You can't see Tao video / Tao Te Ching Chapter 14-1

When you visit Japan, would you still like to experience a mystic Orient? Well, if you have to pay a hefty amount of dollars or euros for your flight ticket, it may be an inevitable sort of wish. Oh, c'mon, you are better than that!
The moment you abandon the quest of a postcard image of Japan, the real Japan will start caressing your sense of beauty. The key word is a "juxtaposition".
A girl disguising a Manga character in a pink mini-skirt and rainbow coloured knee-high boots may be walking in front of an ancient sacred meditation site of medieval Zen monks.
