    I always bring a handkerchief for my hands to public bathrooms. I don't like the blowdryers that take ages to dry your hands, or the flimsy paper towels that turn to mushy shreds (if there even are any - they tend to run out). A clean handkerchief is a lot nicer! :>
    Also, not taking off your shoes indoors is gross.

    A field of pitfalls :)))
    I agree mostly with all "chopstick routines" but completely disagree with "no clean your nose in a public transport" and "don't eat while walking"... If it's not a crispy cookies then why not? :) I can eat an apple or drink a juice while walking without littering even a bit. And usually I take few plastic bags with me to take litter in a garbage.
    And "don't cross a road on red" is stupid... I agree it's the national thing but we're violating this about 1-2 times per day. Especially when the road is short and clearly no cars in visibility (~100m).
    I'm not shouting "let's violate all of this!" :) It's just "IMO" things.

    hahaha that´s all , dude travel to bulgaria , first when you visit someone always bring something with you some pralines or a bottle of wine , something little but nice , they will tell you ten times that they can´t take it , you must insist after the 10th time they will agree to take it as a gift , if you stop insisting before that will annoy them , then you have to eat no matter what you can tell them 20 times you can´t or what ever they expect that and think o.k. he must do that , don´t accept the meal after the second time they ask it must be around ten times aprox. eat everything that is important otherwise you will annoy the women who cocked it .
    if you have a date , never ever let the woman pay , that will make a joke out of you so don´t accept it ( they know that but there are the usual ten times and so on ) if she says 6 times no i will pay and you say yes because you think 6 times is enough you will probably never see that woman again .
    these are some basics but it goes much further .
    don´t ever carry a back pocket for money it will mark you as a tourist and automatically as a victim for the well trained gypsies they will empty your pockets if there is something in just out of curiosity what it may be .
    don´t start flirting with very beautiful women you usually would not get in contact with , be realistic nothing has changed you are only in a foreign country so know your league otherwise you could end up naked on street bank , don´t believe that they don´t know english german french or russian these languages are basic in bulgaria´s schools but they pretend not to know just to hear what you will say about them to your friends .
    never go into gypsy areas and or turkish ones , the police does not do it too so don´t try to be smarter then the police , vice versa if you see bulgarians beat the shit out of those two groups stay away don´t try to help just mind your own business.
    And so on and on and on

      As an aside, Japan was quite a bit slow to adapt smartphones. And that's because their phones already had such robust features (since everyone had to text, and keep busy on the trains without talking on a phone), that it wasn't seen as something that needed to be replaced right that second like all the really @%%# mobile phones in the US, for example, that were basically just phones with a very limited extent of other features.

    • redfish337
      redfish337 4 часа назад

      It's quite unfortunate that they called them smartphones... which shortens to phones... so that people just call them phones even though they are basically personal computers. No calling. Don't use the phone feature of your device.

He would take a 12 hour flight to England and spend his stay in his room. I would try my best to make him feel welcome when he and my aunt came to visit but he would always seem very quiet and sometimes wouldn't speak at all even when spoken to. my aunt would translate to him what we said despite him being able to speak perfect English himself. I'm glad they are divorced now he was an asshole haha.

  • Kate Goldkamp

    For #1, there’s usually small streets/towns or festivals with food stands that makes it more acceptable to eat/drink and walk at the same time! It is more acceptable to drink and walk at the same time but you should never eat and walk!

      Being overly opinionated can come across as VERY rude especially to people with a higher status than you (aka an elderly, parent, boss, anyone older than you even by a year, etc.) A common phrase in Japan is “えんりょう” (En-ryo-u) which means to put your desires and opinions aside so you don’t come across as rude. Being a girl who was raised in Japan and now living in the US, this is something that effects me on a daily basis! Because of the etiquette of not saying your opinions, I’ve been “conditioned” to basically not have desires or opinions. During debates in classes or when my friends ask me what I want to drink at their house, I’ve noticed my first thought is “I don’t care” or “whatever is easiest”. This thought is inside of my brain constantly so I can make sure that the others aren’t suffering or are upset about my actions! How wild LOL

    • Kate Goldkamp
      Kate Goldkamp 15 часов назад

      Also for public transport, they have a special mode on phones called “manner mode” that basically silences the phones! You can use it to send texts or play games but you should never talk on the phone on public transportation. Another interesting thing about cell phones in Japan is that even if the phone is silenced, the camera shutter sound will ALWAYS go off! This is to prevent the prevalence of perverts who try to take pictures underneath girls skirts especially in crowded trains or busses!

    • redfish337
      redfish337 5 часов назад

      Topic is the phone. No noise. There are even notices up these days reminding people to make sure that their headphones are not leaking music. No noise. Use the handheld computer we (unfortunately ambiguously) call phones these days all you want. No calls. If someone calls, all you can do is embarrassingly pick up as soon as possible and in a hushed voice say that you're on the train and will call them back ASAP.
      If the topic is NOT your devices, then sure, a certain amount of noise is allowed. It's not like you can't talk at all... nor is it like you're at the movies where you can talk a little bit but your leash is limited before other patrons get annoyed. It's more like a fancy restaurant. Regular, moderated conversation is fine... but pretty much any noise from a device or phone conversation is frowned upon
      And you see, while the device noise is almost universally frowned upon... your allowance for other noise greatly depends on the kind of train and where you are in the country. A commuter train deep in the countryside taking essentially a whole high school back to their home stations was noisy as @$!#%. Many of them were playing games on their devices, and not a beep or boop was heard from them. And no one was talking on their phones. It was all just lively chatter you'd expect from high school students.

    Thank you for making this video. Unfortunately, there's one rule in Japan I wish didn't exist, because it's existence has prevented me from even going to the country. I take medication for extreme chronic pain on a daily basis, but in my research on potentially taking a trip to Japan, I found out they are very, very strict about certain medications, seemingly EVEN if I have a doctor's note explaining that I have been on the medication for more than 5 years. It's very frustrating, because I want to go to Japan more than anything in the world. Any advice on this? Is there some way to visit Japan and still be able to bring my medication over? I would appreciate any insight you can provide. Thank you.

      He would know better, but in my impression, the difference isn't so much in your core group of family and friends. It's that in the West how freely you share your inner thoughts kind of gradually goes down as you go further and further out from your core group. In Japan there's a bit more of an in or out wall going on. It grades down from their inner circle toward their outer circle, and then just drops off much more significantly. Not to say that Japanese won't talk about deeper stuff and opinions to outsiders of their circle if prompted, but it's much less likely to be offered without prompting like some quite chatty and opinionated employees around these parts. And a much more sizable minority do indeed not want to talk at all.
      As a foreigner, you're actually advantaged into getting into the outer circle for many of them, which makes it a lot easier to more freely give out opinions and have them be accepted well. But you probably won't be able to get much further in.

      To be clear, public debate is done in a place where this can be hosted. Debate in streets public centers is okay if simple and quiet. But if you argue, you are going to make a scene.
      You want to be respectful to the public.

      Gensuke Haneda 8 часов назад

      Actually, a lot of times this tends to be how many learn. It is not that we do not speak our mind this is an exaggeration. To put this way, in public places everyone does not need to know everything you think all the time. At times if you say "this is cool" or "that is stupid", we do this too. Because the logic is if we did not we would not know what people like. But it is kind of considered rude to do this so much. If someone say "we get the point already!" they are annoyed with you a little.
