10 things I love about Japan April 27, 2009

Posted by lumierre9 in chit-chat.

1. high-speed internet connection (can reach about 10 Mbps download speed – measured by speedtest.net)

2. almost everything is high-tech and automated…one new thing I just knew about here is the automatic lamp…whenever there’s no one in a room for some period of time, the lamp turns off by itself, and as someone is detected entering the room, it turns itself on…looks like Indonesia’s technologies have been left several years behind…

3. pedestrians are highly appreciated…whenever a pedestrian crossing the street, cars will stop, because the driver will get a very high penalty if his/her vehicle hits a pedestrian…so contrast with Indonesia…I’ve ever had an experience where I crossed the street in a zebra cross and an angkot almost hit me >___<

4. it’s fast and easy to go to lots of places by train…

5. I got a cell phone with just 0 yen (980 yen actually because I still had to buy the charger)…and actually I can get an iPhone if I want to, but I tried it and it’s not user-friendly for typing so I decided not to take it ^^

6. Softbank cell phone provider gives unlimited free call service from 1 AM to 9 PM to another Softbank carrier (what if an Indonesian provider gave this service? ^^)

7. the bureaucracy is simple here, oppositely with Indonesia which adopts the “if-it-can-be-done-difficultly-why-does-it-have-to-be-simple” system ^^

8.  people can queue here in order…no matter how long the line is, but they can wait patiently, not like in Indonesia ^^

9. a lot of interesting place here, to play or just for sightseeing…

10. you can pay for lot of things (bills, etc) just at a convenience store…

if i should add one, people are seated on rock concerts! not all concerts, but i often see lines of seats on rock concerts in japan. no victims of being stepped over, i guess. wheeew!

2 –> Di Kalbe ada kok yo, lampu macam begitu, di toilet, di lift.

compared to your 10 things you hate,
that’s why I choose to go there, someday hopefully, just to visit and not be a part of Japan. ha5. everything will be look very beatiful, coz I only visit, better not knowing the deep inside. aka, vacation. akaka.
hopefully you’ll enjoy more things there.
