We all know, we know: homes in Japan are slim and poorly insulated because they’re designed to be because light as you can so as to higher withstand earthquakes. But that doesn’t mean they’re don’t get insanely cool in winter and they are miserable to be in.

Deficiencies in central heating means running an ac, hiding under a kotatsu, huddling a carpet that is“hot heated rug, and on occasion even utilizing a kerosene-burning stove indoors–all the whilst starting the door or window to ventilate the space (and losing heat in the process) every hour in order to avoid inhaling vast levels of carbon monoxide–to keep hot. They should because you can’t bear to turn the hot water off and venture out into the cold again, you know something’s not quite right when you’re going to bed wearing socks, a sweater and a wooly hat as well as your usual pyjamas, or your showers take 10 minutes longer than. We’re all for security, but we’re additionally hoping and praying this one day science can come up having a material that’s ultra-light, super-insulating and affordable, and that Japan starts building houses out of it. Brrr.

10. Television

“I tried. I really tried to want it,” quoth one of our US article writers here at RocketNews24, “but there are only a lot of programs i could stay through where they consume something, switch to a close-up of someone’s hand that is shaky the foodstuff, wait three moments, then somebody shouts ‘umai!’” We hear you noisy and clear, good sir.

Japan may have brought us some quality anime throughout the years, as well as a handful of dramas that fans of Japan love with a passion, but much of development listed here is seriously bad. Dull cooking shows, variety talk shows, slapstick comedy involving individuals putting on wigs, bald caps, giant fake eyebrows and synthetic noses, travel and food shows where every meal sampled can be an absolute triumph and yet still a complete surprise… If you’re into variety shows with panels of the same B-list a-listers week after week, each with carefully crafted lines and jokes to reel down (and reactions to others’) and market people shouting “Eeeeeee

!” to express their amazement and disbelief at the least ten times per show – all presented in a structure that seems like the system simply splashed away on some brand new visuals computer software and is damn well going to get its money’s worth – then you’re in for a treat that is real. Ordinary people, meanwhile, create a point of switching our TV sets on only if we realize there’s a show starting that we especially desire to see or when we’ve run out of videos of cats to watch on the web. Sorry, Japan, you get television so very, very incorrect.

And that’s about it for the directory of pet peeves. We acknowledge that in the grand scheme of things they matter not a jot and life here in Japan remains pretty good, but it addittionally seems good to get it all down once and for all. Tell us into the commentary part if there’s such a thing about Japan you’d also prefer to get down your upper body. Remember, it’s maybe not moaning it’s catharsis if we share as a group.

If that was way too much negativity for you, be sure to return quickly when we’ll be launching our “10 things that Japan gets awesomely right”. See, we’re not completely miserable!
