they basically are very nice and thoughtful, and in hospitals, off course.

Why do I blog in English?

I have been blogging since 2015, talking about the life, languages, travel, wine, football and so on. All of them are written in Japanese. I didn’t have any idea to write in English until 5 days ago, because my writing in English is not good enough.

What made me change my mind was a small comment to one of my blogs.

Why did I start writing on "Medium"

A couple of months ago, I started writing in English which is my second language. I posted some blog articles on this platform "Blogger" which is one of my favourite blogging services. But I started writing on "Medium" two weeks ago.

Now I just want to write down why I started writing there, not here, and also where I am going to write in the future.
