About the blog – “One step ahead”

A lot of people in this world have probably heard about the country called Japan and may know about famous cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, etc. and some popular Japanese food. Others may think of the Japanese economy during the era of high economic growth when heard about Japan. There are so many attractive aspects of our country that have not been discovered by the world yet, whether those are related to our culture, regional cities, or the spirit of life. Through my journey in other parts of the world, I have strongly felt that we could do more about telling the world the value of our culture and unveiling attractiveness of smaller regional cities in the country. Sometimes it is hard to get rid of stereotypes that you have with our nation but I hope this blog will provide an opportunity to learn deeper about the country and look things differently in a positive way.
