Visual Journal of Japan

I have been to many places in Europe and Asia but Japan is quite unique. They have many social rules like not eating while walking or saving your trash or not showing your teeth. Their culture was closed off for an extensive period of time to transform western products into their own cultural creation. Such as being the master of line-up for the trains or driving can be so peaceful. The Japanese have mastered being kind and considerate. The following images are my thoughts and journey and realizing there is no correct way, it is all about acknowledging each human and their social perspective.

Each sketch was on an index card with a sharpie pen.
