What NOT to do in Japan

Japan is an awesome place to visit, and no one should let "rules" get in the way of that! But Japanese culture can be very different to what we're used to at times, and some things we do that may be acceptable for us can be surprising and rude in Japan. My husband, Jun, and I put together a list of the most common things we see that can cause trouble. As a foreigner you won't be held to the same standards as Japanese people, but if you want to give a really good impression then these are some guidelines you can follow!Rule of thumb: Just think about how your words and actions will affect the people around you before you do something! It's as simple as that. :)Useful Japanese phrase: shouganai (しょうがない) - It can't be helped.This phrase embodies the Japanese method of acceptance. Whenever you're faced with a situation you can't stand, just remember: shouganai!Jun's Kitchen (Our Other Channel)http://www.youtube.com/user/JunsKitchen?feature=mhee
