  1. I love japan I fucky hate monster Catherine used to work lead forgot the name.she smelll smoke but worst she cough at people she don't like she needs to be destroy atm she does but was to nice atm before but never again if she her. Catherine has an ugly monster heart she tall fat around belly brown curly hair

  2. Obviously Japans in Sweden cant pay for anything must be therefire look around like lost kittens .IF you dont have creditcard several of them since not all are accepted -you are Severly handicap yourself like on half of the places you want to buy form and next you are fueling taxevasion – but maybe you like double the wage for someone.

  3. I do hate it when some people that are sick don't care about anyone and keeps coughing or sneezing without covering their mouth or just constantly coughing and not bother to wear a mask

  4. 1:08 It sounds very very reasonable. I hate idiots who go to work or school/university instead of staying home and they end up in spreading flu to everybody. RESPECT JAPAN.

  5. Regarding squatting, well I would accept it provided that it does not make life hard to others. The guy at 2:18 is rude, he is blocking the passage.

  6. Japanese people should come to Malta. They have the exact opposite mentality: Maltese people are completely careless, they're lazy and fat, they don't give a shit about people around them and they have high pride and low competence.

    It would also be interesting to see a Maltese in Japan and how long he would last before his shitty behaviour would alert the authorities.

  7. #3 blocking traffic: we gotta apply that to the US specially Disney and other theme parks and malls i absolutely hate people standing in the middle of the hallways or slowing the walking traffic flow

  8. 匂いについてナシですか??日本人(アジア人)は鼻が低く湿度が高い環境で育っているので鼻が高い人種に比べて極端に匂いに敏感です。そのため他人の体臭や香水の匂いに弱く、電車等の密室で外国人の近くを避けてしまうのもそのせいです。日本にお越しになる際は、是非いつもの1/10程度の香水や無香料のデオドラントを使用して欲しいです🙂

  9. South Korea is pretty much the same way with most of these. I wish politically our countries could get along, because culturally we are very similar.

  10. I'm going to Japan in March and I keep telling my parents that credit cards won't be accepted in Japan but they keep refusing to listen to me and I don't know how to get them to use common sense instead of giving me an international credit card.

  11. What's fucked up is in America, the medical masks that people wear when they're sick are extremely discouraged. I'm good friends with a nurse and some doctors and they laugh at me when I wear the masks when I'm sick in the doctors office. Of course the sign encourages people to wear them because it has to, but they are regarded as a joke and creepy in America. My friends and family make fun of me for being a "germophobe", but honestly it just pisses me off because it's not germophobic at all to 1) not want to kiss people when they're sick 2) want to wash your hands before every meal and after touching something dirty like garbage (or shaking someones hand), 3) to sanitize my tooth brush before using it, and 4) to respect stagnant water bottles and discard them and follow water boiling notices given by my town. My whole point is that the social norms of Americans cleanliness habits are filthy and I'm tired of being the outlier surrounded by idiots, especially those that make fun of me for taking logical, good, sound medical advice on how to not be harmed by dangerous germs. I sometimes feel like the main character in Idiocracy when he's like we should try to give the plants water instead of Brawndo. And the people go "Water, like from the toilet!?" facepalm

  12. I don't like this title, theres so many things wrong with it.
    "Tips on what not to do in Japan" would be 1000 times better. Just sayin.

  13. i’m from chicago , and in my hood the streets are one way and narrow. people will stop their car in the middle of the street and have conversations with people through car window. if u honk or say anything . THEY LOOK AT U LIKE THEY WANT TO KILL U because ur out of line and you should wait.

  14. I must be Japanese. All these things are things that annoy me as well, even the squatting in public, it just looks trashy and people stopping right in the middle of a right of way? oh man, that's a paddlin.

  15. I hate people who block walkways too, extremely irritating when I run across some koreans (NW USA) who all congregate in one area forcing you to find another route and or acting spiteful when you try to force your way past. Number six is the complete opposite at least for having your hand on the table it's seen as rather disrespectful at least when I was being raised.

  16. They dont like foreigners 😱 Omg Why the hell are they throwing gadgets in other countries & why they sell used 2nd hand bikes to Asean countries & pollute their country but definately saving themselves.
    Japanese means meanest

  17. So Japanese get upset when tourists go to tourist shops that where specifically designed for tourists. I get upset when retards get upset with tourists going to the place designed for them.

  18. Stop the “piss off” comment. You can use that a few times but after that use anger or perturbed or uptight. Piss off is way too harsh. You’re not a native speaker it’s obvious. I live in Tokyo for almost 20 years from 1989 to 2008. Some of what you say is true. But some of it is not accurate. I lead a very Japanese life in Kichijoji far away from the other gaijin. I still missed Tokyo very much…

  19. マスクは移されたくないのもあるけど、自分の顔を隠すためでもある。
    (・∀・)

  20. Considering all tips mentioned, japanese people shouldn't visit Israel or Middle East under any circumstances, they'll probably get a bad time there. 🙂

  21. I won't never go back to that country, people in general is respectful but they are not warm, they don't want to make friends between them, neither the foreigners, is sad but is the reality.

  22. Does it annoy Japanese English speakers when one keeps saying, "at the end of the day"? I like his videos, though I'd like them even more if they made all the main points in half the time, but in fairness to him at the end of the day I feel that way about most videos. I really liked visiting Tokyo, btw.

  23. People blocking paths is still annoying in Canada, even worse when you got a full tour bus of Asian tourists blocking traffic for some pictures.

  24. Ah the 100 Yen invisibility cloak of the surgical mask. Many women wear them when they are "dating" (wink wink) a guy not their boyfriend or husband.

  25. Idk man, I live in Romania and many of these things do apply here too. Like if you eat at fast foods in a convenience store or a mall, people usually take their trash to to the bin themselves. Also, talking to random people out of nowhere on the street is not an usual thing. So is the thing about paying with a card at small stores and stalls. Also tourist trap restaurants are a thing here an are despised and it's not usual to sit an the ground or stairs (or at least people that do it are not necessarily considered ok).
    But things like talking loud in public and being late is common, yet they are still annoying.
    I guess these things are trully about common sense and are kind of universal, but maybe in western Europe and USA people are lacking this more than they had in the past. Eastern Europe has a more conservative atitude, so respect and politeness in public is visibly apprecited, not as much as in Japan. But sure, these things also depend on the individual.

  26. just because something is different from were you come from dousnt mean they have to change it or you have to cry about it.

  27. Most of these if not all cover “big”city living. London, Paris, Bangkok, Singapore, Seoul even Marrakesh it’s the same. Big population centres create their on set of rules outside of cultural norms. If you’re from a big city just behave normally as you would at home don’t worry so much about the local idiosyncrasies. They’ll be forgiven.

  28. In a nutshell, Japanese people always think of others and minimizing inconvenience to others, which, to be honest, is what every people should practice even when they are not in Japan! In a public space, always be mindful of other users, and don't be impolite or selfish.

  29. Clean Tables are probably an international thing. .. At least over here in germany. If you have the possibility to put your Rests away you should do it. I have a very uncomfortable feeling when I leave a dirty table after me.
    Except in Restaurants, they come to you to clean after you and if you try to clean after your self they say it I'd not necessari.

  30. Cleaning up after yourself is an international thing but god damn so many people in the UK are somehow happy to leave their filth everywhere. It sucks so much

  31. Very informative video. For any Japanese people who would agree with Paolo remember to take the pole out of your ass before you visit Ireland and you will be very welcome.

  32. Big tip, dont talk about your sponsors on location …. its rude ….. (Do it eighter in the beginning or the end…. like talking about your sponsor twice is over-selling it….

  33. I hate having to wait for people. I learned from my mother to always show up early even if you know you'll most likely have to wait. I'm not Japanese nor have I been to Japan.

  34. I am introvert and hardly speak due to social anxiety I would be the best visitor. Plus I am Korean Japanese European American but look more Asian so they wouldn't know the difference. I was raised like that so Yeah I would fit in.

  35. 所々合ってるやつもあるけどじゃっかん間違ってるやつもあるな笑
    利き手と逆の手をテーブルに置いちゃうのは今でも結構やっちゃうし癖みたいになってる。海外の人には日本に来た以上楽しんでもらいたいんだけどね

  36. The nice things about America, people are rude in the open. That is a good trait, rather know you don't like me, than you being an internal devil.

  37. Yeah, specially when you occupy the whole stair (2:21) blocking it to others. That is grosse and totally idiotic, not to mention a total lack of education. In here you would probably thrown down the stairs, or run over by 2 or 3 people so next time you would think a little……..Good video.

  38. a very small country, with many, many people, where social interactions HAVE to be smooth; thus, conformity, conformity, conformity.
    the Japanese are also one of the most racist people in the world; they make us (except for certain groups who live in America) seem like social angels. at least, we learned our lesson.
    Making people wait is a passive-aggressive move, common to some of the same, racist groups in America.

  39. I'm Swiss and I think Japan is a bit similar to Switzerland on some points. We don't like "disturbing" people, we are mostly considered to others (we won't be loud, let a mess at the restaurant, not making people wait. . .) We might also think it's weird when people start to small talk to us while at the supermarket or on the train. When I first moved aboard, I was very surprised by people small talking to me all the time. Anyway, all of this make kinda sense to me

  40. Erhm. I feel like this is just common sense apart from the mask but we use our arm to cover. I'm from Sweden and this is how it used to be. Mostly immigrants and feminists breaking these rules which basically seems to be most nowadays unfortunately.

  41. If I visit a "real" Japanese restaurant and I can't speak Japanese or read the menu…should I expect them to speak English. That seems disrespectful too.

  42. The streets are clean!!! Come to any western country and you'll have lame brains throwing their crap on the ground….

  43. Hey mister Paulo,… those people were not "squatting" as you put it. Squatting is the illegal occupation of a building or land. Get your facts right mister!

  44. That was a total waste of time…! Everything you moaned about is purely cultural, and every culture has its idiosyncrasies,…. for example,…. japanese tourists in English bars piss the landlord off BIG time when they order ONE glass of Coke so that they can sit at a table for 10 or 12 people!

  45. What surprised me the most was the talking in line one. I'm from Toronto and when waiting in line, I always talk to my friends.

  46. Really interesting video, thank you. I would have never imagined the whole show your other hand while eating thing could upset someone. Good to know.

  47. Eating with your off hand on the table is a tradition of honesty. In the days of real gangsters that wore suits, those who kept their off hand under the table were often using it to point their pistol at others.

  48. When I was there, I hated people talking loud. No respect for Japanese culture. Being able to hear people a block away from me, is saying something. Also, there is no true last call, at any of the bars. So you'll see some really drunk tourists out and about. I knew of a few, who damage a display window, because they were heavily drunk. I felt ashamed to even know them. Tipping is something that's looked down on too.

  49. Funny how we always have to conform to everything when we visit, and have to understand their culture and people being rude to us, but when foreigners come into Western nations, we have to bend over and do everything in our power to accommodate them and help them. White people are the LEAST racist of any group of people when you hear what other races say about them.

  50. This is not why Japanese don't like foreigners. They don't like foreigners because they are xenophobic racists. This is more about conforming to their cultural norms.

  51. #3 is one of my biggest pet peeve‘s about driving in Japan. And it’s against Japanese people. Pedestrians and cyclists are oblivious and have no common sense.

  52. Foreigners … don't get involved anymore in Japan. Please leave it … Permanently. We will return … to an ancient lifestyle! 🗾

  53. The Japanese never liked foreigners, this is more a racial superiority thing with them. Foreigners not doing things the way they want them too is just the trigger for this dislike.

  54. Not Japanese but I clean up our table when we eat out. The reason is what are we pigs. Why would you want for someone to clean up a table after you that looks like a two year old had just eaten. Just a question of courtesy. Old American culture teaches that elbows are allowed on table and one hand stays on your lap. I don't follow that rule but my wife does.
