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.

I asked her about the money in advance just to make sure because we had a little crisis when we went to Vietnam last year.

I had a haircut in Japan

Medusa is a mythical creature in Greek mythology who has snakes instead of hair. Anyone who looks at her eyes turns into stone. My hair used to be like her hair.

I have been living outside of Japan for more than 15 years, but I never had a haircut abroad. I always have my haircut in Japan when I go back.

I have thick black hair. After it gets longer, it becomes automatically curly --like snakes. I hadn't had a haircut for almost two years this time. When it got wet after shampooing, it was like wet and twisting heavy seaweed which has just come out from the sea.


I went to the same hair salon which I go to every one or two years. My hairdresser who is a bit of a famous hair designer in my hometown still remembers me. After I sat down in front of the mirror, I said to him,

"Could you cut it boldly, please?"
"Boldly? Are you sure?" he said to me in the mirror.

I said, "Yes, please." He said,
"But you have beautiful wavy hair."
