The Heart of Japanese
The examples are necessarily subjective, representing the views of the authors.
In fact, not all of the behavioral attributes may really be described as "ugly".
Some may be strange, confusing, or merely - but all are certainly different.
In addition, we do not pretend to be comprehensive; there are undoubtedly
may other types of behavior which Americans or Japanese may find offensive.
We welcome readers to send us further examples from their own experience.
Americans who live in Japan （or Japanese who live in America）will eventually
learn much of the information contained in this page on their own. Our goal is
to save culture learners time and trouble as they gradually work toward fuller
intercultural accommodation. Good Luck and Ganbatte !
