    I traveled to Japan during the winter, and I basically have a genetic defect that causes my nose to run continuously when the temperature drops below 70. I knew about the "don't use a tissue in public" so I mitigated by resorting to dabbing my nose and trying to turn away from people while doing that. But it was tough. I had also heard that putting on makeup in public was rude (I think it kind of is in the US as well) so I avoided even applying lip balm just to be safe, until I saw a high school girl applying full makeup, including amazingly well done eyeliner on the train. Maybe she was a delinquent.

    Hello, first of all, thank you for this video, it was helpful. I have a question about blowing your nose, can you do it if you're with your friends not strangers? And for example if you're at school/work/restaurant, is it okey to go to the restroom and blow your nose there?

    I half disagree with the waiter thing... I think putting your hand up or saying excuse me if they're close enough is ok. Maybe don't scream across the ROOM but I definitely wouldn't be embarrassed if the person I was with put their hand up *shrug* idk maybe just in NYC diners haha

    Burping is no big deal, and preferable to what comes after if you hold it in. That gas has to come out somewhere, and is guaranteed to both sound and smell better if let out before it's too late.

    What? Who does not drink with coworkers? In the US we used to party with workmates all the time. Some of the best (craziest) parties were with coworkers (lawyers office, grocery store, restaurant, aircon... many jobs, and of course Navy ha ha). Maybe she has a boring job...

    I think the hailing a waiter thing was too harsh. Raising your hand is ok to do. Maybe that's just her family, or her town. The US is a big place, after all. She scolded her husband for nothing lol.

    I will raise my hand as a way to get the attention of my server if I see them at a distance and they are not looking my way. Who has time to wait for them to look around? They have lots of tables to wait on. I also will say, “. *excuse me* at the same time. Not loudly but loud enough to catch their attention. They should be looking around but if they have 5 or so full 4-5 topped tables *THEYRE BUSY* so me trying to get their attention is for my benefit. Have I done it in an expensive restaurant? Of course not. They usually are not so stretched thin like that and *THAT* would not be appropriate. However, if it is a place like *TGI FRIDAYS* 🤷🏻‍♀️ 🙋🏽. *EXCUSE ME! Melissa! I’m ready to order*

    Rude around the WORLD (not just in JAPAN) but very polite in TeKKKsas!
    1. shooting blacks with impunity
    2. taking poor peoples healthcare insurance, WHILE shutting down their only doctor, Planned Parenthood clinic
    3. Laughing at poor people's inability to get a job,
    4. Celebrating poor people's inabilty to live outside a toxic dumping ground AKA zoning laws.
    5. Loving Trump for his Nazi-cheerleading and his insulting hurricane hit Puerto Rico.
    All these go for Latinos TOO but slightly less. Unless you live in some Arpaio like county. Then it's WORSE.

    I remember when my Japanese friend asked me how British people get the waiter's attention and I said to just wait or try to make eye contact. He was very confused and asked why can he just yell at then and put his hand up and I found that laughable that that's okay in Japan. Literally, I laughed and the poor guy was even more confused.

    I think the biggest cultural shock for me is that the Japanese prefer to sneeze into the open than into their arms or a tissue. I literally had a Japanese guy sneeze onto my legs on the subway (possibly not intentionally). When he looked up and saw my face, I couldn't help but give him possibly the dirtiest look I've ever given a person in public because I was so disgusted.

    The drinking and getting drunk around co workers is incorrect. Nearly everyone does it. Have you never heard of an office christmas party. I do not think I have ever had a job where I did not get nice and drunk with my boss at least a few times. I think this was just a fear this women has been ingrained with by overzealous or religious parents. Getting drunk at work is a completely different thing and will get you fired.

    The big one that surprised me is the age of consent in Japan is 13. Though, adults are not allowed to have sex with people under 17. But still, can you imagine it being legal for two 13 year olds to get it on?

    One thing you forgot is the level to which men -- with women or not -- can act outwardly effeminate and either not seem to be of another persuasion or not be judged as such. I lived in Korea 15 years and visited Japan just about every month (and it is more pronounced, and this is common to see in both countries -- though it is more obvious in Korea, in my opinion.

    Your list was flawed. You were wrong about two things that are rude in the U.S. It's fine to party with your co-workers and bosses and to blow your nose in public. Where ever you grew up, I don't want to EVER visit there! Bunch of antisocial people sucking boogers up their noses. Ew!

  • Blanche Konieczka
    Blanche Konieczka 29 дней назад

    Another lie about what's rude in America! It's fine to blow your nose in public unless you're in a restaurant or eating. Then you excuse yourself and go the the bathroom. Sucking boogers up your nose? That's disgusting! Seriously, where did you grow up? Also how many operations were performed in your town to remove the sticks from people's behinds? I thought Pennsylvanians were tight assed, but where ever you grew up makes us look like party animals and remember we are the Quaker state!

    w8 is it rude to blow your nose in public in Japan?
    because, idk if this happens to other ppl, but if I try to "suck the snot up my nose", it'll hurt inside and I'll feel worse... and I'll probably have to blow my nose eventually anyways... maybe it was to do with the fact that I suffer from chronic rhinitis :c

    In Japan, drinking is encouraged as someone who doesn't drink is viewed as someone with something to hide who doesn't want it slipping out after a few drinks.
