Shuko Yokote

Showing emotion or hugging are not Japanese culture. When I started travelling I did not know how Japanese culture is good. I didn’t like having to guess what the others think; in Japan, even if a person says ‘yes’, sometimes the person means ‘NO’! It made me confused most of the time. I thought showing emotion makes it easier to understand a person.
