10 Reasons Why Japanese Don’t Like Foreigners Living in Japan. It’s probably fair to say that visiting Japan as a tourist compared to living and working in Japan is a very different experience. It’s no longer all about visiting cool sites and eating awesome food, Foreign residents quickly become part of the daily grind with every other Japanese person living here. And what a lot of foreigners don’t realize is there are quite a lot of unwritten rules when living in Japan in order to help keep it a pleasant society, until maybe it’s too late. The idea behind this video is to share some interesting unwritten rules I’ve personally come across to help anyone planning on living in Japan to avoid being thought of as a rude foreigner.
As always, these are general rules in Japan, nothing is absolute in this world, everyone is different and reactions from Japanese will vary on how sensitive they are to these rules. Some Japanese dislike this behavior quite a bit while some Japanese maybe okay with it. I am speaking in general terms. The point of this video is to help foreigners, who plan to live in Japan or maybe recently moved to Japan, understand what the regular Japanese culture and Japanese customs are so that they don’t come off rude without knowing it. I hope this helps as a Japan guide. As always, let me know how it compares to your culture.
