☆  fascinate  魅了する


If something fascinates you, it interests and delights you. This week’s quote is from Roman Coppola, “The Japanese culture fascinates me.” What do you think it is about Japanese culture that fascinates him? 

Imagine you meet a foreigner in Japan, and they asked you what fascinated you about Japan. How would you answer? For me, in Tokyo especially, the mix of old and new fascinates me. It still amazes me to be walking through the big city of Shinjuku and Harajuku, and then suddenly come across the Meiji shrine. It is so unexpected and such a contrast from the city and concrete, it totally fascinates me. What fascinates you about Japan?
