I laughed when I saw ''The relax attitude toward sex (lack of Judeo-Christian shame about nudity, porn, etc.) ''

Too relaxed I must say. :p.


Anyways, I love everything here! Though some Arubaito people don't have work ethic lol. I also love the way they do service here. I mean as a customer. :p. So nice.

No I've never been to Japan, but on the way. That's what I saw from the photos and movies. The list made a further orientation.
Oh, my mistake!

The thread is " What DO YOU LIKE about living in Japan?" and I just foolishly assumed you had lived here before.

Help yourself to the sandwiches.

I love convenience stores. They have everything you need for daily lives, and they open 24 hours. I believe that Japanese convenience stores are the best!

I don't live in Japan, but the main reason to like Japan is its food, I really like too much Sushi food. And prefer to go only Sushi restaurants or Japanese food restaurants to eat Sushi.

Did you notice the thread title?
Yes, I have read the thread title. I only just express my feeling about Japan's restaurant food which I most like. And in this world, everyone can free to express their feelings. I am sorry too if anyone have a problem with this comment.

I like Japan because people leave me alone. I get to sit on the train and the seat next to me will be the last vacant seat. I can walk down a street and people handing out fliers will hand them to everybody but me.

I also love the freedom. I'm not Japanese, so I'm not expected to act like I am. I can do whatever I want, and nobody is shocked or surprised because I'm expected to be different.

I like being able to drive in front of a cop car with their lights and cop helmets on, and not pulling over to get a ticket.

I like the fact that my wife deals with the bills, and all I have to do is hand over my salary.

I like the fact that I was able to raise a family, and neither of my children know anything about illegal drugs.

I like the fact that christmas isn't overhyped, and I can survive the holidays with minimal psychological damage.

Most importantly, I love the freedom. There are only a few laws that cops care about here, and they are easy to remember. Don't steal, don't kill, and don't poundcake.

I can drink beer on the beach, in parks, on my lawn, and at 4am in front of the cop box. I can take a leak alongside the road without being arrested for indecent exposure, I can comfort a crying child without being put in prison for a few decades and then being labeled a sex offender for the rest of my life. I like being able to oggle girls and them not taking offense. I like being able to have a barbecue in my front yard without worrying whether or not it's national "no soot day".

Mostly, I like being able to walk down the street and not have to worry about where I am or who is there with me.

I do miss the beer machines, though.

I came here for a brief visit to Tokyo in 2001 and was attracted by the styles of fashion & trends. I love how the Japanese can mix the modern fashion trends with the historical beauty and tradition of the kimono. I have done a lot of deep research into the history of the geisha/maiko culture and life and love Kyoto for this reason. Since I have moved here in 2006, I started to work as a freelance photographer which has pushed me into publishing my own Magazine/Website to share information (serious & funny) about the places/things I have seen & experience during my time here.

Having been in the U.S. for a month now, I can safely say I do like convenience stores in Japan if only because I can get served in a reasonable amount of time and don't watch clerks sitting around doing absolutely nothing whist one register is being manned and a line of 5-10 customers wait, don't witness people having screaming swearing fights with each other in front of children, never have to deal with surly clerks who apparently blame me for their unhappiness with their life choices, customers who will threaten a clerk because they got to the store too late to buy a lottery ticket, and virtually every other form of ill-mannered behavior one can reasonably think of and a few which any half-sane human reacts to in bafflement and wonder that these people haven't been slaughtered on general principles upon first encounter.

Agree on the sandwiches, though.

Basically all of this, plus:

- not being able to understand every sign, text and conversation around me, makes me feel very at ease. I can stop information coming to me the moment I do not focus on something.

- the random conversations you strike up in a bar with local salarymen

- the insanely greesy zeppin cheeseburger at Lotteria

- order, like knowing exactly where the train doors open, etc

- my family in law keeping a healthy distance

- your house is your sanctuary. no random people suddenly popping in for a visit.
