Signs You've Been in Japan too Long
Play • 55 min

Have you been living in Japan for a while? On today’s show we talk about the things you do without thinking or that seem so natural to you, because you have been living in Japan for a while now, that you don’t think twice about them. It's only when you go for a visit back home and your friends and family make fun of you, that you notice them. Today, we discuss 10 behaviours and habits that make you think, “I’ve been in Japan too long”. For example, the thought of taking a bath without showering first makes you feel dirty, giving someone a gift because they gave you a gift, bowing while talking on the phone, having a huge collection of cheap umbrellas at home, and much much more. Enjoy the show!
