    So nice to see you both so happy together. I always wondered how easy or hard it was for a Western woman (supposedly not submissive enough) to be married to a Japanese man (supposedly very chauvinistic). Looks like that is just a stereotype on both counts.

    When I was in Japan the sniffling drove me nuts, lol. I just wanted them to blow their nose to deal with it. It was really hard for me to ignore, haha.

    I've gotten drunk with my coworkers every Christmas. I did some breakdancing with my company's CEO. We were atrocious but it was really fun. It depends on where you work I guess. It also depends on if you hate your boss or coworkers. I kissed a coworker two years ago. She had a boyfriend. I apologized to her the next day and she said it was okay, but it was awkward for a while. Then the next year when she was single, she kissed me! And I was in a relationship then and... okay I don't know why I delved into that. Anyways. Drinking with coworkers is okay as long as you don't invite the coworker or boss everyone hates.

    when it comes to yelling to waiters I could totally see why it would be the way it is on either side (so for anyone who doesn't get it this is my view and it may help you understand it better) it would be a situation of whether or not others are doing it, if everyone is yelling at the waiter then it would be normal and not be out of place and/or unwelcome extra noise for other customers whereas if everyone else is quieter/silent it is disrupting, out of place, and generally inconvenient.
    EDIT: The same thing can be said for slurping noodles

    I am going to be adult about this. 1. Why most adult movies in Japan are censored (blocked the private areas)? 2.- If being on a bus, there are no talking no touching and it is rude to look at other people, then why adult movies are being filmed on bus and it seems to be normal everyday people riding on it who are not actors? Once again, just being an adult about this. What to know

    There are some aspects of Nihon culture that I do enjoy, such as the politeness. What annoyed me is the preoccupation with ritual rather than directness. It seemed very passive resistant in some respects.

    Well, Asian culture and traditions are unique in every country. There will be the "do's" and "don'ts", no matter what. The question is how people from world over can learn, understand and adapt to their respective and distinct culture. Nevertheless, Asians are generously known to be well-coming people, generous, hard working, family-oriented and of course, friendly.... most of the time. There will be a culture for most people when they realize things are not the same like back in their own country :)

    Also drinking in public is not illegal everywhere in the US just a large majority of it. It's perfectly acceptable to drink in public in New Orleans for example.

    In New Orleans, it is OK to drink outside and walk around as long as it is not in a glass container. We have drive-in daiquiri shops where you used to be able to get up to a 32 oz. cup with a lid and a straw and drive away. 10 or 20 years ago they made it illegal to drink and drive so now they give you a gallon plastic milk jug full of daiquiri (your choice of 15 or 20 different kinds) with a sealed top with empty cups, lids and straws on the side. You just can't have an open container in the car now. Also we always went out drinking after work but we only brought the boss if we liked him. I also know and am related to Texans and it depends on where you are. If you are around Dallas/Ft Worth, you can't drink outside anywhere. No fairs or football games. Around Houston, you can drink at a Oilers/Texans game AFTER 12 noon. Half the stadium misses the kickoff.

    extreme sense of entitlement is standard human value for americans, blatant one sided candour is common place, shooting down anything not American and different with a gun is mainstream social ethics, cultural exploitation is a must, which I believe in most countries is found to be offensive,,,but who gives a shit...when God himself is American white...

    i am from america i have heard a few people say "u make eye contact with the waiter" when u want to order. but I don't know what they are talking about. I would say more commonly, you would just set your menus down on the table and the waiter should check on you, they may even check on you before you are ready. i do live in the midwest so that might affect it.

    Hmm... I always raise my hand to get attention when my waiter or waitress looks over to my direction. I don’t say excuse me or yell anything. I don’t think that is rude...
    Another thing, I’m not sure which area of USA the lady is from... I’m a consultant and all of my colleagues went out drinking with our managers and get hammered. No one ever thought it was rude. Life is short, live a little.

    If your waiter passes you or is nearby you can get their attention with a wave or an "excuse me" or if you can catch their eye but it's rude to assume that in a restaurant where the waiter may have a lot of tables they can drop everything when they're on the other side of the restaurant to help you. Plus that's a lot of noise to disturb other guests. Like, if they're walking empty handed near you then they can probably help, but if they're delivering or preparing something for another table you wouldn't want to interrupt and risk overwhelming or confusing them.
