Japan, Land of the Rising Sun for The Travellist Magazine

Tokyo has hardly any big differences from any other big cities in the world with all its noise, heat, crowds, huge screens and luxury shops. In a big city, a human has no personality – like a cockroach, living in almost every building of this concrete hell.

Why don’t you emigrate?

Because no one needs you here. Actually, no one needs you anywhere, including your motherland. The only who needs you is yourself. So that’s why developing and creating yourself is the only thing worth doing, wherever you are.

Here in Japan, the Land of the Rising Sun, they have the ideal society of introverts, and here you feel your inner loneliness more than anywhere else. But accidentally, here you understand that your inner loneliness is the only treasure you really have.

Only by having merged with it can you really open your heart to the beauty of the world.
