tumblr’s perception of japan is getting really fucking annoying to be honest
-not everything is anime and mangas
-not everything is senpai and cherryblossoms
-yes our language sounds cool but can you all stop using it for ~tragically beautiful poems on a black background~ ESPECIALLY when we can tell its google translated shit
-you are being rude stop it

Learning this on guitar made me relove it, well done to Green Day on their induction to the rock and roll hall of fame :)

anonymous asked:

Can you do a top ten list of things a foreigner should never ever ever do, but does anyway?

i dont think i have 10 things to list but i can list things that annoy me yes

1) associate our language with some sort of ironic way to speak - yes it’s totally okay to use them for jokes and all but keep in mind things like “kawaii” and “sugoi” and “senpai” are woRDS WE ACTUALLY USE IN REAL LIFE TOO “*giggle giggle* she said kawaii” well i wonder why dumbass
2) associate every part of our culture with anime - literally nothing is anime except actual anime stop calling Hanyu Yuzuru an anime protagonist 
3) pls stop using our language for google translate poems i see this with Arabic and Chinese too just use English I promise you it sounds prettier
4) it’s considered really rude here if you don’t finish your food. we pick out every grain of rice in our bowls, every small piece of vegetable on our plates - food was considered art long ago, how food looks when it’s served to you, and how it looks when you’re finished with it is very important.
5) ALSO PLEASE DON’T PLAY WITH CHOPSTICKS, one very!!! important thing!!! to remember!!! is to not!!! pass food along hashi to hashi!!!!!!! when people die and their body is cremated, two relatives, with two sets of hashi, carefully pick out their bones to place in a container for safe keeping, so it is very important to not do this with food!!!!!!
6) also when people give/hand things to you don’t take it with just one hand, use both, like one common one is when you’re given receipts 
7) don’t!! be loud!!! talk quietly in public, don’t shout in stores!!! be considerate of the people around you!!!
8) especially at shrines holy shit guys behave yourselves if you’re gonna visit shrines and temples, also not that great to take pictures of them, ESPECIALLY GRAVES
