Every single time I leave base {and sometimes even while I'm on base} I think to myself, "I love _____ about living in Japan".  Japan has truly become a 2nd home for me and I never ever want to forget these feelings of love and admiration for this great country, so I've decided to start a new series here on my blog.  I sat on this post for a few weeks trying to come up with a clever title for this series but kept coming up empty handed, then this week I noticed I used the hash tag "#ilovejapan" on multiple photos on instagram so thus a title was born.

Each week {hopefully on Monday} I'm going to share 5 things I love about living in Japan.  I'll probably repeat a few, but I shall try my best not to.  Some of these will have pictures to go along with the post, others may not, but I look forward to looking back on all these things once we leave this wonderful country.  Here is week 1:

1. bowing instead of hand shaking at the end of sporting events

this was at a little league game {1st-3rd graders} and I almost died from the cuteness

2. HOT chocolate from a vending machine

3. BOOKS in a vending machine

4. yakitori and Coke in a bottle at snack time

5. signs {this one will be a repeat I'm sure, with different signs}
no running

It is awesome that Japan has become "home". I love that you've fully embraced it.

Agree very much with #2 and #5 ha. How did we live without the awesome vending machines here? :]
