Japan

In Japan, I could easily get lost in translation the way I got lost in the subway train a few times. I only know a handful of Nihongo like moshi-moshi, arigato gozaimasu, and hai, words I could easily count with my fingers hehe. But I guess two of the most important words I learned were tatemae or the presentation of your public self and hone, how you really feel. I heard my kababayans’ stories, they all look very happy, but I can sense there’s always pain behind their smile.
