I've had bad experiences before where I was singled out (through no fault of my own) except for being in the wrong time and at the wrong place. I have also had some pretty great experiences with Japanese police who went out of their way to see the right thing done on my behalf. No point in being all bitter and disgruntled over mistreatment... it happens everywhere, regardless of where one lives for any number of reasons. Worst case scenario, I was inconvenienced for a few hours tops. If nothing else it gave me a few good stories to share with my friends. Why take it to heart and let it simmer bitterly? Take the good with the bad and just roll with it... When the time comes for me to leave Japan for good, I certainly won't dwell on the few bad experiences I have had.
Hmmmmm good point and I do that but again and again, the pigs get in my face simply because I have white skin. If you see the original complaints I related to here and then for the episode on the bicycle to happen.... I only have so much patience?
