Why write about Japan? Well my love affair with Japan came about all because of watching a Kung Fu movie “The Street Fighter” starring Sonny Chiba. I knew Sonny Chiba well before I had heard of Bruce Lee and I marvelled at the landscape and the the cultural contrast, the wide gastronomy, the now manga world and pop culture.
The Japanese history with its romanticism of the Gheisas, Samurais and Yakuza, the beautiful Buddhist and Shinto temples, and the country of the rising sun and you were wondering why I want to write so much about Japan.
I will write more on this subject later
