Blogs Encounter with Japan Part 3

Now, having observed Japanese society, the way it was taught to control their emotional and physical demeanor, I am un-startled by their adamantly unshaken, orderly, ongoing trust in authorities.

Bowing projects a wonderfully charming sense of politeness and respect, but it does not end on just one bow, it goes on, and on.
