Who says Japanese people cant speak their mind?
At least not the Japanese we met in Hakone who express themselves in i-adjectives.
When they see Red leaves,
They shout, Kirei ! Kirei!!! (Beautiful)
Sometimes they shout, Sugoku Kirei!! (Extremely Beautiful)
When they see Sakura, they shout,
In Hakone Open-Air Musuem,
When they see the 5th statue is way smaller than the other 4, they shout
When they see a sculpture spread on the grass,
When they see Picasso Musuem,
When they see glass wall below,
When they see the Hakone Tozan cablecar and ropeway,
Didnt shout, just rushed in.
But when they see the crater created by last volcano eruption 3000 years ago in Owakudani, with boiling river and sulfurous fumes,
When they see the pirates boat in Lake-Ashi,
When they see the jinja by the lakeside,
and again Kirei......
When they see Fuji-san.....
in the end of the day, everyone just got so sick of shouting i-adjectives, they didnt even bother to look.
