How my love for the country came to be

In 2010 my family got transferred to this beautiful country, a nation which, before my visit I had never found an interest in. But from the moment I stepped on the nation of the rising sun, I fell in love with all of its aspects.

We lived in the 19th floor of The Entente, a hotel-like apartment complex located in artificial island called Rokko Island, named after the mount Rokko that shadowed the inland. It was a perfectly small, international, modern world within a country that had a lot more to show

This island was an hour away from some of the most beautiful sites in the entire country; Osaka, Kyoto, Nara,...

Meiji Castle in Osaka
Inari Shrine in Kyoto
Historic site in Nara with a sacred deer (the entire city is filled with deer, considered sacred and therefore allowed to roam around)

Regardless of how close we were to these amazing cities, we thankfully traveled to further sites, all worth seeing, including Tokyo, Hiroshima, Miyajima,...

Japan's capital; Tokyo, with Mount Fuji in the distance
Hiroshima peace gardens, built after the dropping of the bomb
Miyajima's shrine, famous for the changing tides

Before we continue with this narration, let's learn a little about its history...
