4 Things in Japan that Get Expats Crazy
1 – Miscommunication
Even with Japanese language skills the rich cultural background of Japan can create a huge gap in communication.

3 – Rules & etiquette
Everything in Japan has its own rules and etiquette, while it is helpful in a way, it often leaves little space for spontaneity.
