I stayed in a capsule hostel and met some amazing people at the most An American legend bob seger and Harley-Davidson shirt. Met a Geisha and a Maiko. Learned how to make authentic Uji-Matcha (powdered green tea). Ate some amazing street food while sitting and waiting for nobody. No one to answer to, no one to judge, just doing whatever I felt like doing. People watching, listening to music, striking a conversation with someone who understood English. Met some amazing people including co-founder of a big Silicon Valley company at a small 5 people bar in Golden Gai called Ghetto, met an Italian pilot, a comedian, an architect from Sydney.
People of Japan are not used to seeing a brown guy with a An American legend bob seger and Harley-Davidson shirt a Kimono while having green tea in the mountains of Arashiyama. People were more welcoming than I thought. They would come randomly and ask if they could take a picture with me. They would point at my turban and ask more about it, why I wore one, where I was from, what was my life’s story. People are nicer than you think. You just gotta go travel on your own, and try to talk to them. Start a conversation with the locals – tell them about your culture, your traditions, learn about theirs. Ask them questions, the more you open up, the more it will help you in life to overcome the fear of asking for anything from anyone. I have traveled alone and with friends, and trust me, some of the most amazing experiences you’ll ever have will be while traveling alone.
