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.

My wife follows two JPvid channels (in spanish) that talks about japanese culture from a foreign perspective (for any spanish speaker, the channels are Nekojita blog and La Esponesa. Both have very cool content) so once she was showing me one of the videos of Nekojita (a series they do called "Japón con Jamón"), in some part of the video the guy (they are a couple, She's japanese and He's spanish) talks about all this order stuff. And how he feels in another planet sometimes cause Well, he's spanish and the smallest of things seems rude to them, i get that in a foreign country You must be extra carefull with the respect but man there's too many small things that is very easy to screw up.

Uh, Japanese people are actually just indifferent. Its not that they dislike or like you, its just that they feel like you do: They don't know you, and have no reason to know you. So they don't try to form an opinion of you unless you catch their interest or need to do so. So this is kinda inaccurate and a bit judgmental. You don't see Americans trying to talk to each other all friendly and stuff most of the time, now do you? Most of the time Americans are ignoring each other or yelling at each other.

Japanese have good manners and clean country. I dont see anything wrong with that. I'm in the US people are dirty, throw trash on the street and can be so rude. I walk my dog and almost everyday I have to go to the street where cares drive to get around someone who is blocking the sidewalk.

3 and 10 is everywhere. And in some cities I.e. NYC or Boston, some people will look outwardly angry at you if you just suddenly stop walking or are interrupting the flow of traffic just standing there.

Hey kuya Paolo, about the tourist trap part. I'd love to know about tourist trap Otera culture...if you know or have encountered any. I've been looking at learning meditation culture in Japan and honestly I don't know how deep and real some Oteras coud be about being open to foreigners to learn about it :) that could be interesting.

Well Japanese have racist History, due to their seclusion before they opened in Meiji era and the world war and they colonialism. Eventhough racism is everywhere, Japan is the first Asian Civilization that have racist history

8:45 I’m American and I tend to clean up after myself at a restaurant. I don’t think it’s common here. I’ll also gather additional plates, utensils and whatnot. Basically I’ll do exactly what you show.
This is because the face looks smaller when masked.🥺

It's really good Japanese don't like foreigners bcz really they are misbehaved, exploiters, rough ones don't care about others culture. Bravo for Japanese to stick to their rules. ❤❤❤❤ Japan.

Blocking traffic... someone forgot to tell the Japanese tourists in my European hometown about that rule ;) Just kidding... well... half... Yeah I also get annoyed at tourist groups blocking the way in my hometown, but then they do bring good money to the country, so I try to get into a host mentality and tolerate/entertain that behavior.

Japanese people like to follow rules? That's what I thought for several years and the thing I used to like the most, because I love it, until I found out they follow it only when it's convenient to them. An example: Once, though I was the first, with only another girl being there too, to ask a dancer for a picture together, I was told to move to another place to take it, but meanwhile many people gathered there and they invented a queue out of nothing and so I was waiting patiently for some people to take pics before me, though they clearly came after me, but I just don't like to discuss. When it was my turn (it had been for a while, I would say), he refused to take the picture with me and made me go to the end of the queue, though I was already waiting for the people who skipped my turn before. I thought: that's incredible and SO RUDE, because I didn't react at first, since I entered the queue when I was told to, but they insisted that I had to go further back in the queue and that's when I said: "No! Why should I?" I was almost leaving because I was so confused and didn't understand anymore where did they want me to wait in the queue, because they were repeting all the time "no, here no"... I was speechless. I guess Japan has changed a lot over the years. They used to follow rules, but now I am sorry to say, they are just like everybody else, if not worse. At least people in Europe know when is each others turn! I miss the Japan of 20 years ago. I give it a ZERO regarding following rules and honesty and I can write a book about it, trust me.

As someone who worked at a restaurant. I can totally understand why Japanese don’t like tourists who don’t clean up their food. Whenever we had Japanese customers they would always bright up my day because of how tidy they are.

I know right how dare different people come to your country and try to have a holiday. Forget being kind to other humans that don't understand your culture. Let's all be passive-aggressive while we stare at our smartphones 👍

Interesting. Why do Janpanese then do some of this things in Europe during visits. They are always in a crowd, Blocking places and ways, they are ignoring the manners there, they are loud and noisy. Imagine, standing at Grand Canyon in the morning and watch the sunrise....and then a bus with Japanese arrives. Terrible, everything destroyed. What you saying in this video sounds for me, like Japanese are a little autistic.

I think the cleaning after eating is a so beautiful manner to do, & it's unfortunately not common in many countries including mine, it should be a must do thing when anyone eats whether in home or outside, I think the world need to learn those manners,& I appreciate the Japanese culture for that.

She boo ya 渋谷!ahhaha Japan has rules and is normal to follow to be accepted for they society I don't think this is bad , besides I thought that is awesome ahahah I am from Brazil, we love foreigners but sometimes the foreigners think Brazil is some kind of amusement park and this is very disrespectful ahaha Greetings from Brazil!

As someone who has grown up in the states and never been to Japan, all of these seemed like common sense to me. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a very Asian/Asian-American area or maybe I’m just intrinsically a weeaboo.

No.9は日本にあっても良いなと思った。 アメリカに行った時それで楽しかったしフレンドリーで感じ良かったよ。 それを日本でしたらキモいと思われるけどね…… 最近ではマナー守れてない人もいる。多分こう言うマナーが多くなったのは人口が密集して土地が狭いから嫌でも直ぐ近くに人がいるし結局他人を尊重?思いやることが大事になってくるんだよね。
