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.

    • @bage lucky right... it looks like the title is misleading and clickbait actually... I don't want this youtuber do something like undermining Japan's reputation cuz compared with other countries in Asia, Japan is not that xenophobic at all. Or rather, as a country open to the rest of world earlier, the Japanese are living very well with foreigners side by side

  • I can relate to some of this but not all. It is considered bad manners in Northern Ireland to lick your knife when eating and wearing sunglasses at a funeral would also be seen as not proper. It is the custom for the new neighbour to be given a welcome to the neighbourhood. They may be given flowers and we have special cards with Good Luck in your New Home on them. To be honest I have never seen anyone squeeze meat but certain fruit etc wouldn't be frowned upon as long as it's done gently. Things like pears if you like them softer and they're going to be washed before eating anyway. Being upfront with your friends is seen as better here rather than being 2 faced and talking about them behind their back, that would be classed as bad manners. We also bring gifts back when we go away on holiday to friends and family. It has also become more of a custom here to give money to the bride and groom but some have a wedding gift list at a particular shop or shops which you can pick from. It is custom for it to have a range of different prices of gifts to pick from, to accommodate people's economic conditions. It would be seen as bad manners for the list to be all of items of high cost. We also have to book holidays from work as far as advanced as possible, usually at the beginning of the year, this is to make sure that there will be enough staff cover etc. Of course things can happen that take you unawares and you might need a couple of days off unexpectedly. It would be seen as bad manners to complain about this as you might be faced with the unexpected at some time also. We all have different customs it mean one culture is any better mannered or worse than the other. We just have to respect each other and the world will be a better place

  • I live in a Caribbean island, born and raised, we have big issues with crime, juvenile delinquency, poor education, dilapidated infrastructure, low employment, terrible economy and a society divided along lines of class and race. I can fully understand why many Japanese would be weary of foreigners. They have a peaceful, harmonious and well ordered society and the introduction of a substantial number of foreigners there would destroy the way of life their ancestors fought and died to build for their descendants.

  • In Japan, all of these things are seen as normal for most people. I think that there is no such thing as wrong culture. The country’s culture is shaped from when humans started living in that area. Western culture is very different from Japanese culture. The manners in Japan goes down to extreme details sometimes, and you have to get used to it. People is Japan work as a group, not as individuals most times. There is a problem of people working too hard tho...

After that they will probably never talk to you again 😁 Most of the other things are common (or were anyway) here in U.K. licking chopsticks just like licking your knife. Having said that I’ve seen adults who can’t even use a knife and fork these days.

Let to the side the language (I would need a intensive course for years). which I barely understand. Since I fell under the charm of Japan (decades ago) I may have taken a lot of habits myself as my knowledge and interest grew. Ultimately. I wanted to move to Japan but never had the guts. Now too old to start a new life altogether, I'm just going to say that these videos are fantastic and I enjoy them very much. Thank you.

  • 私は日本人です。学生です。 そんな私視点からコメントをここに残しておきます。 私の場合、家族である父は完全に休みが決められています。なので、同僚と相談して休みを確認するという動作は頻繁には無いです。 ただ体調を崩した際は同僚、そして上司に連絡して調整させてもらっています。 【そもそも「日本の会社員」とは言っても一口に幅が広すぎるのです】 休みを簡単にとれる仕事(ここではそういう仕事を分担したチーム)の種類によっては、「明日は休みなので俺は休みますね。じゃあ!」といって休むことも出来ます。 会社関係の休みに関して、結論を言うと《簡単に休める会社員もいる。でも、仲間と相談して休みを調整する会社員が日本には多い》 こんな感じですね。 次にお土産に関して何ですが……。 これ、サムネイルのように「いらっと」はしませんね。 あっても無くてもどっちでもいいです。 お土産なんて親切心で買うものなので、義理とかで貰っても美味しくないです。気まずいです。 どのみちあっても無くても、イラっとはしないと思いますので、そんなに怖がらないで。。。。。 簡単な話、貴方がお土産を買って渡してあげたい。そんな気持ちがあれば買って渡せばいいのではないでしょうか。強制ではないですよ(≧▽≦) 次に近所の慣習。これは最近の若者はしないですね。 でも結婚してそこに長い間住むことになると「近所にお家を建てる事になりました。〇〇と言います」的な挨拶はする。でもしない人も偶にいる。 そういうしない人はお仕事の都合上、色んなところに引っ越さなければいけない家庭かもしれないので、そんなに嫌悪感は示さないで欲しいかな。 この挨拶からご近所付き合いで仲が良くなることもあれば、別に何事も無く疎遠となるケースもある。 そんな両方のケースがあるので、君たちが日本に来て一軒家などを建てて暮らすと仮定するのなら、挨拶はした方が良いと思うよ。 動画でも言っている通り、この文化は田舎の方に多いね。 だから僕は一軒家という表現を使ったんだ。都会のほとんどはマンションだからね。マンションに住むにあたって、ご近所なんかに挨拶しないよ( ´∀` ) なので別に近所に挨拶をしないからと言って、日本人がイラっとすることは無いから安心して。イラっとすることは無いからね!! 話が少しそれるけど、日本人の多くは外国人恐怖症みたいな感じなんだ。 でも君たちが日本に来て、日本の文化に馴染もうと努力しているのを見ると応援したくなる…。 努力する人を応援したくなるのは当たり前かもしれないけどね。 言いたいことは、外国人だから。それだけで差別するようなことは無いよ。 話は戻るけど、自分がここに住む!となった時に、近所に挨拶をすることはあるよ。 ただ、ギフトを渡すかは人によるから別になくても問題無いよ。 特に初対面であったらギフトを渡す必要なんて日本人同士でもあまり無いからね。 それとこの近所に挨拶をすると言うのは、田舎(一軒家)の場合のケースが多いという事も忘れずに。 【人の家に尋ねた時は靴を揃える。】 ↑ これが今までの話の中で一番大事かもしれない。 他の人の家にお邪魔する際に、玄関の靴はしっかり揃えた方がいいよ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 【一度とった食品を元に戻す。】 ↑ その品を見たいと思ってその商品を手に取り、品定めした結果戻すなどは全然やっても大丈夫だよ!!!! でも熟した果物を手に取って、万が一傷付けてしまった場合は戻さないで買ってしまう日本人が多いかも。 そこは日本人のモラルなのかな。 自分が製品に傷を付けてしまった場合のみ、その製品は自分が買いますよ。 でも服の解れや、元々その商品が壊れてる!!などの場合は店員さんを呼んだ方が良いですよ。 なので触った商品食品を元に戻す。などの行為は、特に不快にはならないよ。心配しないでヾ(・ω・`) 【箸を舐める】普通に家でやります。 箸を舐めるというよりは、箸をしゃぶる方がマナー違反ですね。少しだけ箸を舐めるぐらいであれば大丈夫だと思いますよ。 光の速度で舌👅を動かせば誰にも気づくことはありません。 犬のおしっこに関しては分からない。 うんちの場合は、ビニール袋と小さめのスコップを持って散歩する人が過半数。 後はルールを守らない少数派の人達かな。どちらにせよルールは守って欲しい。 犬のおしっこは…僕の一概では何とも言えない。 最後の結婚式のしきたりも僕はまだ学生なので分からないです。 日本人がイラっとする時は日本にいるのに日本のルールを守ろうとしない人だと思います。 ので、日本の文化に馴染もうとしてくれる人は受け入れられることが多いです。 正直僕がこんな公の場でここまで言っていいのか分からないです。 でも間違って欲しくないので、ここにコメントを残しておきます。 僕は日本が好きですし、日本が好きな海外の方も大好きです。 これからも頼むぜ。相棒。

I see people in europe when someone has an emergency they dont even care or only a few are willing to help or call an ambulance. There was even a case where one old man was lying unconcious near an ATM machine and nobody ever helped like 5 people completly ignored him. In germany if you dont help while you whitnissing someone is in danger or need emergency, you do nothing for example you will get punished because its a crime to not help. Yep we even need a LAW to bring people to actually help others. Thats the disadvantage in our society where the individual is more important than the group.

Though I didn’t know about the no touching the food unless you want it though yet somehow I’ve always felt it was rude to touch the food anyways if you’re just going to put it back. I was always self conscious with what I picked up and would not put it back because I would feel guilty. Besides I was always afraid of poking a hole through the plastic because I’m so heavy handed when handling stuff 😂

Like the fact that I have to put others needs before my own, including my own (mental) health is a big NO. And imagineeee not being able to stand up for yourself when someone is being rude. Hell no!

I am now 26 and from all the things I have learned about Japan I don't think I would live there even if someone payed me. The amount of backward thinking that japanese people have is just. For one why should I go without vacation because my coworkers don't want to take one and then I'm the rude one for taking it, also what's this waste of water with washing dogs pee away when it can just be done by the rain, dude it's so stupid. Don't mean to criticize them but as someone from the western world I love my individuality to much to live in a country's who's moto is to hammer down the nail that sticks out.
