Japan – Its Mountains and Cities

Written By Nik Halik

There is something special about the way Japan is able to offer something for everyone. There is the chance to see the history of the country and also the modern and forward looking country that Japan has become.

There are tours that you can book that will allow you to see the best of both sides of Japan and you can see the best sites available on the walking tours. If you manage to include two of the best known peaks here then you will have an exciting and interesting holiday to look back upon.

Walking holidays can be invigorating and enjoyable but if you do have walking difficulties or anything that may prevent you from walking for up to 8 hours a day it may be that you are going to miss out on the highlights of the tour.

The time spent in Kyoto can be spent in a number of different ways and it is considered to be one of the most interesting Cities in the East. It was not affected by either of the world wars so it is an ideal place to go to see the architecture of old Japan. There is the Golden Temple of Kinkakuji that dates back to 1397 plus the Imperial Palace. The chance to view Geishas should not be passed up either!

There will never be any problems when travelling by public transport in Japan as it will always be efficient and clean. It is easy to get from one place to another, and from Kyoto there is a fast trip to Kamikochi which lies in the Sangaku National Park and if you feel energetic, a trip into the Japanese Alps.

No climbing trip in Japan would be complete if it did not include Mt Fuji. There are now many people who make the trip to the summit, although it is as recently as 100 years ago that it was considered too important for the common man to make the ascent. Priests and pilgrims were the only ones allowed up there. Once at the top it will appear that you are a shrine – until you realise that there is also a post office, weather station and a 24 hour noodle bar at the top. Having seen sunrise at the summit you can begin the descent back down and plan the next amazing place you will visit.

Tokyo is bound to be the highlight of the tour and it is hard to belief that at one time it was a fishing village. It is so easy to travel around and you can take in the fish market, the temples and if you have not worn yourself out during the day, the night life here is second to none. For a good idea of the Temples in Japan you could visit Kaneiji Temple which dates back to 1625. At one time it was made up of 30 building s but many were lost as early as1657 in the great fire of Mereiki.

Add to this the food and hospitality and you will have a memorable vacation.

When to Talk and When to Listen

Written By Nik Halik

All of us can hope and expect to have a long and happy life and that while we are travelling along it we will be able to get on with fellow travellers. Sometimes people will want us to give them advice but more often than not there will be the people who want to give us the benefit of their experience. At first this may seem hard to take and we will not want to listen to their stories and will not believe that they have anything to tell usa. This may well be the case but sometimes they may just have a story to tell that could either help us or let us help them which could be what they actually wanted in the first place.

Sometimes it will be religion and the person talking to us really believes what they say. Unless you have strong religious views you may want to ignore them, but they could have something of interest to say. It could be the thing that changes your life. Even of you don’t want to follow the faith you may find something in the preaching’s that will help you develop personally. Just be listening you could also help the other person reach an important decision.

It could be that the person is looking for some meaning in their own life and want to ask your advice but are too proud or worried about how you will then feel about them. If you listen to their problems you may be able to help them and in some way you could both end up feeling better about yourselves.

If you find that the good stories help it will be a sensible idea to read up about positive thinking. It will not prevent the most serious of illnesses and it can’t radically change our living conditions but it can make us feel better on a day to day basis.

By firstly thinking positively we will be able to tell start acting positively.  As humans we are well and truly capable of knowing the difference between right and wrong and we can improve all areas of our lives. We all know when it is wrong to do things because they are going to be hurtful or dangerous but there are plenty of other times that we can make a choice to do something when the circumstances were not as serious.

We can decide to take a trip alone when in the past we may have been afraid or can join a club alone when we would have previously not have the nerve. Positive thinking can open up so many avenues for us. The wider the experiences we have the better we can make our lives and the more helpful information we can pass on to other people. Every life event will teach us a valuable lesson and hopefully we will never be the person trying to give advice when all we want is a shoulder to cry on or a friendly ear to listen to our woes.

How Helping People Make You Feel Much Better

Written By Nik Halik

In life there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving. When I reflect upon my life and business success, I would have to say that this is very true. I traverse the globe and continually immerse myself in a myriad of cultures and the one commonality I would say is that all people are the same. Yes, they may have a different skin color, they may dress differently than us but the joy on their faces when they do something special for another person is the same.  The smile that is radiated on their faces is priceless.

Write an email or letter and tell someone, maybe your mom, maybe your co-worker how much you appreciate them and why. Watch the joy you see on their face after they’ve read it and watch the joy you feel inside. It’s life changing. Imagine doing that every day, how much it would change your world and how much it would change theirs.

 I sincerely believe that we all are born with a purpose in this world and it is not only restricted to our own being. We are also born to make this world and even our society a better place to live in.
