TOP 3 WORDS TO DESCRIBE JAPANESE PERSONALITY

Hi,friends.How are you doing today?
In Tokyo,the governor has asked people to stay at home during this weekend 28 Mar and 29 Mar to prevent Corona virus from spreading.Stay safe and take care of yourself.

I will write about “The top 3 words to describe Japanese personality”from my point of view as a Japanese born and raised in Japan.

①POLITE(Sometimes too polite)
For ex
・Not talk to an staff if they look busy in restaurants
・Tell “thank you” with a hazard light flash even when you drive a car if other cars make way for you
・Bowing many times just for meeting clients
→When I was working for a trading company in Tokyo,I was in charge of importing food materials from around world.Every time I visit our clients(Japanese Oil manufactures),we had to read the client’s hearts and not to bother their feelings…So when we leave the company,bowing at least three time before closing an elevator in the building.
・Tend not to talk in public transportation such as in train or in bus.Of course not telephone.

②SHY
・We Japanese tend to be shy to talk with new people
・Most Japanese are not good at making a speech in front of many audience
→From my pint of view,we Japanese were educated by our parents to be modest and humble that might affect this personality.I’m also one of them,but While working,I always pretend not to be shy and have confidence.

③PUNCTUAL
We Japanese takes its time management very seriously. The Japan Railway (JR) and other connecting subways and train systems are known for their strictly punctual schedules. As such,when there is a delay of even a minute, the whole system gets thrown off. Trains often issue late slips for passengers to take to their employers if their trains get delayed. After all, it leaves a very bad impression if you’re late to work. If you got late to the office in the morning,you can’t make the excuse that the train was late here in Japan.It’s under control.

Thank you for reading this article today.I’m really curious about the personality of your country.If you have time,leave a comment.Thanks
I will keep up the best work from now on.

CORONA VIRUS IN TOKYO ③

Shoppers empty shelves in Tokyo after warning

Tokyo governor has asked people to stay at your own home this weekend tomorrow 28 Mar and 29 March to try and prevent an “explosive” rise in corona virus cases.

It seems to have caused people in the city to rush out and stock up on food and essentials.We had not seen this in Tokyo yet, though the pictures of empty shelves are a familiar sight by now from cities around the world where panic buying has been happening.Officials in the UK, Australia, States and Hong Kong have warned against buying more than you need and have sought to reassure people there are adequate supplies.

Tokyo has some 212 confirmed cases for a total of 1,200 in Japan.

There’s nothing left in the shelves at the supermarket.It’s in the middle of panic in Tokyo.It’s almost out of control here Tokyo.

PS:Since I’ve hung around my home to feel refreshed yesterday,I took some pics that is including beautiful cherry blossoms as follows.

CORONA VIRUS IN JAPAN ②

The map people detected Corona virus in Japan up to today 3/21/2020

Hi,guys.How are you doing today?
If you are living in Italy,France,Spain,Germany,Iran,US,it must be in the middle of panic situation such as out of stock for toilet papers,masks,sanitary napkins.
When it comes to Tokyo that I live in right now,toilet papers and sanitary napkins has started to come out in the supermarket form this week,but can’t find masks in any supermarkets or drug stores despite the restriction by law selling one as resale on Amazon or online store.The masks I have would be out of stock next week…

If you coughed without taking masks in the packed train in Japan…
Japanese are really sensitive for cough or sneeze due to corona virus right now.
I guess this same goes for your country.Last Wednesday 18 Mar,When I coughed three times in a row in a train on my way to work,the two elderly men standing next to me got away from me and moved to other one.Although it was surprising,if I were them,I would also go somewhere to reduce possibility getting infection.

According to Japanese government,the number of victims for Corona virus in Japan are as follows
(*As of 3/21/2020)
Infected people by Corona virus:988
The number of dead:35
The patients left hospital:212

TOP 3 WAYS TO SURVIVE HAY FEVER(KAFUNSHO) SEASON IN JAPAN

Hi,friends.How are you doing today?
Japan is in the middle of CORONA PANIC.
Most of the Japanese are looking for masks,toilet papers,sanitary napkins in whole day.We know that have to be calm down and put up with this abnormal affair,but since Japanese government is also out of control,have no choice but to do something we protect by ourselves….
By the way,I will write about HAY FEVER(KAFUNSHO) today.Because Kafunsho is one of the things that really annoy people coming from other countries.

WHAT IS KAFUNSHO??
It is said that 50% of Japanese living in metropolitan areas suffer from Kafunsho,a kind of hay fever caused by the pollen from cedar or Hinoki cypress trees.From March to May,lots of Japanese start to wear white masks made of gauze when they go out.Some even wear glasses and hats to protect themselves from Pollen,which causes various uncomfortable symptoms such as a runny nose,headaches,and itchy eyes.They say that more people have started suffering from Kafunsho in the last 20 years because the cedars and hinoki-cypress planted in the mountains or forests throughout Japan after the war have been neglected,are overgrown,and create more pollen.When floating pollen in the air mixes with dust and exhaust from automobiles,it causes kafunsho.

HOW TO SURVIVE FROM THIS TERRIBLE POLLEN IN JAPAN
①WEAR A MASK

Wearing a mask is really helpful to avoid invading pollen from outside.
As for me,I can’t live without one in Japan.

②USE A FACE SPRAY
If you are women and don’t wanna ruin your makeup with wearing a mask,you should use the face spray as following pic.It’s easy to use and the used for sensitive skin.

③TAKE A MEDICINE FOR POLLEN
If the above two ways were not good for you,you have to take a medicine for pollen.You can buy one on Amazon or any drug store in Japan.

HOW MANY HOMELESS PEOPLE EXIST IN JAPAN?

The paper says that “Pls spare some food for dinner today “

Hi,guys.How are you doing today?I hope you haven’t got Corona virus.
When I was talking with my friend Spanish today,she asked me if Japan has any homeless people.So I will write about the situation of “HOMELESS PEOPLE” here today.
It’s normal for people living in other countries to ask such a question partly because homeless people are seen less frequently in Japan than
in gigantic cities in other countries.There used to be over 25,000 homeless Japanese in 2003 and their shacks covered with blue plastic sheets were often seen along riverbanks or parks in Tokyo.But by 2019,the number of them has decreased to 4,555 in throughout Japan according to the Ministry of Health,Labour and Welfare,because now there are more self-support facilities and emergency shelters where they can stay.

My workplace right now is at Shinjuku that is in the middle of TOKYO.So I often see homeless Japanese like below pics.Interestingly enough,although some homeless Japanese are entitled to get welfare aid from government that is payed about 1,000USD per month,they do not rely on it due to great self-respect.
They don’t wanna feel that make you alive from other people.
Sometimes Japanese spirits are too complicated….

THE CORONA VIRUS IN TOKYO

Hi,friends.How are you doing today?
Is everything ok with the corona virus these days?
As you guys might know,it’s spreading throughout Japan right now and can’t figure out when it will be settled down.
In order to avoid infection in the packed train every morning,the company I’m currently working has decided to change the working hours 9am-18pm from 10-19 or 8-17.Some other gigantic companies force employees to stay in their own houses and work there.It’s almost pandemic here in Tokyo.
