Hi everyone
So today I am back with a new video
and it is 10 facts about Japan
that you probably didn't know already
now I hope you enjoy the video
and please comment down below
about how many of facts you guys knew
So we know Japanese bow at basically any occasion
from a greeting to an apology
but did you know depending on how deep you bow there is a different meaning behind it all
so there are 3 ... 3 ... omg I can't hold this ...
So there are 3 main types of bows
the first one is called the eshaku
which is a 15 degree bow and it is done in an informal setting as a greeting
the next one is called the keirei
which is a 30 degree bow to show someone of a higher level, respect
and then we have the saikeirei
which is a 45 degree bow reserved for major occasions
like meeting the emperor
or used to apologize when you've screwed up something really big
so if your in Japan and your walking on the streets
and someone randomly hands you tissue
don't be scared because this is how many many Japanese businesses advertise their business
if your handing out free tissue people are more likely to take this and see what your company has got to offer
rather than if you hand out flyers
I think it's a pretty good idea and also you know I never run out of tissues anymore
Some Japanese companies conduct a morning exercise session for their workers
they believe that this makes their workers more healthier and productive for a days work
Japan has some really really cool animal cafes out there
you've got the dog cafe
cat cafe, rabbit cafe, bird cafe, reptile cafe
even owl cafe and penguin cafe
that's alot of pretty cool animals to be drinking tea with
So in Japan most of the streets don't have names
the blocks have numbers
so the streets are just empty space inbetween the blocks
and the buildings on the block are numbered in order of age
so the first building built there is called number one
the second one is called number two
and even if it is on opposite sides it doesn't matter
Despite Japan for being a very very developed country
most of the people there still use cash to pay for everything
so for those of you who are planning to go to Japan
make sure to have some cash on you because not all the shops accept card
In Japan there is actually hardly any rubbish bins on the streets, yet there is no litter
Japanese are very good citizens and they try to keep their country clean so they bring their rubbish home
Now in Japan did you know they have a
cat island, rabbit island, monkey island, monkey mountain, horse cape, deer park and fox park
So in Japan schools are quite strict in their rules
so up until high school you normally aren't allowed to dye your hair
so what a lot of young Japanese students do is when they get into university
the first thing they do is dye their hair
If you guys are ever eating with Japanese people
remember never never never to stick your chopsticks vertically on your rice
and remember never to pass food chopstick to chopstick
these are performed at a Japanese funeral so it is said to bring bad luck
and you just wouldn't like to see something that's perform at a funeral done at he dining table
So guys, those were my ten fun facts about Japan
I hope you found it interesting and hopefully could take away something
and please comment down below about what other videos you would like to see me do
So I'll see you in my next video, see you guys! byeeee ! :)
