    Japan's different culture

    Now lets see....Unlike any other countries, Japan is one of the countries that cultivated its own culture in their own way. If anyone here knows some traditions or customs that make Japanese unique in their own way and makes them different from other culture, please post it here. Ill just post mine after several posts here..

    I remember seeing one of these festivals in a documentary on the travel channel once. Little Japanese ladies and tourists sucking on pee pee lollipops. I personally prefer red bean flavor.

    The problem here is just us and our prude Christian upbringing.

    Other than that, fertility celebration and worshiping is one of the oldest versions of religion in the world.



    How about the Japanese extreme obsession with losing face?
    E.g. One of the reasons they have so much reservations about saying the word 'no'.

    I've often heard of the blossom viewing during the spring. Watching the cherry blossoms (sakura) reminds of how short beauty lasts.

    Lots of people take "picknics" under the trees and leave lots of trash behind.

    Ehh??! Did I a commit something??

    Anyways, the event that Japan I found very interesting is that of the Autumn Leaves.. They used to watch Autumn leaves during the start of "Ber" months in different places in all of Japan. This says that Japanese really give important to nature... Thats my opinion....
