  • Exceptional murals, bridges, truly memorable buildings.. Really worth a visit if you go to NY. You see the difference from Manhattan, Brooklyn and everything else...

  • I was surprised because the city was very safe and beautiful. It is recommended that you go check it out because there is something interesting, such as history before the devastation and how it became current. The Gospel in the church is not Japan.
