I think that's good that you find similarities in things that most people don't pay attention to. Perhaps the World would be a much better place if all of us developed that trait.

I recently visited the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens near Boca Raton and it made me feel like I was back in Japan. I highly recommend visiting if you're ever in the area.

Thank you for that! Never thought of it like that but if it would make the world a better place then it certainly would be a great treat. I tend to be to the point of OCD with the details.

I never knew that museum and Gardens was in Boca Raton, It will give me a reason to drive down there sometime. I would like to visit both of them. I use to like to go to the Japanese Gardens in Portland, Or where I lived before I retired to Florida. That's a beautiful garden to visit.

Hawaii was really the only state that actually made me feel like I was in Japan, people and culture wise. Even some of the signs are written in Japanese. People also compare California to Japan but I actually didn't think they were that similar.

I haven't been to the one in Portland but I've heard about it and seen pictures of it. The one in Seattle looks nice too.

Florida is the worst state I have visited in terms of local rudeness and have decided not to go back even for traveling. Georgia on the other hand is quite livable in metro areas. On the other hand, everyone raves about Japanese politeness.

So, it’s Georgia by default.

Neither is anything like Japan in any way. Strange question.

Georgia & Florida have no resemblance to Japan. I’ve visited all three numerous times.

I agree Florida is rather rude and the customer service leaves alot to be desired. Florida always has its hand out for money from tourist as well as residents. Yet it puts absolutely no effort into its quality of life or a feeling of sense of place. It is all about what can people do for Florida, with both its shady Government and far to many businesses.

Japan is polite for the most part, but all places have some type of issues. You can't escape it in today's world.
