Japan- Myths And Stereotypes

This country has always attracted with its unusual civilization, the echoes of which fell along with films, books, stories of those few who have already been there. Now air travel to Japan is not something supernatural and in terms of affordability can compete with a trip to Norway or Denmark.

A trip to Japan will get rid of stereotypes


But still, there are a lot of stereotypes, and sometimes myths about luxury destinations in Japan, which are surprisingly persistent and tenacious in the minds of domestic tourists. Moreover, some historical myths about Japan were adopted by Hollywood and from there they spread throughout the whole world.Japan holiday destinations


Those who think that the Japanese cannot imagine life without sushi and rolls are also waiting for disappointment. In ordinary life, the inhabitants of the Land of the Rising Sun adore pork, various fatty sauces, miso soup and noodles with a lot of fried meat and vegetables. In general, the healthy nutrition of the Japanese is a myth. But the taste preferences of the Japanese in desserts and drinks to Europeans may at least seem strange.

Japanese fast food is not sushi and rolls

Tuna and lemon-flavored ice cream or spicy ginger and sea urchin caviar flavour pudding. And drinks, even world manufacturers produce purely Japanese tastes: Coca with the taste of baobab fruits, Pepsi with the taste of strawberries and milk, Sprite with the taste of salted watermelon – were created for those who love new tastes.

The Japanese themselves prefer to eat fish not in pathos restaurants, but in fish markets, which are in any city near the coast. All Japanese fish markets have small eateries where they will always cook bought fish or any other seafood that can be eaten right away with a local beer, which is subtly different from our usual taste.

Hospitality is the main reason for the development of Japanese society

But the spread of opinion about the politeness and performance of the Japanese is absolutely true. Residents of Japan welcome any visitor with the attitude of hotel and restaurant staff in resort places and cities of the country with their impeccable politeness and efforts to help tourists as much as possible.

This applies to almost the entire service sector, being rude and speaking rudely to the Japanese is simply a shame. And shame is the main motivator of Japanese society. The striking performance of the Japanese, who are ashamed to work poorly, is also associated with this.


And finally- geisha. Every second man who chooses Japan holiday destinations, dreams of a date with pretty and mysterious geisha who know how to feel the male soul. This is one of the most persistent stereotypes, fuelled by art since the 19th century. In fact, a meeting with a geisha does not promise any positive emotions for a compatriot. Because instead of young fragile girls, most likely a dreamy tourist will meet with an experienced master of geisha art of 35-40 years.
