There are many othters things we would like to share with you. Things you might think are wird or simply different from your Country and your culture. For this reason in this post we are gonna share with you 7 more things you should know bofore you travel to Japan.
- ABOUT MAKING RESERVATIONS
Japanese always make reservation and always show up to meetings reservations. This is mean that Japanese dosn’t believe in a situation where people don’t show up after have done a reservation or accept to participate to a meeting. For example you you book a hotel room or a restaurant is better to show up, if you can not make it is better to call and let them know. So please make sure to show up once you make the reservation. If you wanna cancel the reservation please let them know.
- CLOSE THE DOOR
In general when Japanese people leave one room they close the door, always. If you are leaving a room or you open one door just a little bit with out enter in that room Japanese might conisder rude.
- TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES AGAIN
We talk about this point also before, we said that you need to take off your shoes in some restaurants and always in Temples. There are some other places you need to take off your shoes: dressing room, guest houses and Onsen which are traditional japanese spa.
- PHARMACY & MEDICINE
Be carefful to don’t carry on your luggages illigal medecin, you can be arrested.
Maybe the same medicine that in your Country is alowed it could not be in Japan. So ask your doctor or show your medicines at the airport before to fly to Japan. In case your medicine are illegal in Japan you can get a special permission from your doctor or ask for “Yakkan certificate”.
- SMOKE, DRUGS & KNIFE
In Japan you can not smoke everywhere, but still there are many smoking area around the city and some restaurants and bars where you can smoke inside. Is totally illegal to smoke marijuana or carry a knife longer then 5.5 cms
- WHEN YOU GO SIGHTSEENG
We really reccomand to hire a tourinst guide when you go to visit an historical place ot museum, or temples. Some places they can provite explaination and voice guide system but not all of them. If you dont want to pay a tourist guide you can always find a volounteer guide or simply ask information to japanese people around you they will e happy to help you.
- SUMMER IN JAPAN
Summer is getting hotter in Japan, very hot and humid. Even if it’s hot outside carry wiht you a jacket because inide hotels, restaurants and other buildings like train stations or bars are very well air conditioned so you might be chilly that’s the reason why we reccomen to wear wisely. An other thing we reccomend is to hidratade yourself.
