There was an interesting topic in 2channel, the Japanese biggest internet forum.
It was about “10 Things the Chinese Think Strange in Japan” brought up by a Chinese blogger who seems to live in Japan.
#1: There are huge and wise crows.
#2: People can casually talk about politics and the prime minister.
#3: Kindness to animals is permeated.
#4: High suicide and overwork death rates.
#5: Chinese is often heard in Tokyo.
#6: When it is zero degree centigrade, effective temperature is lower and feel so cold.
#7: There are bears in mountains.
#8: Police officers and civil officers are ordinary people. They are literary “public servants.”
#9: Fruits and vegetables are more expensive than meat.
#10: There are people who spend over a million yen to increase car noise.
To these ten things, Japanese 2channelers commented;
“I think there are more strange things but Chinese people are so adaptable that they don’t find them strange.”
“About #4. We often hear the news but just because the media don’t have anything else to cover.”
“About #7. We also have monkeys and deer which damage crops.”
This is the Chinese’s view but people in other countries may think differently.
