1. Unquestioned conformity
Americans have the saying, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.” (Stand out and you’ll get what you want.) Japan’s response is, “The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.” (Stand out and get put in your place!)
2. Obscene Prices
$1000 (USD) for a freakin watermelon?!! I don’t care if it’s shaped like a triangle!!
