1: There are no cleaning staff in schools
Remember I said that Japan has a very polite Culture? So, education begins to be taught to its population from an early age, at school, but it is not an education like ours.
Here in Brazil, when we talk about education in schools, we immediately think about education in studies, but in Japan this goes further. There are no cleaning staff in the schools and who do this service are the students themselves, the aim is to teach them to respect the environment they live in.
2: Highest Life Expectancy in the World
Second in this list of 5 amazing facts about Japan, we will talk about the life expectancy of its population. On average, the population lives 86 years, here in Brazil it is 76.6 years, that is, the people there live 10 years longer.
Apparently, in addition to taking care of the environment in which they live, being polite to each other, they also take care of their own health.
3: Tattoos Are Malvistas in Japan
Unlike Brazil and some other countries, tattoos in Japan are not well regarded, but why is that? Traditionally, those who used tattoos were people linked to the Japanese mafia and criminal groups. And yet, this influences the way its population sees tattoos to this day, well, until we can understand.
So, if you have very exposed tattoos and you go to Japan, you will most likely see your population looking at you strangely.
4: Touching the Hand Is Considered Intimate Contact
Here in Brazil it is quite common to greet each other touching the hands and even giving a kiss on the side of the face. However, in Japan things are very different, touching another person's hand is considered something quite intimate.
If the hand touch is between Male and Female, this can be quite offensive to those Japanese who are more conservative.
