    4.5 out of 5 of these are fine/normal/the same in Denmark as well :)
    The .5 is that yelling/calling for a waiter is perfectly ok, but they will also approach you.

    I think slurping noodles in Japan is ok because they eat with chop sticks, they can't really wrap them around like we do with a fork or cut them, so the only option left is to slurp em in.

    I was taught blowing your nose in public is rude but you don't sniffle either. you excuse yourself to a rest room if possible AND WASH YOUR HANDS AFTERWORDS. or say excuse me, turn away, look down and blow your nose; then keep your hands in your jacket pockets until you can find a place to wash them.

    The part of getting drunk with your boss and coworkers is usual in Poland too few times a year we make so called "integrational meeting" after work, where we eat, talk and get drunk, included the boss :). Btw I love Japan, I hope to get there one day. Good job guys, i like your videos :)

    I've seen Japanese people here snap fingers for a waitress or yell at them to "hurry up." Kind of like the elderly in Florida.

    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.

    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.

  • Moose and Moe
    Moose and Moe Month ago +1

    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 :)
