Traveling Japan, it is easy to see that everything is well ordered. Even for a country that is so well known in terms of allowing nature and modern construction to co-exist, most of the natural experiences within Japan are curated, careful to avoid the look of decay, wild overgrowth, or chaos. In contrast, within the ground of temples and sacred areas, wildlife frolic, plant life grows unchecked, and the separation between nature and modern life is blurred. This is not to say that the most important areas of temples and shrines are not well kept, but that you can find a secret world where nature finds a way, even in a society that seeks to control it everywhere else.
While Japan is known as a busy and confusing land, filled with technology, amazing food, bright lights, and friendly people, few people actually know of the Omiyage or gifts given when you travel. While the western world does have something similar in souvenirs, Omiyage are different in a number of ways.
While fans of All Time Low will likely remember them best for songs like "Dear Maria: Count Me In," "I Feel Like Dancin'," and "A Love Like War," their newest album showcases the dedication and talent that they have to their craft.
