Host to one of the most peculiar cultures on the planet, Japan is an extremely insular
country often misunderstood by outsiders. We all know the Japanese like to eat weird
things and watch weird shows but the following Japanese practices are sure to leave you scratching
your head.
Number one: High-tech toilets
The Japanese like to keep a lot of things
simple but their toilets are not one of those things. Toilets in Japan play music, spray
water in various directions, and even heat your butt.
You can choose from a wide variety of music, while you go your 21st century poop.
Number two: Streets with no names
If you are coming from the west, you might find it a bit weird, and even frustrating,
that many streets in Japan have no names. This makes it excruciatingly difficult to
ask for a direction- even for Japanese people.
Number three: Shouting servers\\
In Japan, service tends to be pretty
loud. Shop and restaurant staff are typically trained to yell greetings to show their enthusiasm.
It's even common for staff to use megaphones to promote sales and welcome customers.
Number four: Avoiding the number
Number 4 is extremely unlucky. Because the Number 4 sounds very similar to the word
of death in Japanese, elevator labels will often be missing a fourth floor and in
extreme cases, they will not even have floors 40 to 49.
Number five: KitKat Flavors
Baked potato Kit Kat, soy sauce Kit Kat, wasabi Kit Kat.. Not only do these flavors
really exist in Japan; they are among the most popular.
The Kit Kat chocolate bar is hugely popular in Japan, due to the similarity of the name
to the good luck phrase 'kitto katsu" which translates to 'you shall surely win'.
Number six: Vending machines
You can expect to find them everywhere from ancient temples to the top of Mount
Fuji, with a wide selection of goods ranging from fresh eggs and crepes to live lobsters,
and even used underwear.
Number seven: KFC on Christmas
Japan has settled for KFC as Christmas food way back in the early 1970s due to lack of
other activities and meats during the festive season.
And now a trip to KFC is a Christmas tradition in Japan. The chain even suggests customers
to place orders up to two months in advance, just to meet demand.
Number eight: Cuddle Cafes
Cuddle cafes cater to "emotional needs"
rather than "carnal desires" Services offered range from resting hands
on client's arm to gazing into eyes. A 20 minute power nap with a partner can cost
somewhere near $39.
Number nine: Suicide Forest
Suicide is a major issue in Japan. The
problem has been blamed partly on work-related stress. The forest is a 4-square-mile forest
that lies at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. It is an exceptionally quiet and private place,
which has helped it become a popular spot for suicides.
Number ten: Sleeping On The Job
The practice known as inemuri, is completely acceptable in Japan. The custom dictates that
if you're sleeping at work it means you've been working so hard you haven't been able
to get enough sleep at home. This leads employers to believe that the worker is incredibly dedicated
to their job.
Number eleven: Snaggle teeth
Following the example of several successful
music stars with crooked teeth, countless Japanese girls have transformed their perfectly
straight mouths into Snaggletooth havens. Youth of Japan are spending considerable sums
of money on attaining uneven teeth.

their looks in drastic ways!
