Japan is known worldwide for its traditional arts, including tea ceremonies, calligraphy and flower arranging. The country has a legacy of distinctive gardens, sculpture, and poetry. Japan is home to more than a dozen UNESCO World Heritage sites and is the birthplace of sushi, one of its most famous. This beautiful country with great people has a rich and colorful culture country. There are many good attitudes and disciplinary that we can learn from them to appreciate Japan, us as a human being, and our world.
- Always Show Respect for Others
Japanese people are not forgetting to show their respect to one another. They show their respect with a bow to greet each other. The more respect or formality you’d like to convey, the deeper the bow. Besides that, they also maintain distance when greeting. Keeping two or three feet between them is a good rule of thumb. But if you are further away, speaking and interacting may prove awkward or difficult. Japanese people also speak distinctly but quietly, stay off their cell phones in public spaces, and allow the hosts to take initiative. Not to forget that they will keep their gaze lowered, because bold eye contact is considered quite rude, and do not stare their eyes for a long time as well as their feet. Try to watch their mouth or chin while they are talking.
- Treasure Nature’s Most Simple Gift
Japanese people cherished the simplest aspects of nature and they have a deep love of the natural world. That is because their country is one of the most harmony and clean countries on earth. All you have to do to appreciate this is arrive in Japan spring, in cherry blossom season, or in autumn, when the leaves of the forests turn and witness the mania around experiencing these annual events.
- Very Clean Toilet
This is a fun fact! Japanese toilets and their public toilets are the best and they are always clean. The seats are heated, and they have more buttons and functions than your parents’ stereo. Make sure that you know how to use the buttons. Japan also has a toilet museum. It shows how grand and cleans their toilets are! What about toilet paper? Do they prepare for that in every public toilet? Well, some public toilets have automated disposable/clean toilet seat paper covers. Often you will find chemical cleaning sprays as well. Other than that, you can bring your own handkerchief.
- Uses of Public Transport
Just as you already know or you don’t already know, Japan has such an efficient and incredibly good network of public transportations, so that so many people are love and prepared to use it. People in Japan and all of the Japanese are all take the subway; the train, the bus, or the cycle. They also like to walk instead of driving. Whether traveling alone, with family or friends, using public transportation in Japan is a lot less complicated than it seems. The result is a system that caters to the need, and it’s an extremely good one.
- Be On-Time
Be on time is a good discipline for Japanese people. Try to not running late. It’s seen as a sign of disrespect for the other person’s time. Just as you know, the trains in Japan are always on time, so, that’s what proof that Japanese are all on time. That’s the greatest attitude that we all can learn from Japanese and do it.
