I’m Japanese but don’t like miso-soup and umeboshi. Do you have any “not Japanese-like” points?
>> One day, somebody posted the above comment on the internet. And many people replied to it. There seems be many Japanese people who are “not Japanese-like”; they have tastes or habits that are not stereotypical of Japanese people .
Let’s see those interesting replies ^^
– “I’m not punctual”
It is thought that Japanese people are always on time, but this person seems not.
– “I don’t take a bath very often”
Japanese people usually like a bath ritual, but for this person just a shower is OK!
– “I don’t like onsen or public bath houses very much”
Even in Japan, there are many people who don’t like onsen. Is it amazing ;D? It seems that they don’t like sharing a public bathing area.
– “I openly speak my real intentions”
Many Japanese people are not good at this, I think…
– “I’m not good at acting within a group”
It may be kind of an old-fashioned image, but people think that Japanese prefer to join a big guided tour and take lots of photos with cameras slung around their necks ^^; But this person seems to like being alone.
– “I don’t eat rice very often”
I’m a little surprised by this answer! I think this person is quite unusual as Japanese.
– “I hate tatami mattresses”
Recently, even in Japan, homes without tatami mattresses may be on the rise… I like tatami though.
How about that? Maybe you are more “Japanese-like” than those who made these comments ^^
