    Japan has a lot of interesting little snacks.
    These are very rare in other countries.
    The character of Japanese snacks is very light taste.
    Perhaps, light taste  is in order to avoid the obsession with food.

    Look at Japan from plane, very green, very high forest cover.
    Japan has very rich forest resources and water resources.
    Geothermal resources are also everywhere here.
    This is a magical place…
    In many ways, it is not the same like KaKa know Japan before…

    Today is Christmas.
    Merry Christmas my friends all over the world!

    There are many 100Yen(about 1 USD) shops in Japan.
    You can buy every thing with 100 Japanese Yen in the 100Yen shops.
    This is 100 Japanese Yen plastic  boiled egg molds, 100Yen for two.
    Very interesting: rabbit shape and bear shape
    Japanese people has strong spirit of products innovation.
    How can I use it?
    KaKa try…ha, a rabbit egg!
    A bit ugly, doesn’t matter.
    Maybe next time, KaKa can make a pretty one.

    Japanese Mikado Palace is not allowed to enter.
    Many tourists visit the Palace outside court.
    There is a famous bridge road leading to the palace, Nijubashi Bridge.
    The bronze statue outside the Palace is very like European bronze statue.
    Only one thing different, the character is a Japanese Samurai.
    Tourists are all here to take pictures.
    We heard, inside the huge palace inhabited by only two people Mikado(the emperor) and his mother.

    On the way, we see the Japanese Diet.
    The Parliament building has a very high barrier, to prevent the impact of the Parliament.
    So high barrier, very interesting!
    In the street there also have many lovely electric motorcycle.
