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.

2 – Never feeling like you belong

While you may live comfortably and feel adapted to the culture you will probably never feel like you truly belong.

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.
