Things you should learn from Japanese

They look always busy

5. Productive

They look always busy. So the rule if you wanna make an appoinment to Japanese are don’t mention the time. They will just open their schedule and say which time they will be free to meet you.

6. Privacy

This one is the best Japanese culture that I love !
