10 Reasons Why Japanese Don't Like Foreigners. Thanks to Squarespace, get 10% Off: www.squarespace.com/paolofromtokyo Japan tourists or foreigners coming to Japan may not understand Japanese culture because of this some Japanese dislike foreigners for not understanding Japanese manner and etiquette. As a generalization, Japanese follow the rules and get frustrated when people don't follow those rules, but often time they generally avoid confrontation when they have these sort of issues. Based on my experience, this is why Japanese don't like foreigners and tourists and what they are really thinking when foreigners break the rules. I can't stress enough that these are generalizations and not everyone is like this as everyone is unique, but for the purpose of this video and to show what Japanese may be getting pissed off about, I speak in general terms. These are my Japan tips for tourists to help them understand Japanese manners so they don't make those tourist mistakes in Japan or in that they may be unknowingly viewed as misbehaving tourists in Japan. Although some Japanese hate foreigners for doing things in the video, some other Japanese may be okay with the behavior but again I am speaking in general terms. In general, I don't think foreigners want to be rude tourists in Japan, but because they don't understand Japanese rules or Japanese manner they make the classical foreigner mistakes in Japan. These are must-know Japan tips to and a Japan guide when visiting Japan.

well why japanese don't like foreigners we don't understand why is it maybe because there might be some other reasons could be different from them and foreigners

I definitely wish America would adopt this being considerate thing as well, I am never on time & my friends make me late by being late but they don’t care what I have going on. It’s not very common for Americans to be punctual but we do need to unlearn all the things we wish to change in order to evolve and become better at it. I hope that happens soonz

The credit card thing I don’t think is lack of common sense or seeming ill educated maybe I’ll informed cux they didn’t research before taking a trip to Japan, but I’ve literally boughten Girl Scout cookies with my credit card & they were prepared and changed with society and the economy and ordered themselves a portable phone connecting debit/credit card reader. I’m assuming why this is why any foreigners would ask if they accepted a credit card because in America I guess it’s more common, Lularue clothing distributer I guess also have one too. I think it’s just person by person basis though and who takes the time to learn about it, who’s willing to save for it & the benefits/risks and what they deem more beneficial to them as a business owner. Even if they own a food cart or a large store. It’s always nice to have that option. Just wanted to share my two cents because I personally wouldn’t of known they don’t have them at kiosks and what not.

Just be respectful and you'll be more than fine. I've been to Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto and I've never felt so welcome as tourist ever. They are just so nice and very curious to know where you're from and they love to recommend things for you to do when you're in Japan

I am from a small town, and many people value their solitude. Most interactions here are polite, and it is often rare to have public disagreements, but people are very passive-aggressive. In the city, social boundaries and expectations are much different, even though our town is not very far away. I think no matter where you go, there will be issues with how other people act, or with people judging you based off of social cues. I do not live in Japan, but I believe it is unfair to generalize an issue like this, and (by extension) claim they are Xenophobic, especially considering how many people live there. Keep in mind that for them, such behavior is shocking, but I'm sure they are smart enough to know the difference between a foreigner being rude or just clueless.

I am not Japanese’s but was raised in japan till I was 8. I so can relate to all of this. I live in USA and what I find annoying is that ppl always start coming up to me and talking. Like I don’t know you and I want to be left alone, talking loud, being late and think nothing of it. I miss japan so much I just wish I could go back.

Americans can learn a lot from the Japanese including the word “HONOR” and Pride in work. The Japanese truly are a Superior race of people and Japan is another distant planet.

All these rules that are mentioned in this video are way strange for any indian because of following reasons - 1. You will see people squatting in public everywhere, it is normal for people when they get tired from walking. 2. Not a single person in India cleans table after eating in a restaurant as they think it's waiter job to do. 3.You will found many people talking loudly as we don't care about anyone. 4. That early thing for meeting don't make sense to us as for us it is not late as much you arrive even after half an hour. 5. We like to be in small talk with random people in public, actually we made many friends like this only

I already basically live my life according to those rules apart from maybe keeping both hands above the table. The rest of these rules are just being considerate. We're such rude assholes in modern Western society. No wonder that the Japanese look down on us.

What kind of self-depreciating shit is this. You think that no one else follows these rules in the west. You think that their culture is superior to ours? What they have is resentment of our greater civilizations since the reunification of Japan they have wanted to be seen as equal from the west and that led them to a world war that they lost badly. Show a little more pride for your country or for your culture, idk for the west in general.

its really sad that most Americans especially do everything he just listed. I was pretty lucky that everyone in my family was raised strictly, and most of this just seems like common decency. But a lot of people that I know think that being rude or impolite is a given. Also- I was wondering. I'm planning on going to Japan and i wanna know how to make friends when you're there if people are so introverted? Is there a better way than others?
