    Hahaha....it is ok to call the waiter, if you have already chose what you wanted to order once a waiter passes by just call out to them, easy.
    And about the blowing your nose in public, that's strange cause lost of people blow their noses in to napkins, unless they didn't have a napkin to blow into

    A lot of Japan's unspoken and written rules seem good. I think the blowing your nose is better than letting is drizzle. Also I wish you could own firearms in Japan, but what do I care, I can do that here in the land of the free, and home of the brave.

    I really dont get how is it rude to jaywalk or blow your nose in Japan. I will blow my nose because im getting annoyed and cant deal with it. I know jaywalking is actually a big deal outside of a lot of large cities but I really dont get why me walking over the road saving my time and if the lights never have switch for me is also saving other peoples time.
    (A lot of people dissing USA in comments but if you go over to China people are way more rude and none caring compared to Americans. Chinese tourist can be the worst.)

    Is that the reason why there was a drunk old man who's passed out on the road in Tokiwa City(Viridian City in the English Dub) in the original Japanese versions of "Pokemon: Red & Green(1996)", and that the American localizers had censored it by just having him throwing temper tantrum like a child that he wanted coffee?

    The drinking one varies by coworkers, I have worked at companies where coworkers always go drinking almost every other day and somewhere it's only special occasions. Also, you can basically do whatever you want in the United States. People will typically just mind their own business and just treat you like you don't exist (fine by me).

    Calling on a waiter is actually not specific to Japan. It happens in most places in Asia that I have been to. However, I haven't been to many very upscale places in Asia. So its been mainly general restaurants and eateries. In America i believe it is acceptable to "hail" a waiter when s/he does a floor sweep of the tables they serve.

    I went to a Japanese school in Japan from age 11 till 22 when I graduated university and i learned right away to go to the bathroom and blow my nose.
    In the U.S. it's accepted to blow your nose, but when I did it in Japan people looked at me strange.
    I also developed asthma at age 12 and had to cough up phlegm but couldn't because of my classmates' disapproval.
    There was one thing I found in Japanese school that was quite the opposite of this. They almost never cover their mouths when the cough. That spreads a lot of germs quickly. So I don't see what's wrong with blowing your nose.
    Also I was and still am surprised at how they knock on a bathroom stall door even when you can see feet and the small indicator on the door lock says "In Use." I understand this now as a way of saying hurry up, I'm waiting, rather than checking if someone's in there. You are supposed to knock back when you're in the bathroom stall. It's common courtesy in Japan.

    What about chewing with your mouth open? I've met quite a few Chinese/

    I remember myself as the young Japan-crazed girl at the tender age of 8 telling my mother that I was NOT being rude and that in Japan slurping was polite and showed I appreciated her cooking skills... she reminded me then that I was not Japanese and to stop slurping the spaghetti before she smashed my face in it so I could "appreciate" her food more. Kinda messed up now that I'm older and think about it, but it still makes me smirk when I eat around her- I still do it just to annoy her. I'm an adult now and thus she can no longer hold me accountable for my dinner manners.

    About these things in the video: in Brazil it's exactly the same as in Japan. It's strange, because it's a country so far than USA. And Japanese also like to take a shower, which is very strong in Brazil (some people take 3 or 4 baths daily here, which I consider to be an exaggeration, nobody needs more than two baths a day).

    I'd be annoyed if I worked somewhere and people were just looking at me not saying or doing anything to get my attention besides starring,
    I would prefer people to raise there hand and just ask.

    I don’t know where you lived in America but drinking in public is not illegal where I live, calling the waiter isn’t rude, ect... maybe it was just the fact that you were from a more conservative state? Lol drinking with coworkers and bosses is also normal where I live 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • Gengarite1996
    Gengarite1996 21 день назад

    in America, at least the midwest, you just put the menu down and the waiter comes. when you're done with food, set the dish to the side of the table so they can clear it easily. try to stack for them. you dont treat people like some slave, yelling at them to do your bidding. It's a mutual act. you get served food, they get tip. that's the difference, because you dont tip in Japan from what I understand

    Drinking depends solely on fluidity of company rules.... Many drink together, but sometimes people don't want to be drunk while with coworkers from a professional environment. I have never seen or heard anyone object or even care about someone blowing their nose in public? So that confused me. Public drinking is illegal in America, yes. It's very weird and often not well controlled. Yelling at waiters "excuse me!" Is fine unless you are somewhere fancy. They are not here to play hide and seek with you. For the most part, people find way loud food noises to be messy, rude, and uncivilized; it's simply a part of our culture.

    To offense to this other Japanese-American couple's channel, Rachel and Jun, but you two seem more open with your marriage like he is openly affectionate with you. Jun sometimes displays that for his wife, Rachel. It's not like he doesn't love her, it's just normal or should I say different depending on the couple

    1:07 Well, it's pretty common at other Asian country. At least we said, "excuse me" before we order. You can't just sitting around and expect the waiters doing a telepathy or read your mind to know that you're ready to ordering, you need to ask them. It's just a way we communicating and it's not consider as rude if you're yelling but not with "angry" tone.

    I quite often go out drinking with my work colleagues here in the UK. Anything outside of work hours doesn't/shouldn't affect what happens at work and vice versa. Also the waiter thing seems OK to me, as my friends and I usually call waiters over (either with a raised hand or as mentioned in the video).
    The drinking of alcohol in public is different in different parts of the UK (and even from town to town). Where I work the local by-laws prohibit drinking of alcohol in the city centre but away from there it doesn't matter. The town in which I live has no such by-laws and you can drink anywhere. It is, however, not allowed on public transport in most of the country.
