    And on the hairrrr ... what if you're from the West? Is blonde acceptable then? I've got blonde hair, but it's naturally brown. Most people can't tell that it's a dye. What would you say to do then?

    LOL no dyed hair or piercings ahahaha!!! Tell that to all the self proclaimed OTAKU who think they know EVERYTHING about Japan. I've met very few without piercings or dyed hair.

    Can you blow your nose in a bathroom? Is that better? Or is it rude to the people in other stalls ... ?

    In some places in Australia if you leave your bin out too long after rubbish has been collected or put it out too early, the local council will fine you. This is done in order to keep the front of houses/apartments, referred to as nature strips (most have lawn and one tree) clean and orderly.

    I think blowing your nose in public is just bad manners, and the most HORRIBLE thing you could ever do is blow your nose while you are eating. OMG, I went out with this guy and he blew his nose in the cloth dinner napkin, not once but 3 times! I almost passed out.

    the thing about taking off your shoes is that its not a rule that exists only in japan, many other countries have it too. its just that america is weird af and wear their shoes inside their house.

    i have to say i have to also disagree with the first one yes the noise may startling and it sounds gross but People should understand , especially here in the USA they understand its a human thing and Its the Way ur body reacts into fighting the pathogens. it is a way ur body is disposing the garbage it really needs out of the body. Of course there is a Correct way to blow as to not be very rude by turning ur head away from the person or taking a few steps back if u really need to or going to the farthest edge of the room to blow and if possible step out of the room. But some times u just cant and it needs to be there. just do it the polite way. ITs really bad to Keep it in u as it can go into ur lungs and cause u to clog up ur lungs and Build pressure in ur head that can really Mess with ur Brain and push the mucus upwards. personally this is one i would be against not doing as this Benefits my health and is not hurting anyone espeically when ur sick it is a must as it can block u from breathing and sorry i gotta stay alive. its like telling someone not to sneeze when they cant help but do it so they cant control it its a reaction the body simply does and sometimes the body asks u to clear it Now before its gonna drip out allergies are horrible lol. i do not think they are the same as farting farting u can hold it in most of the time *which is not good but ur body is able to cope most of the time unless ur seriously medically ill thats a different story * i would not compare blowing ur nose to farting as some people have serious allergies or may be super sick that its a necessary just like the instinct of sneezing.

    I'm English and I cannot bear it when people blow their nose in public! When you think about what it really is, it's massively disgusting, no better than farting or vomiting really loudly and openly in public like it's no big deal, ugh. I don't even like my husband blowing his nose when we're at home and he's in the same room as me. I bite my tongue about it because I realise I'm in the minority and it's not considered rude or gross by most people in the UK. But I'm dying inside every time! If your nose is running, quietly use a tissue. If you have a cold and have to blow your nose constantly, you and your germs should stay home! I guess people with allergies can't help it, but it still raises my hackles. I can't help but see it as horribly bad manners to do it around other people.

    The woman in the video is an idiot, she tried to be funny about 10 times in the video and failed each and every time.....she may as well not be there, she adds nothing with her commentary and makes the video unwatchable. For their next video they should tell her to stay home, Ryo can handle a topic like this on her own.

    Hang on, "no eating on a train?" So what are all those 'bento box' sales points for at the train stations. Are passengers just supposed to look at them? When I was in Japan, I never ate on the short lines, but when I took the Shinkansen between cities, I ate on the train. Heck, they even had the attendants with their carts that went up and down the aisles. So, I think it depends on the train.

    Just came back from Japan and can you that these weebs really have no clue what they are talking about. Got to number 3 before stopping from these lies. Can honestly say people don't have issues with you blowing your nose in public, nor talking on trains, nor having backpack on you in a "crowded" train.

    Here in Mexico we keep our shoes on because of scorpions, at least in the rural area in which I live. My sisters visited and kept walking around in bare feet. After they left, there was a scorpion on my bedroom floor. I took a photo and sent it to them, saying THIS is why I kept telling you to keep your shoes on.

  • Crazy Sven

    Talking on the phone on the train is exceptionally rude in America as well, but many Americans are rude, so they ignore the etiquette and go for obnoxious as their go-to behavior. Same counts for on the subway. There is always someone blabbing loudly on their phone, so that everyone can hear. We call them "obnoxious assholes". The "no piercing" rule is great. When I see people with more metal in their face than a hardware store it is like looking at a pile of dung. Tattoos absolutely cover most men and women in America now, which makes the whole country look like an open-air prison. That's it. I'm moving to Japan. Case closed.

    no tattoos in many of the Japanese spas.
    with traditional floor toilets, do not flush with your foot.
    no tipping.
    no pictures of, or in someone's shop/place of business without permission.
    no pictures of someone without permission (especially monks).
    Learn to say "Please", "Thank you", and "Excuse me" or "I am sorry" in Japanese.
    People are more willing to help you if you are polite, and trying to speak language.

    nose blowing is disgusting? Well, for sure if you blow your nose in a queue or in a movie theater, right in the neck of the people ahead... Or if you do it loudly. But here on the tube I saw a japanese tv show in which they hosted a professional burper from holland (yanagi19871 or something like: search on the tube) and while he was doing his stuff people was smiling and clapping hands... So I cannot blow my nose in japan while they allowed to this guy to perform brutal burps and belches like a dynosaur mating call??? 😁

    Eating while you walk us also SUPER rude in Japan. It's okay to stop and eat while standing, but if you're walking with food it's possible to bump into someone and get food on them

    • Rollstuhl Adolf
      Rollstuhl Adolf 4 days ago

      Well, actually it more because of the fact that it is disrespectful for the cook/restaurant whatever since in Japan there are still a lot of places where the food is homemade. So if you walk while eating it means that you do not respect their effort etc. -.-

    On a normal commuter train, eating is a no-no. On the other hand, if you get to enjoy a long shinkansen ride, you can chow down all you want! Myself and the two Japanese businessmen in the seats beside me were all chowing down on our bento boxes on the way to Kyoto.

    I can understand the finger pointing thing. When I was in the army we were never allowed to point fingers. It was an open handed point. The reason? Because you'd poke holes in the air and the fairies would pour out.

    So, this probably explains why there aren't many fairies in Japan.

      Apparently, it's considered equally gross not to wear socks! Japanese people seem to have some real issues about being grossed out by feet. I've heard them say that it's because they're dirty, which I guess is true-ish depending on your hygiene! But I'm with you. Barefoot for life!!!

    I went to visit my sister (she is 100% Japanese). We were in Tokyo train station by Shibuya. I was minding my own business as my eyes gazed around starting to read funny random English words on peoples clothing and accessories. I began to laugh. And laugh. And snort. And slap my thighs. And LAUGH, teeth showing laugh. The harder I tried not to laugh at the funny things people were wearing, the harder I laughed. My sister sat there as stone faced as she could so as not to fall into the dreaded "laugh with mouth open showing teeth" sin I was committing. Even now, when I remember what some of the clothes said (My favorite time of year is pink; I am a playboy; etc), and I bust up. Our mom (100% Japanese) used to remind me because of my not fitting into Japanese society that I was a bad Japanese. That's ok. I told her this girl was born in Kentucky!

    Wearing backpacks on a busy train is just rude in general. I agree with that one. Even on an emptier train or bus, when someone is turned sideways with a full backpack, it can still be annoying to try and squeeze by them.
    And shoes in the house is weird. Maybe it's common in the US, but I've always taken my shoes off before walking around anyone's house in Canada. And no one has tried to wear their shoes in my house either, excluding the delivery guys who were carrying my new couch inside. Luckily I have all hardwood.

    Wow... these comments. It's sad how judgmental people everywhere can get about the arbitrary norms and customs they've gotten used to. To deviate from them is "disgusting" or "revolting." Would it hurt to be a little more objective and lessen your condemnations a bit?
