It’s just so out there, so busy.
We have only seen Tokyo. Obviously, the food is quite different.
Language. This is one of the first places I have ever been where
I can’t understand anything.
Most places you can get by with a few words,
but it's like being on a different planet.
It’s unusual when you suddenly can’t get through with English, right?
It’s quite tricky, especially with my accent, which is quite strong.
We are trying. We are learning!
Culture wise, what’s the biggest difference you have seen so far?
We have been to the district where there’s all the electronics.
– Akibara… Akihabara.
Just walking into these game halls. It’s just incredible. It’s so loud.
And people are just in there gaming.
Where we got married is completely in the coutryside
It’s an extreme culture difference to see that.
Me? I don’t understand the Anime, the Manga, the Maid Cafes… this kind of thing.
It’s a bit strange for me.
Okay, where are you from?

The style of the streets and stuff I think.
The culture. The food. Anything you can just eat while walking in Toronto.

The people are very nice and helpful.

So we asked people about the difference between their country and Japan.
Which is very interesting. I actually find that Germany and Japan
has many similarities, which surprised me when I came here first.
Some cultural things like being spot on time and working very hard.
There are a couple of things that are similar while other things differ again.
What is the biggest difference between your country and Japan?
Something that you realized and thought was interesting.
In Western societies, one of the biggest difference that I find is…
In Western countries, we tend to think more of us as important
and others come next. While in Japan while you generally first think
of the other person and then of yourself.
And there is more of group thinking going on.
Those were some of the biggest differences that I found
living here and living in the West.
