  • Really impressive images. I especially like the old man and the sleeping guy on the bench.

    About the description:
    “What Japan does not do well:
    * Web Design / Usage”

    I already recognized this, too. Whenever you come along a Japanese website, it usually does not seem pretty modern. You always feel like back in the 90s. Maybe I should mention my web programming skills when I want to work in Japan someday (even if my interest is robotics).
