    - Although there are no rubbish bins supplied on the streets, citizens take their litter home with them. For this reason, the streets are always clean.

    This one also surprised me the first time when in Japan . My wife bag is full of rubbish !!!

    - Japan has hotels designed specifically for the purpose of having sex, where the front lobby is designed in such a way that the customer is saved the embarrassment of coming face to face with hotel staff.

    You can collect keys from a venting machine after choosing what theme of room you want from the venting machine ( there's photo ) and buy sex toy in venting machine .

    If you are the first to go inside a lift you must ask the next one who enter the lift what floor they are going and press for them .

    Same situation on flights where PRCs make up a sizeable pool of pax. The aircraft toilets are always dirty and wet and the toilets get clogged up. Maybe the Chinese government should teach their nationals how to use aircraft toilets before letting them fly.

    TOKYO —
    On Feb 1, a Chinese newspaper writing primarily for Chinese nationals residing in Japan published an article titled “Some of the Things that Surprised Me when Coming to Japan.” Written by Chinese men and women who have experienced the Japanese lifestyle, the publication gives accounts of some quite startling differences between Chinese and Japanese customs and what is taken for granted as common sense.

    On first coming to Japan, some of the things that shocked the Chinese that took part in this poll include:



    - Fundamentally, a child’s medical expenses are free of charge.



    Why can't our Gahmen practice this ?

    Yes, you got to watch for the cars ...the lights are not observed at all. With more than a billion people, one more death makes no difference. But the driver responsible for the injury to pedestrian had better be careful as the mob rules in China.

    P.S: The Japanese also do not shit, or let their kids shit in the public.
