    the fact that i ride on the train even day and some dudes playing on the phone yelling "I DEID" concerns me. And SOME DUDe EATING A HOT DOG IN THE TRAIN IS EVERY DAY. so in conclusion SOME and a lot of Japanese don't follow the rules

    Wearing shoes indoors is a revolting habit. All the more so if you have carpets.

    Not talking on your phone, or eating, on trains should be decent manners ANyWhErE. The fact that eating and drinking are pretty much compulsory on trains in the UK explains their disgusting state.

    0:49 It's not only in Japan. You have to use the bathroom to blow your nose in an Asian household. It's very rude. I don't care since I live in the US now. As long as you're not blowing your nose when I'm eating. Yuck! LOL!
    3:35 Transit companies everywhere has the same rules: No Eating, or Drinking or Smoking while in transit. Not only are you being inconsiderate, you're a nuisance as well.
    4:49 It's not only in Japan. It is considered hostile to bring shoes, which may carry dirt, germs or other diseases into the house where young and old members of the household gather on the floor to mingle. I would love to one day own a house without carpets.
    5:40 Finger pointing as it turns out dates back in ancient days as an omen. "This rule dates to the primitive days when the pointing finger was considered to administer a hex-and, in its conspicuity, to risk attracting the attention of a stranger who might reply with an evil eye."

    About the chopsticks: I thought the rule of not holding food with more than one pair was more to do with the fact that you stick them in your mouth. About the bins: Suppose you had a long working day during a pick-up day, wouldn't that excuse you for putting them out early? And what about when you go on holiday? About the tattoo business: Wouldn't it be sufficient not to hire someone who's missing their little finger?

    Well, guess I'm never going to Japan. My nose (and eyes) are always a bit runny because I'm very light sensitive, and I absolutely HATE the wet sniffing sound and feeling, I always discretely wipe my nose. I have moved away from people on busses and trains, because I'm disgusted by the sniffling sound, so it is weird to me that the Japanese will rather have snot running. Eww.

  • AKimmd
    AKimmd 11 days ago

    The Japanese culture is a sickening and disgusting culture!!! I have been there, because I worked for a Japanese company. In the video they only show you their typical make-believe world. Don’t let yourself get carried away in believing that everything is so wonderful over there, that everything has been taken care off.........On the contrary; it is not a coincidence that this country still has the highest number of suicides in the world, together with North-Korea. Many of their traditions are outdated and cruel. They don’t care about the elderly, children are still severely beaten in schools, they don’t care about the sealife surrounding the Japanese islands, actually they don’t care about human or animal life at all.......................
    In Japan everyone is expected to work themselves to death. Japanese Labor Law demands that all full-time workers have vacation time and overtime pay. The laws exist, but workers are so loyal and competitive that about 13% of workers actually use their allotted vacation time. Many work places don’t have a punch-in-punch-out system, so the hours an employee actually works is not recorded, sometimes working 14 hours a day. This system causes a lot of stress, resulting in suicides.
    And don’t think these rules apply only to adults. From the time kids start middle school, they become full-time students. Besides a normal school day being from 8.30 - 4 pm, kids have club activities, private lessons (juku), and tutors that will keep them busy well after 8pm. Then they can go home and start their homework. During Winter, Spring, and Summer holidays the teachers make sure to give the students enough homework that they practice each subject everyday during the break. The kids study for tests that are given by the state each trimester. And, of course, high school in Japan is something students need to test into, so the varying grades, and distance between high schools ends up fracturing a lot of middle school friendships.
    Earlier this year two high school girls jumped from the 4th or 5th story of their school.The news played it as a tragedy, but didn’t bother to look into the reasons why it happened. Everyone knows why, but no one wants to talk about it........Welcome to beautiful, despicable Japan!

      +Władca Wymiaru Yes I know what happened and it was terrible.

In their hearts they never changed and that's why China will never trust them, nor will my country...........

      More people dies in...Russia or China from similar reasons.
      However japan is dying, but not because of "cult of work" but because of high life cost and taxes.This is the reason WHY public debt is crashing them...reaching 240% of GDP!

    In the Philippines, guests know very well that shoes aren't allowed inside houses. The host usually provide guest or extra flip flops that are exclusively for indoors. If guests do not want to take their shoes off, they would just opt to chat outside.

      It's no surprise that the original "body modification" trend arose from "neo-primitivism". You're basically a bunch of backwards trash that should be stomped out.

    where is it even normal to walk around inside with shoes on? never been to a house here in scandinavia where it was ok to keep your dirty shoes on and I would feel disrespected if people walked into my house wearing shoes. Though I've had some italian and british guests where I had to tell them to take them off... a few times even, (I think they thought it was an option the first time I said it.) Otherwise people I've met just always take them off.

    a lot of "rules" in japan should be also "common manner" in other countries.. like not clipping ur nails in public. apparently a lot of fucking people in china does that all over the world. it is ridiculous how they don't clip their nail in their fucking home and just go out and clip their nails. i guess picking ur nose, scratching ur back taking off ur shoes would be along the line of the DON"T do it anywhere! not just japan!

NONE of them because of the hygiene. they wear mask because they don't want to wear make-up. they wear mask because they don't want to be seen talking in their mouth open when they are at work. it is almost like u do it and u know it is wrong, but using the mask to cover ur crime. and they ALSO wearing mask because they don't want to SMILE at you in the shop! YES! i worked in japan, i KNOW what i am talking about. so you all stupid people believe it is all about hygiene and shit, get REAL! if u need to fucking blow ur nose, blow it! what the fuck.
