Some people say that the world is going to be peaceful and others say the world is going to be bad and violently. I think the world is becoming violent now. There are two reasons which can prove why the world is becoming violently. The first reason is the relationship between North Korean and USA. The second reason is the situation of Syrian front.

While many tourists know all about Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka, and Hokkaido, not many people know about the prefectures at the bottom of Japan. No, it is not Okinawa. In fact, the smallest prefecture in Japan is near the bottom of Japan, in an area called Shikoku. This particular prefecture is called Kagawa. I personally have not been to Kagawa, nor passed through it before. However, there are many unique places and things to enjoy there. I will be introducing Kagawa’s signature dish, Sanuki Udon, Ritsurin Koen, Megijima Island, and a shopping arcade in Takamatsu city.
