    飲み物とかは、飲み歩きとかしてもいいと思う。ただ、飲み終わった容器は必ず捨てるようにして欲しい

    Yours is the second video I've seen today in which a non-japanese who moved to Japan eventually started to act in a collective way so as to not stand out from others (the other was a Jamaican woman getting her architect license in Tokyo). This worries me a bit. I want to visit Japan, but I like all the things that make me different and I don't want to change. It's possible to subconciously act different and not notice.
    Can you make a video about Japan's collective "hive" mentality and how you've delt with it? Thanks!

    日本はもっと街中にゴミ箱を設置しろよとは思う
    地下鉄サリン事件以降にゴミ箱の数が一気に減ったからテロ対策のためと言われてるけど、別にゴミ箱以外にもポストやら公衆便所やらベンチの下やら爆弾を隠せる場所はあるから、ゴミ箱設置禁止の理由としては違和感があるんだよね
    これからオリンピックで外国人も増えてくるのにどうするの?外国人が律儀にゴミを持ち帰ってくれるとは限らないよ?

    Don't walk and eat at the same time? Doesn't Sailor Moon do this all... the... time? Let me guess, she gets a pass because she's running & eating instead of walking & eating?

      Uhh... why would that make you think it's acceptable? That's showing you that she's the character who doesn't have her act together. Does Sailor Mercury do it much?
      But trends are changing, and it's getting to be more and more acceptable in more and more situations.

    Japanese are not so different to Chinese from Malaysia and Singapore. We all have to get our shoes off and can't do the chopsticks action when you poke it into your bowl of rice or whatever food.

    日本の文化は、海外の人からすれば非常に厳しく、面倒な文化だと思いますが、それでも日本が好きで日本に来てくれる海外の人は、日本人の我々からすればとても嬉しく思います。
    靴を脱ぎ忘れて土足で上がってしまっても、その人が日本人じゃ無いと分かれば、強く叱責せず相手の文化の違いを思いやり、丁寧な説明で日本の文化を教えてあげるのが日本人のやるべき行動なのではないでしょうか?
    海外にお住まいの皆様、日本人はまだまだ海外の文化のギャップに対し、理解が浅いとは思いますが、これからもよろしくお願いします。

    A couple people have said it's a very dangerous place for women, especially if you're a tourist. I wanna find out specifically how so? I've been told women get 'felt up' a lot on trains and stuff.

      @redfish337 Thank you for taking the time to reply, this really helped.

    • redfish337

      It's not dangerous for anyone, relatively speaking. Almost anywhere else you can go on the planet is MORE dangerous, especially just considering the human element. Compared to most places you could travel, you can be relatively oblivious. Crime isn't zero of course- and there are murderous crazies who are totally off in the head- like anywhere else, but Japan's high standard of living means those people don't just die off before they can be a problem. But if you're not careful in a lot of countries, you will get scammed, mugged, or pickpocketed. Basically, 100% something will happen if you appear off your guard. Japan, you'd probably get through without issue. You should still be on guard to some extent, but you can have much more peace of mind travelling in Japan.
      The issue of the trains is... essentially... it's a crime that they can't fix. They can reduce the crime rates of most everything else way down, but groping is something that just can't be eliminated. Because, during rush hour, it essentially can't be caught with any sort of reliability.
      BUT, as a tourist, you have a special privilege! You don't ever have to go anywhere during rush hour! Even when you do, you can usually take trains that are going reverse of the commuter traffic! So you're actually in much better position than most!
      For those who do have to commute, many trains provide a women only car during rush hour.
      Almost everyone in major cities have a briefcase or messenger bag or purse, so even if you're crammed up on everyone, you tend to just be crammed up on bags. So if you are on a crowded train, position your bag properly as defense. Take basic precaution.
      But again, Japan gets the bad rap because they TALK ABOUT IT SO MUCH, because it's a rare crime they can't actually get rid of, not because the incidence rate is all that high. Especially considering how packed the trains can be at bad times.
