Tokyo, Feb 2, 2020
Today’s tour truly warmed up my heart. My tour guests were very handsome couple from Mexico ( let’s call them Alex and Maria). They were newlyweds, arrived Japan just last night after the wedding ceremony only three days ago in Mexico City. They were commemorating the very first day of their one-whole month romantic journey in all over Asia, starting with Japan, Singapore, Cambodia, Thailand and the most romantic island - Bali in Indonesia. On top of that, it was Alex’s birthday today!!
So, I introduced them to the Japanese way of celebrating the Valentine’s Day. I told them that it was the very special day for girls to give boys chocolates, while boys would accept them if he liked her. ( he sometimes would say “no, thank you” if he doesn’t like her!!!). Alex and Maria were soooo excited!
Our tour turned out to be a chocolate hunting tour. Maria bought a Tower chocolate at Tokyo Tower, a beautifully designed chrysanthemum chocolate at Imperial Palace souvenir shop and Kaminari Okoshi Chocolate Crunch at Sensoji Temple. Each time she gave a sweet present, she confessed her love to him, and she was accepted. (Phew!)
At the end of the tour, I told Alex, “According to the Japanese custom, you will have to give her back as 10 times as good-present on March 14, the White Day.” Alex exclaimed, “Oh, no!” while Maria jumped for joy, shouting, “Oh! I love Japan!!”
It was surely a fun day!! Thanks to them, I learned how important it was to express love in word and in action to each other.
Come to Japan, and you can also find a special chocolate of your own to show your love and affection to your beloved one!
