Another way to Feel Life 人生を感じるための別の方法


Could you imagine a place where in less than an hour you can travel through time? That place exists and it is Japan. There you can get the latest brand new devices such as cameras, mobiles and consoles or you can enjoy an ancient entertainment like Buddhist monks praying in Kyoto.

One thing that has struck me most is their religion which is not a defined concept, because Japanese do not believe in a particular religion. Instead, they gather the features of many religions in their daily lives in a process known as syncretism. For example wedding ceremonies are usually conducted by Shintoism, otherwise everything related to death and funerals is carried out in Buddhism.

Nowadays lots of Spanish people are fascinated by the Japanese culture, in fact, there is an urban tribe called "otaku". They love reading Japanese comics (manga), watching Japanese series (anime) and dressing up as their heroes (cosplay). Maybe you think than they are weird but you have also watched some “anime” such as “Heidi”, “Dragon ball” or “Mazinger Z”.

Finally you should visit this country because you can enjoy different types of life and, as I told before, travel through the time.
