    Question New Neigbours Living Next Door

    Don't you just love this culture? Here I am sitting at home, minding my own business when someone rings the front door. It's the new neighbour and cool, she has a present for me!

    As I love getting presents, I am eager to open this rather large box up. It's nicely wrapped with the neighbour's name on it written in nice calligraphy. And to my surprise, inside is........ washing powder! Actually, it wasn't to my surprise as it's happened before to me. Previously I have received soap. Do they think I'm really that grubby?


    It's tradition in Japan to give your neighbors a small give when moving in. I did have a small chat with her, but I'm sure this is the last I will hear from her. In my building, there are about 20 different apartments. I have been living in this building now for just over 2 years, and still no-one has invited me over for dinner, left me the keys to their place when they go on holidays or anything....

    The Japanese are very private and their home is really only reserved for family members. That's why restaurants and shopping centres make a thriving business here.

    Well, off to use my washing powder now!

    ^^ Heheheh yes, I do love that. I remember that when we moved into our new home in Japan we were greeted by the neighbors. (Dont remember if we got anything though)

    In my case the people were nice. They'd often greet me when they catch me on the way home from the school. They'd always stop at our home to pet and play with our dog (Hell of a GUARD dog he was. XD LOL)

    We were even once asked to attend a funeral of one of the family near by. (I couldnt go cuz of school and my parents felt uncomfortable)

    I guess your experience varies on where you live and what kind of people live there with you.

    Well I guess that they wanted to know that you did use soap when washing so they bought you some. or that was the only thing they could think of to get you. As for the keys would you really want to be responsible for someone else house or things like that? I can see the dinner thing but I guess like you say they want to keep it family only.

    Must be nice. I've lived in the same apartment for almost 3 years now, and I don't think I've seen the neighbors more than a handful of times.

    Are you sure it was washing powder?? just kidding. Anyway thats awsome that they gave you anything. The only gifts I have ever gotten from my neighbor is their dog crap, beer bottles, fast food garbage and constant supply of noise. Of course I have given them gifts too, like the hot summers day they left the windows down on their cars and I put raw chicken under their seats. I bought them a future meal and made their car smell nice!
