I was walking in Kyoto Imperial Palace Park when I heard yelling from the bushes. I walked towards the sound and between the branches I saw young Japanese men in a sports field wearing white and gold baseball jackets. They were just like the most badass characters in American high school movies.
I got fancinated and went closer. The boys were carrying the icon of professional baseball players by their appearance. It was in sight that they were proud to represent the sport.
Later I got to talk with the young men. They told me that baseball is the most popular sport in Japan. America seems to inspire the country by several ways.
