Why Japanese Don’t Like Foreigners

Why Japanese Don’t Like Foreigners

this video is brought to you by Squarespace my go-to for making websites more on this in a bit so have you guys ever wondered what Japanese people are really thinking well in this video I wanted to share with you guys some of the things that they never tell you but they’re actually thinking it’s out of their head so I’ve been in Japan for more than 15 years and I’m going to be sharing with you some of the stuff that I’ve learned all along the way in general Japanese people like to follow the rules so when others break those rules it’s very frustrating for them on top of that Japanese people don’t like interacting with strangers so they’ll try to avoid speaking out at all costs and the reason why I know this is because I’ve actually made a lot of these mistakes myself when you do come to a different country you want to be as respectful as possible but it’s just hard because a lot of the times Japanese don’t tell you that you’re pissing them off but just keep in mind that I’m generalizing thing is not everyone is like this in Japan these are some of the guidelines to help you guys understand what Japanese people are thinking and so maybe you don’t piss them off when you come to Japan number one not wearing masks in public when you’re sick if you ever come to Japan or I’ve watched Japanese videos or any of my videos for that matter you’ll notice that a lot of people are wearing masks getting on airplanes or sometimes whether they’re just on the train so what a lot of people think is that Japanese people are scared of getting sick and so they wear the masks to protect themselves from other people transferring any viruses or any sicknesses to them that’s actually partly true but the other side of it is they’re trying to protect other people when Japanese people get sick they don’t want to transfer what they’ve caught or their illness to someone else so that wear a mask to protect other people so it actually pisses them off is that when someone else is sick and they’re not wearing a mask is a common courtesy Japanese people expect others when they’re sick to wear a mask so if you ever in Japan and you do get sick it would probably be good to wear a mask number two squatting in public if you ever been walking the streets in Japan especially Tokyo you probably rarely see Japanese people squatting the reason for this is when Japanese people see someone squatting they actually think that this person is poorly brought up one thing that I kind of see personally in Tokyo I’m especially with tourists is I’ll go to a department store and I’ll just see them like sitting against the pillar or sitting like actually on the ground in the department store or maybe they’re sitting on some stairs this is actually the same thing as squatting in public Japanese kind of view that as behaving poorly so the thing is in Japan department stores are considered luxuries so it’s kind of weird for Japanese people to see someone squatting when they’re trying to like get that luxury experience it’s kind of like seeing someone picking their nose right next to the Chanel shop or like the Gucci shop so if you do feel it hard then definitely find the scene I know Tokyo is a bit hard especially because there’s not a lot of places to sit you can definitely try to find a seat for what Japanese people will do is they’ll find a cafe and they’ll sit there number three blocking traffic now this kind of goes hand in hand with like sitting in department stores or squatting in public basically you’re making a nuisance of yourself when you’re blocking traffic so for example you’ll be walking on the street and you’ll just see like a group of tourists just standing in the walkway and not letting people pass by that just like really pisses people off because a lot of people are trying to get from A to B and you’re just like getting in their way and you’re not kind of considering others not to say that all foreigners or tourists do this but Japanese people will do it too but as you get kind of older you realize to be more courteous of others and you try not to get in other people’s way so if possible if you need to stop don’t stop in traffic try to go off to the side where you’re not actually getting in people’s way number four expecting places like food stalls to accept credit cards and now we’ve gone over this so many times in my other videos that Japan is still very much a cash based society if you’re buying street food probably not expect them to accept a credit card it because it’s just kind of common sense common knowledge that these places don’t accept credit card and they will get kind of like annoyed it’s kind of like why are you asking me to take credit card when you know this place these shops don’t take credit cards because at the end of the day it just makes you look like you don’t have any common sense all right so it just started to rain so I needed to find some cover and what better way to do it and here let’s continue on number five tourist trap spots now this one again maybe doesn’t piss Japanese off per se it is kind of embarrassing to go and eat at these kind of places because it’s just a so much food that Japan has to offer when foreigners go to these like very very tourist trap places and eat it’s kind of like are you kind of missed out thing is I’ve actually gone to a lot of these like tourist trap places myself just not knowing better and I kind of wanted to give you some pointers on what’s a tourist trap spot and what is not this usually applies to for example like izakayas Japanese drinking restaurants so the ideal for a good Japanese restaurant would be a place like this that keeps it simple with minimal signage what you’ll find instead with like a lot of tourist trap places is not only will they have their sign it may be in English but they’ll also have a signboard with pictures and not only Japanese but it also has English on the menu you’re kind of like oh so they are like catering to a foreign market one of the biggest giveaways for this is not only DC English but you see like Chinese and Korean you see like three different languages on the menu you might want to step back a little bit because this could be a tourist trap spot well one thing though this kind of goes against what I was saying like for example if you go to ramen shops nowadays there’s ramen shops they get really really popular and they have a lot of foreigners coming to it just to make the experience a little bit easier for both parties they just added the English to the menu but originally they didn’t have it so it’s not like they were initially trying to like get foreigners to come it’s just foreigner started coming so they had to kind of adapt and add an English menu oh and this is probably the biggest giveaway out of all of it if you ever hear one of those like aggressive shamisen music playing in the front of his door you should probably run because they’re like trying to attract tourists like he would not believe but in the day if you want to come to Japan and you just feel comfortable eating at these like tourist chop spots then yeah that’s fine but if you want to come to Japan and you want to kind of experience like authentic Japanese cuisine I would say just like try to stay away from these places all right so before I continue I wanted to just give a quick

purchase of your domain or your website number 6 eating with it off hand underneath the table so this one was like really weird to me because what I didn’t know this until after coming to Japan and back to be honest with you I still do it sometimes the way you’re supposed to eat in Japan is you’re supposed to just have some dominant hand you’re eating with your chopsticks and you have maybe happy a rice bowl on the other hand and you’re just like you’re just like eating like this but but sometimes if you know you don’t have the ball in your hand and you’re just eating on the table like I sometimes take my off hand and I put it underneath the table or like just on my lap and I heat with just one hand but apparently this is just kind of bad manners in Japan this is something that Japanese kids grow up with where their parents like telling them to always show their other hand because I think just in general people like to put their off hand underneath the table or on their lap where they eat I don’t know if this is a thing in your country but it definitely is something here in Japan so when you eat and you want to have kind of good manners then you should leave or you should show your off hand the entire time just like put it on the table and finally before we get out of this place number seven not cleaning up after you eat so cleanliness is kind of one of those pet peeves that Japanese people have they like to keep everything clean you know in general so when you’re eating in a public place it’s always like kind of proper manner just to clean up how to yourself while you’re eating and especially after you eat maybe in other countries you expect the waiter or the waitress to clean up after your eating so you can like leave all of your crumbs on the table you can leave you know your french fries or your noodles it’s just like spilled on the table it’s okay just to leave the table like that but in fact in Japan it’s a common courtesy to actually gather all of the napkins of like the loose items and put it all in the bowler in the center or the plate and then if there’s any like spots on the table just to like wipe it down with a napkin make it kind of tidy because in Japan no one wants to have like a really messy table even after they leave is that an international thing or is that a just just a Japanese thing all right so that’s enough about food let’s move on to the next one number eight making people wait this one actually pisses a lot of Japanese off so in general I think Japanese people are very punctual and that’s just because they’re being considerate of others they don’t want to make other people wait so when there’s twisting meet someone say for example for work then they’ll usually arrive 5 to 10 minutes early on site they’ll probably like go up a minute or two before going to the front desk and check them themselves in it’s just like it’s one of those things being considerate is probably on the priority in like thinking of others so the fact that you’re late meaning you’re wasting other people’s time and Japanese people don’t like to waste time and in fact they hate it when someone else wastes their time in fact it’s I’ve been here so long it kind of pisses me off to be honest when people that I have a meeting with are late I’ll actually set up a lot of international calls like on skype or whatever people overseas are always like 5 10 15 minutes later that email me to the floor sorry got stuck in a different meeting and I think it’s almost like common practice to be late when you’re setting up a meeting but me being in Japan and working in I know a japanese-style environment for so many years I’ve just got accustomed to being on time or if not early to all of my meeting so if you ever come to Japan and you’re meeting up with a Japanese friend you have dinner reservations or just meeting someone for for business or for pleasure you want to be on time if not early so definitely keep that in mind when setting up your meetings but there is one caveat to this so as people get more comfortable with each other than I wouldn’t say it’s accepted to be late but it’s more forgiving and it’s not as big of a thing when compared to if you are acquaintances or if you were a business meeting at the end of the day is just being considered and none that don’t understand why that’s so hard for some people maybe it pisses me off with him Japanese people number nine talking to someone in line so again this one is another thing that kind of surprised me kind of one of those reverse culture shocks when I went in the States I was just waiting in line at the supermarket and all of a sudden someone behind me just started talking to me asking me about the weather or the sports theme or something like that I was completely shocked I think it’s because I’ve been in Tokyo so long that people here in Tokyo at least they don’t appreciate it when a random person it just approaches them especially if they’re just doing their like normal daily tasks like going to the convenience store to buy something it catches a lot of people off-guard and it kind of just makes people uncomfortable I know there’s like there’s people out there that like to talk to people but if you want to kind of respect that people’s boundaries and their spaces then you might not want to just like come up and start talking to them so I think the exception to this is if you do have a reason to talk to someone so for example you are lost and you need like directions then you can like say soon less and excuse me and then ask for the directions I think this is probably more mainly to do with the city because there’s just so many people there’s so many like interactions that could potentially happen that you don’t want to like continue to get bombarded with people so people are kind of in their own zone in the city maybe if you were to go out in the countryside it’s less likely people have the guard down more so so in fact they may actually appreciate you’re talking to them don’t take this as like all of Japan is like this but maybe like in the city areas where people are just more closed off then you might make them feel uncomfortable and finally number 10 talking way too loud now I see this all the time when you’re on the train when you’re on the bus you’re in a restaurant and people are just talking so loud that it interrupts you what’s it’s kind of off-putting and it actually pisses a lot of Japanese off I’ve heard my Japanese friends comment about it it’s just something that people kind of like get really turned off by because people do like their personal space and someone like a group of people are talking way too loud conscious being inconsiderate about their surroundings then it just kind of like pisses people off it just scene says that you don’t really care about the other people around you and I mean if you’re just like talking normal it’s not a big deal but I will say that it’s not like I don’t hear Japanese people do this I mean like you’ll probably sometimes be on a late train and people are like talking loudly because everyone’s drunk on the train or you’ll go to maybe like a festival and people are talking about but just like in normal everyday daytime scenarios people like try to keep their voice down so they don’t bother other people so if you are walking around and you don’t want to piss people off then just like keep your volume – as my grammar school teacher used to say keep your 12-inch voices no one’s made more than 12 inches 1-yard voice because in the States so yeah those are my top ten things I don’t know if this video gets really popular maybe it gets like 10,000 likes or it gets a few hundred thousand views and maybe we’ll do another one so definitely hit that like button let me know that you like this video if you want to see another one or else if you want to see what I’m doing on the daily then check out my Instagram

  1. One observation regarding "the second hand on the table when eating" it is a cultural difference and custom. In the U.S. particularly in the "South" it is considered good manners "Emily Post" to place ones un-used hand in there lap as they eat.

  2. -__- IM BAFFLED ILOVE JAPN, by far one of my favorite countries…i love everything about it …especially the women ^_-…..but i can't have one of my hands under the table to jerk off to a big breasted japanese waitress while i eat my sushi -_-? im appalled

  3. They opened themselves up to have the Olympics .. so they need to be prepared to deal with it.. I can think of a great deal of things that I dislike about Japan ..but I would still give it a visit..

  4. Why Japanese Don't Like Foreigners… because they have a very orderly, polite, clean, homogeneous society and rightfully expect visitors to assimilate into the culture by exhibiting consideration for others as well as a certain level of humility. Much to their benefit; the Japanese do not have any hang-ups about “cultural diversity” or in virtue signaling their “multiculturalism”. Assimilation is the objective. I spent a lot of time in Japan in the late 90's / early 2000's and absolutely loved it. The country, the people and the culture are incredible and I look forward to going back there for an extended visit.

    This informative video is really just a list of good manners. If you are lacking in this area, or you have this narcissistic notion that you and your sensitive feelings are of such importance that you cannot bear to be “behavior-shamed”, you might not want to visit Japan.

  5. How you date a girl in Japan? I mean as you said, they don't appriciate if you talk to them. How you get to know each other?

  6. In consideration to point 7 I can say that Sweden shares the sense that you should leave your table clean and help the personnel at a restaurant as a courtesy.
    Unfortunately this has become less common nowadays since there seem to be more and more bad mannered people and immigrants doing the exact opposite, almost intentionally making a mess as they leave.
    Also putting napkins in a cup or glass is extremely common, however this is absolutely hated by restaurant personnel so never do it if you visit Sweden.

  7. I live in USA and I always clean up the table for after I eat and even cleanup after my friends because I am a busser so I'm used to it and they always look at me like I'm crazy for it. Nice to know Japan will appreciate it

  8. Japan is a society that must not be ready to live with the rest of the world by everything you just said, because almost every country in the world does what pisses Japan off. My bet is you should advise the Japanese never to travel to other countries

  9. seriously fuck japan, dont tell me where to put my hands while i eat, mind your own business you fucking nosey cunts

  10. This must be an anti socialist dream here. I am introverted..Means I don't spread my energy across a crowd, socially, but I love small group chatter. I easily talk to strangers to pass the time in lines , events, and parks. However a lot of the social rules put distance between people. Lol seriously, talking to complete strangers is social no-no. Kinda severely limits the type of friends you make.

  11. Me and my family visited Japan 🇯🇵 this summer previous to our trip I research the do and don’t for example, ppl in japan walk on the left side of the street, they don’t talk loud in public places, etc. I was a little bit intimidated bc videos like this and although they are informative one can feel discouraged to visit. Many of these “rules” apply but japan is a beautiful country worth to see at least once in your life time. From experience I can say that although Japanese people is very reserved they can be very helpful and polite. When you visit japan you aren’t expecting to make lifelong friends and that goes for any country but you expect to be treated with kindness and respect and that’s exactly what you get when you are in japan. I loved Japan and I will go back eventually. Every country has its ways of living and as long as we respect them and they respect us back it’s all it matters.

  12. please don't misunderstand that Chinese is not Japanese.
    both of them is Asian, but they have completly different culture.

  13. japanese in Bali walk around in packs, wear clothes and carry umbrellas to hide from the sun and are pretty much the rudest people I have ever come across, if you no likey the rest of the world stay in Japan

  14. I really can't get behind the idea that Japanese people are any more polite or considerate or selfless than people in any other country. With enough time, one finds that it's a country like any other, with people just living their lives. Let's stop perpetuating this silly and unnecessary propaganda.

    I don't mean to sound hostile, but over six years in Japan, I see every one of these "no-nos" performed by Japanese people on a regular (daily) basis.

  15. 10,000 likes I lost count after you said 'like' a hundred times. Why do young people do that when it just makes them sound 'like' un-educated.

  16. Very interesting… my daughter's 2 years in Shikoku were quite painless bec she always made the effort to do things the way the locals did. IF only on Wellington (NZ) trains people did Not answer cellphones…..
    I would like (!) to not hear you using "p—s off"… generally coarse and not polite…( I say politely )

  17. Japan is for Japanese people. Just because you watched a couple of animes & want to invade their country doesn't mean they will like you or respect you. SMH.

  18. I love talking in lines but the rest is common sense. What I dislike is everyone staring at a phone in almost every scene

  19. Lmao it's the opposite for me. I went to Universal on halloween last year, and I spend 5 hours waiting on the group line accidentally while I could've gone to the singles line which would take 10 minutes. They started laughing and talking and I was just there doing an embarrased smirk when my sister found me and she got in the ride before I did in 5 minutes.

    The guys who saw me so dead inside and embarrased gave me a minion sticker. A minion sticker. Nice, but really made me more dead inside. I said my thank yous anyway.

  20. I remember a friend of mine told me Chinese people are loud, the funny things is the last time I went to Osaka most Chinese tourist are kind of quite, most western people I come across are super loud and have a habit of blocking.

  21. The problem with those Authentic Japanese eateries, "#5 tourist traps spots", is that they have no English in their menu. How can you expect a person who doesn't speak Japanese (which is the majority of tourists) to be interested in those? Worse is that most of those authentic ones still have staffs that don't understand English. Also, there are those authentic ones that hate to have foreigners and would prefer to have no foreigners instead. They will end up thinking of avoiding conflict and misunderstandings and choose a much easier option that caters a more understandable one.

  22. This is a great video and makes a lot of sense for all nations to adopt their ways – its well known Japanese are the most cultured people on earth possibly English next.

  23. The point about being tidy at table is certainly international now. l do this myself even though in Britain the culture, at formal table gatherings, is you're NOT allowed to do anything apart from eat. Mopping up spillages for example shows low class upbringing in a house with no servants. Even re-folding your napkin on the table to look neat when you've finished shows you must re-use napkins the next day in your house (yeeeugh the thought of it.) 🤣

  24. Are you tired of manga, sushi and cherry blossoms? If so, I invite you to try the new application – Destroy Japan Button available in Google Play, which allows you to destroy this country.

    Attention! Japan is very large and it takes some time and resources to destroy it, so the whole undertaking requires many clicks. Have fun!

  25. In my experience in japan growing up, this is all base on Toyko way of life. I'm from Osaka and it's quite a different guide when it comes to this information. Now what I don't understand about timeline 4:45 is that not everyone can afford a nice 4 star or 5-star meals all the time when visiting Japan. Some tourist or visitors that have returned to Japan, work on a budget system to stay up float. Tokyo isn't cheap either but those restaurants you prefer to use to stay away or what piss native Japanese citizen is kind of miss there. I rather have my friends eat there and learn the differences between eating there and eating here. It's a learning experience for everyone. When the Olympics do come to Toyko this will be good for everyone Japanese citizen that owns a business in Tokyo. That is respect, I don't see why another native resident will mislike a business that helps their community with educated the tourist communities? As the resident's of Japan, we are all about respect. But this is again mostly Tokyo way of life (in some area) I know some locals that will go to a tourist spot restaurant when they are either in a rush or just hanging out in front at night. Yes, Paolo is right about going to these restaurants that are more ideal when it comes to the food experience but we all learn from somewhere and he clearly made those choices. I, on another hand, will support those local businesses regardless if it's a tourist trap. Those are local citizens of the city of Toyko and I will do anything to support to keep the city going. Because it keeps the city going. It's hard to gain the trust of the people of Japan, but what you call can do is educated yourself and do the research beforehand. They will come to respect you in due time, so patience is key. think about it like this, Remember, you step into their house, do you disrespect your "okaasan" (mother – お母さん) house? I didn't think so.

    The eating in the proper ways as Paolo said is the correct way by the way

  26. but if a restaurant is a traditional, without english menu and with no english speaking personnel, how are you supposed to order ?

  27. I feel the same way as the Japanese. Except I’m White and Canadian so if I expect others to act like Canadians it’s viewed as racist.

  28. Planet Earth should learn from Japan how to live life…..Seriously. This should be taught in schools along with Katas and Qi Gong.

  29. As a german most of the things are not new to me.
    Another thing Germans and Japanese have in common, they both will say something like "sorry for my poor English" even if they talk better than some Americans XD

  30. So let me get this straight : a tourist trap restaurant is easy to spot because of the gaijin friendly languages, and a “good” Japanese restaurant doesn’t have any of that. Why the hell would a foreigner or a tourist step into a restaurant where they can’t read the menu and may even be told at the door “no Gaijin allowed”

    Seems like a no win situation for gaijin and here you are saying “aw what a shame, you care all this way to Japan and ate at a tourist trap spot”

  31. So the two mainland Japanese girls that I picked up at a bar in Okinawa were not Japanese after all? They bought me a drink that initiated the whole thing. They were polar opposite of how Japanese people are being described here.

  32. Very observant to pick those things on the list. There is still a whole other layer of manners the longer you stay in Japan. Etiquette and duties in regards to family, relatives, work, neighbours are harder to master as a foreigner. Personally, I would not want to conform to all of their customs because I don't like all of them. That's why when I lived in Japan, I knew I would never be accepted as a Japanese. I couldn't expect to have my cake and eat it too.

  33. Sure as hell would be good if people get cleaned after themselves cause working at a fast food restaurant is a nightmare

  34. Japanese culture is smart and conscientious. These rules basically apply in any coffee shop, or country, including the United States or any culture. Maybe not everyone understands this, or is annoyed by this.. but it's true the world over.

  35. ‪11. Having western ideology stuffed down their throats.‬

    ‪12. Getting accused of racism that isn’t there.‬

    ‪13. Constantly getting told their entertainment is regressive or trash.‬

  36. I like the mask wearing when you are sick , i once saw an Asian man wearing one in the hospital i attended for cancer treatment and wondered if it was for his health or others .
    A flu could kill me and people need to remember that when they venture out sick.

  37. "Why Japanese Don't Like Foreigners"

    I assume it's the same reason why all nationalities don't like foreigners: foreigners are ugly and smell bad.

    Now that I've made this important observation I will start watching the video to see what Paolo will say.

  38. Born and raised in the US, but I feel most of these things ought to be basic good manners. I also find most of these things annoying, and try my best not to make other people uncomfortable. I do eat with a hand under the table, but I clean up my mess when I'm done.

  39. #4 – meanwhile in China and Vietnam, food carts accept WeChat and AliPay, as well as credit cards.

    I strongly disagree that this is "common sense" knowing that street carts only take cash. You just need to know that Japan is hopelessly behind the rest of Asia.

  40. whats this have to do with foreigners? you should rename this "10 reasons japanese (and everyone else) dont like assholes"

  41. cleaning up after you eat should be a world wide thing but we got some fucked up parents out there that don't teach their kids shit : P

  42. To some extent your video is true. I was in the US Navy and I've stationed in Japan for more than 10 years, 3 tours of duty. So that right there, will tell you I have experienced life and Japanese culture, too. In my honest opinion, it just depends.
    Any country you go to, you will encounter local people that don't like foreigners. How do I know that?? Because I was a US Navy sailor, I have traveled and visited Southeast Asian countries, Europe, Middle East and Africa. And that's exactly I can tell you "how I knew", "been there, done that"…:)

  43. this is incredibly specious.. Japanese don't like foreigners because they are an extremely xenophobic nation, maybe the most in the world. stay at any APA and check out their nationalist literature that btw lauds Trump. I have been to many countries and never experienced such overt racism.

  44. Sounds like I'd really enjoy Japan. Many of the things you mentioned are some of my own pet peeves. I think it's a matter of respect and being honorable as a person, which is very rare in the USA. I especially don't like strangers just trying to start a conversation with me for some small talk. Also, I will clean up after myself in restaurants the best I can, which I get weird looks for being most people don't give a crap and think it's the server's responsibility in the USA. However, I don't want to clean up after someone else's mess, why should someone clean up my mess. Some servers have thanked me for cleaning up and making their job easier. Ok, that's the end of my rant. I think it's just a matter of being respectful of another culture and the people who live there. It may be beneficial to learn about another culture before visiting their country. Anyway, great video, very informative.

  45. First of all, no one would be offended by this practice, anywhere. Can you do one on the proper way to greet someone?

  46. I’m thinking of actually moving to japan to live there but I’m a bit nervous since I can’t really talk Japanese and I only know a few words😪 It’s just that some words change completely by the way it’s phrased it. And don’t get me started on kanji😭😭

  47. Thankfully, I'm pretty sure I avoided most all of these things when I was on vacation in Tokyo last month! I made it a point to be polite, respectful, and thankful when I was there, in the interest of not being That Obnoxious Foreign Dude, and it got me good results. I'm well aware that some of them were likely thinking the Japanese equivalent of "Bless your heart," (in the sarcastic Texas sense) of me, but if nothing else, I appreciated their politeness keeping them from being rude to me. I loved my time, brief as it was, in Tokyo, and I want to go back and see and experience more! I wish that some people on here would quit bashing and being rude and mean when referring to Japanese people in a know it all manner–what, did you go to Japan and act like Logan Paul or something? Like someone else said, if you're cool to people, they'll be cool to you most of the time, right? Right. Further, when I got off the plane at Narita Airport, I was approached by some enterprising young folks who requested to interview me for Japanese TV, and I think I surprised them when I talked about how much I wanted to see more than Japan's pop culture (which I did), and I may have even made some points with them. For all I know, anyway.

  48. Don’t go to Japan – got it. They hate anyone not Japanese and are extremely introverted. From this video I gather that they just hate basic human behavior

  49. wearing a mask won't protect yourself or other against disease: bacteria and viruses are way smaller than fpp3 filtration (best filtration mask you can get as a civilian).

    It can be useful if you go in a place with high concentration of the nasty for a short period of time (like an hospital) because the humidity of your breathing will stuck the bacteria and slow them down in the fiber but you gain like twenty minute top. If you wear the mask all day it's useless.

    Those mask are for dust, particle and powder
