    Things You Should Never Ever Do In Japan

    Everybody knows about this beautiful, distant land where the sun rises. Culture, customs, and traditions that are as old as history make Japan a must-visit destination for any traveller. A traveller to the country is likely to encounter stark cultural differences and receive some strange looks along the way.

    Tina, a traveller and TikTok creator with over 1.3 million followers, has compiled a list of things you should never, ever do in Japan.

    TikTok videos by Tina warn that eating and drinking (yes, coffee counts!) is a no-no and that talking on your phone while riding public transportation is disrespectful to other people and the environment. Find out what else you shouldn’t do in Japan by reading on!


    Don’t try on clothes without a face cover. This prevents makeup from staining the material.

    Don’t pull open the taxi door. Japan’s living in 3020, remember? They open automatically.

    Don’t stand on the wrong side of the escalator. Keep left if you’re not in a hurry.

    Don’t eat or drink while walking. Drinking coffee counts too. You will get judgy stares.

    Don’t walk into fitting rooms with shoes on. Take them off before entering to keep everything clean.

    Don’t blow your nose in public. It’s bad manners and just kinda gross. Sniffle it back in or go to the bathroom to let those boogers out.

    Don’t leave your backpack on inside public transport. No one wants a backpack in the face.

    Don’t put your bag on a free train seat. That should be a universal thing.

    Don’t place money directly into the cashier’s hands. Put it on a tray.

    Don’t poke or squeeze fresh produce at supermarkets. Trust me, they only put out the best ones, just grab and go.

    Don’t go barefoot or wear house slippers into the toilet. Use toilet slippers.

    Don’t get into PDA. Just save it for the hotel room, okay?

    Don’t bargain the price. It’s not like the other Asian countries. In Japan most things are legit.

    Don’t expect everyone to know English. Try to learn some Japanese.
