Japan is the only place where I could find industrious and marvellous skyscrapers and the breath-taking historical shrines and monuments in one single view. A country where the love for each other and compassion fills in the city. The culture which can make you fall in love with the country in one go. The discipline and the organization with which everything is done, is indeed something that the whole world should learn from Japan. The hard work that everyone does here indeed reflects in some of the greatest technologies and knowledge that the country has gifted to the progress of the world.By the Odaiba bay, you can always sit and I am pretty sure you will forget all worries of the world. I cannot fail to mention the food of Tokyo, this is indeed the best food I had anywhere else. The amount of effort everyone puts in whatever they are doing is something that inspired me a lot. Research culture in University of Tokyo was something that I am going to cherish for the lifetime. The lab members were always ready to help me out and kept me encouraged throughout.
As I can recall, one of my seniors told me before I came here that even 100 lives are not enough to get over Tokyo. I now realize how true he was!
