In Tokyo, the fineness old traditions and the latest high technologies work together perfectly. That could give us the feeling that we are close to a crossroad where time doesn't exist anymore.
Sometime only one meeting changes a travel. Near of Senjo-ji Temple my destiny was to meet a very old man who gave me few references about his ancestral Japanese culture. To start a better understanding he told me that could be great to read “Zen and the chivalrous art of archery” from M. Herrigel. So after that, I read this book until the end of my stay. It talks about an ultimate quest.
Maybe we could keep in mind a lot of things about it but for me one of them makes an echo especially with this culture, it talks about the way to get a knowledge and how you have to manage a good balance between your own experience and what you can learn from the ancestors legacy.
