Writing your learning script: Ingraining good and bad behaviours

How to gain more positive skills and unfuck negative mentality (How to level up and train your character part 4)

As a former ABA therapist who is trained and graduated in human behaviour and ABA therapy, psychology.
Rewarding and conditioning good behaviours with desirable rewards can become stale and ineffective.

I.e. Calling our children to table for dinner to be rewarded with foods they like or scolding them if they fail to come when called, does not seem to be winning strategy for obedience nor family time.

As an adult or teenager, we are aware of what makes us unhappy , using pavlov conditioning as an example, we come to realise that we are often stimulated and offered unconscious priming to be accustomed to society, advertising and seek immediate rewards when offered. I.e seeing the sign of MacDonald can make your kid excited, or another example being able to get what you desire when being exposed to an opportunity,…

Japan 2019 vs Japan 2017 Osaka and Tokyo: Are there real changes? (Sushi, ramen, shopping and shrines)

Japan's miniature Garden with large mini bonsai 2019

Tokyo could be covered within one or two days if you wish to cover the popular places, such as ikekuburo, tokyo, harajuku and all the popular shopping districts.
There are mini towns to visit along towards your destinations that mimics each other but brings a distinct flavor.

Shop + Eat +Travel?
It would be good to plan ahead so you could carry on your travels forward from Tokyo and hike the pretty mountains. If all you desire are pretty lights and good food, a short trip there is shibarashi.

Japan sky tower 2017

Japan Golden Tower river 2017

To go or not to go?
Go if you had yet to visit the place, visit the golden temple and take a photo with meiji man.
be entranced with the lights at night and grab a drink or even the 7-eleven there where there might be seats available in Japan.
Do not hurry to Japan if you had been there in the last two years, as it had been around the same since my last visit.

Still as good.
Tempura are surprisingly good and consistent compared to sashimi

2017 vs 2019: Not much changes.
Vending machine ramen, sushi, konyaku noodle, and deers to visit, sushi and sky tower.
Harajaku continues to be a hype that I am not keen on, there is alot of fluff and as a designer myself, if you are not into Japan style, it might not suite you.

As for the shrine experience, I had not visited many but had adored the fire shrine which is less mainstream and challenges yourself to climb uphill. There are free and small fees for different shrines, and there are several opportunities. I did not discover any vast differences between the years.

I had seen several abandon shrines traveling Japan that desensitizes my experience with the popular option being just shrines that are unabandoned.

There are lot of pretty flowers throughout the years, catching the sakura after peak was not as beautiful as it is in full bloom but still worth the viewing.

Regardless, if you love the japan culture, any time is  good time ;)
