I will probably never make it to India or Japan but Japan surfaced again as a place I might like to see. I always have been more drawn to India in my heart of hearts. Bright colors, dusty poverty. Reading in a book on haiku, I learn that Indians traditionally believed impermanence meant less importance. Japanese people traditionally think impermanence is beautiful. That is the one reason that I am more interested in Japan. They see impermanence as I do.
