I came to Japan with a big heart, and fell deeply in love with the country. I saw beautiful landscapes, ate beautiful food, soothed myself in beautiful waters, and met beautiful people. I had no idea how beautiful a foreign land could be, and was not prepared for how smitten I would be. My heart grew away from home with each new experience. It’s a good thing, because when I left I had to leave some of my heart behind, and there it will stay, waiting for me to return to the land of the rising sun.

Sayonara Japan, until I see you again.
