In addition, I was pretty surprised they took vacations quite easily. Several teachers at school and my hostmother had one or several weeks off from work. Needless to say, all of them can’t have the same sense of value regarding that. However, many Canadian I know seem to take that for granted as their rights. In contrast, we’re unwilling to take breaks even if we’re entitled to paid leave, generally speaking. That’s because we tend to be concerned that taking leave will give somebody else troubles.


Team play culture works better when you’re in a jam together or have to cooperate something together. Practically, the Japanese helped quite well with each other and follow public order even after the serious disaster occurred on March 11th, 2011. We’re educated to put up with personal minor complaints and think of everybody else. I feel that’s why Japanese organizations seem to work more smoothly as a rule.
