10 things I hate about Japan April 27, 2009

Posted by lumierre9 in chit-chat.

1. most Japanese people can’t speak English!! and everything here is in Japanese…so it’s hard to do things if you don’t understand Japanese…

2. although some people may be able to speak English, their pronunciation is very bad, so it’s still ununderstandable…

3. a lot of people do suicide by letting themselves hit by train, and that makes the train late (well, I’ve never been affected so much, but my friends have ^^)

4. Japanese people are too shy that makes them kinda introvert, and when they want to ask for something they don’t look us in the eyes (me and my friends experienced it today…that’s impolite for Indonesian, right?)

5. the food is fine, but not as tasteful as Indonesian food…

6. I can’t download torrent from my dorm or campus!! (and my cousin said that his friend had an intel come to his house because he downloaded lots of movies and games ^^)

7. the cinema is expensive, and new movies show late here, and most of them are in japanese >___<

8.  well, actually everything is expensive here…foods are expensive…a bowl of ramen, costs about 400 yen (a cheap one)…you can get more than 5 bowls of noodles in Indonesia…books are also expensive…the Japanese language book that I was using, which only cost less than Rp.40000 (about 400 yen), is also published and sold here with a price of 2000 yen (5 times higher!!)

9. everyone here is so workaholic…they can work until late night…even my friend in my class said that the soonest her husband come home is at 11 pm…in the lab also the students usually go home after 7 or 8 pm…seems like they can’t enjoy their life…

10. being able to understand the language is not enough…you also have to learn kanji (which I don’t like most, because I’m not good at memorizing) to read lots of things around…
