Welcome to Ninjapan “Japanese Interesting Culture”
This time, I will tell you about Japanese culture that foreigners do not know.
What kind of culture do Japanese people have?
In particular, I have summarized the parts that have taken root in the Japanese culture, focusing on what I found interesting as Japanese.
Let’s dig into it. 5th bullet
The toilet is too tech
What surprises foreigners when they come to Japan is the Japanese toilet. Overseas, you’re not so particular about toilets. Japanese toilets are very sophisticate. First, when you enter the toilet, the toilet seat opens automatically. This is amazing!
There are many other functions, for example, the toilet seat gets cold in winter, but Japanese toilets have a warm toilet seat so you can spend a comfortable time in winter. In addition, a song like a bird flows so that no sound can be heard around. If you press the button on the side, hot water sprayed on your hips and you can wipe it more cleanly than toilet paper. There is a type of toilet with hot air, and after it cleaned with water, it will dry with hot air.
open 24 hours
There are a few shops that are open 24 hours a day for safety overseas.
In fact, there are quite a few shops open 24 hours in Japan. The shops you often see are convenience stores and supermarkets. There are so many convenience stores that you can find anywhere in Japan. That number reaches about 30,000 stores.
And almost all of them are open 24 hours. The convenience store sells everything, so you can go shopping at any time, even if you are thirsty at night, get sick when you feel sick, or hungry. Perhaps going out at night in your country can be dangerous.
However, Japan is a very safe country. Of course, there are more crimes in the nighttime than in the daytime in Japan, so it is not necessarily safe, but from a global perspective it is a relatively safe country.
Some people are sleeping on the road early in the morning
You may well know how safe Japan is. For example, in Japan, there are quite a few people who drink until midnight and get drunk on the morning road. Nevertheless, the risk of getting involved in any crime is very low.
This is Japanese culture, so if you come to Japan, please travel with confidence.
Sit in a seat
You often sit on the ground when you come to Japan, right? In addition, in Japan, you have to sit in a way that makes your feet hurt. This is very hard for foreigners. Because Japanese people have been sitting straight since they were young, their bones are slightly bent. So you can withstand a little bit of sitting, but foreigners don’t do that. So sitting just a little bit stops the blood flow in my feet and makes me numb and immobile.
Many Japanese people do not want to be able to do so because their sitting is numb. However, there are cultures where it is preferable to sit with courtesy when meeting with superiors.
If you like Japanese culture, you should try to sit in the seat.
At Japanese shrines, you can also experience Japanese culture in the seat.
