I think it is a culture where people will always be very nice and polite but often it's hard to "get in" (ie. if you're a foreigner you tend to be an outsider). She has found some good friends, though (both Japanese and foreigners). She has said she couldn't possibly live in London, where I live - too tough and cold and stressful. On the other hand, I think London is a super-diverse and accepting city, and I wouldn't find that in the same way in Japan.
    I wonder if they have any slamming doors there

    It's such a high-tech country! When INFJs in Japan want to doorslam, it probably has to be an...emotion-sensitive whooshing on silent silver wings door, or something like that. (The toilets practically sing and dance.)

    Trying to remember which of the decaf teas I've found to be the best so far. They do tend to be disappointing. Edible, but disappointing. I think the Marks and Spencer one was pretty good...must try it again.

    I LOOOOOVE WHITTARDS!!!

    You live in Thailand, right? Do they have Whittards there or have you found it in travelling? They are all over the UK. As well as awesome tea, they make really nice plates, mugs, teapots etc etc and the prices are great.

    Oh you lived in London! THat's awesome. And great that you can get it in Thailand. Fortnum and Mason is lovely, but expensive! I'm more likely to shop there if I want a nice gift for someone

    love their classic tea bag selection, always get that, they have the royal, queen anne, darjeeling,
    breakfast, afternoon and my fave earl grey classic--which is wonderful to make earl grey cupcakes
    with lemon frosting. mmm soooo fragrant.

    Hmm, I might just have to hit FOrtnum and Mason soon. I haven't bought much tea for a while. Partly because I had a lot. But after I move house in a few days, I can start buying a few things again. Like more varieties of tea.

    So many teas to try now! I dunno if anyone posted Hibiscus tea, but it tastes a lot like cranberry juice when you put sugar in it except its not really tart. Its delicious.
