Foxes are my guide animal. Whenever I’m struggling the most, they always show up somehow. I have several fox tattoos and I’m probably gonna get more. In January 2017 I traveled to Tokyo to get a TESOL certificate. I live in Mexico, so being in Japan is one of those once in a lifetime opportunity. That’s why I couldn’t let go the chance of paying a visit to the Fox Village.

There’s a train station in the Northeast suburbs of Osaka, Japan, which proves that man and nature can coexist in harmony. Its main feature is a giant camphor tree, stretching out through a hole in the platform. Officials believe that the tree is about 700 years old and its history is full of loving people and a little bit of superstition.

Japan Railways Build Turtle Tunnels

Japanese railroad companies recently installed a wonderful way to keep turtles safe when they try to cross their train tracks – a turtle tunnel that passes under the tracks. When crossing tracks, turtles can get crushed by trains or get stuck in track switches, causing delays. These tunnels solve problems for humans and turtles alike!

Never Leave Your Bed Again With This Awesome Japanese Invention

30 oct 2015 14:39

This is how the Japanese stay warm in the winter, or how you can stay in bed all day! The kotatsu consists of a blanket placed between a low table-frame and table-top, with a heat source placed underneath the blanket. With your legs placed under the blanket, someone wearing traditional Japanese clothing would have warm air come through the bottom of their robes and exit around the neck, heating the whole body.

Japanese tattoos are just plain beautiful. The Japanese are already artistic people in their own right, which makes sense why the tattoos that bear their style are the same way. The thing I like most about Japanese tattoos is that they can portray a story with a few simple visuals, pure brilliance. With a mix of beautiful color and delicate lines, these tattoos are magnificent. I hope you like what I found, I know I did.

May the force be with you! The 66th annual Sapporo Snow Festival kicked off today and the most impressive snow sculpture of all features Darth Vader, his three stormtroopers and TIE fighters.
