Cool Japan 3
Many times people asked me why I love Japan. Up till now I still get the same questions by people I met online, friends and by other bloggers. That’s why I decided to write this post 🙂 Of course I’m happy to share with you the reason why I love it and think it’s cool^^

Well it all started as mentioned in Cool Japan 1. But I’m not too sure if there’s a definite answer to this question. There are a lot of reason to it. When I think about it, maybe it’s because of the cuteness or ‘KAWAII’ factor! Japan seemed to have given me this impression and I don’t see these in my hometown ^^ Probably that makes Japan an attractive country.
For example, Japan is a very visual country, I would say. They have many cute pictures or illustrations around the streets that can be seen on signboards or notices. It certainly make reading signs more interesting^^
The effect is that the whole scene of the street becomes very lively and not just a plain old boring concrete jungle with nothing but traffics and congestion.
These signs are very well illustrated that you don’t even need to see a word or explanation to understand them.
So were you able to understand them? The pictures paint a thousand words.
Of course, Japan is also home to many of the world’s most famous characters.
These are some of the famous characters in Japan. Do you guys know of any other famous characters of Japan? Look at the designs, they’re pretty simple don’t you think? Yet they’re able to capture the hearts of many people. Such is the magic of Japanese character designs, simple and attractive 🙂
Of course these may not be the best answers for why I love Japan and why I think it’s cool as there are no right or wrong answers. At least you get the picture^^
I will be posting more on these topics and this post is generally to answer the question ‘Why You Love Japan?’
Now, it’s my turn to ask you, why do you think Japan is cool and why do you love it? Would like to hear from you guys.
Until then, see you 🙂
