    I have been helped thousands of times by random strangers here, so I know from first hand experience that Japanese people are very kind.

    I think Yuriko’s comment was a “grass is always greener on the other side of the fence” situation.  I think people who travel and have a good time in another country (she travels a lot) project that good feeling on to everyone in that country, and when they return home they start comparing their great experience with their everyday life.

    I know it is the same for me.  I am originally from Canada (a country with an image of being friendly) but when I visited Japan for the first time I felt it was so much more friendly. But it was just that I was used to Canada so it seemed boring and I just wanted to go back to Japan because it was new and exciting.

    Since this is a travel forum, the thing I would suggest is to come and visit Japan to see for yourself!  You already have some friends waiting here. 🙂
