Between Japan and Italy, I found that there were a lot of cultural differences. First of all, people in Italy make a gesture a lot while talking to someone. They try to express how they feel by making a gesture more than talking. In Japan, most people don't make a gesture to express their feelings so that was interesting to me.
Second, there are a lot of pickpockets in Italy. I heard some of my friends got pickpockets there. In Japan, people go to the bathroom in a restaurant even though they leave their wallet or phone on the table. You can see that People in Japan are less careful than tourists from other countries so they are likely to be targeted as a victim of pickpockets.
Third, people in Italy drink coffee or espresso a lot more than we do like every day. We drink a cup of coffee in the morning to make ourself awake. In contrast, people in Italy drink espresso in the morning not coffee. Also, when we eat spaghetti, we use both a folk and a spoon. On the other hand, people in Italy use only a folk when they eat spaghetti.
However, there are also some common points between Japan and Italy. They have four seasons in a year. Both of Japanese foods and Italian foods are known for one of the best foods in the world. They both have strong nation brands. Products made in Japan or made in Italy are supposed to be great and safe. In Italy, products such as clothes, bags, and food are main ones. In Japan, products such as cars, and technology product are main ones.
These cultural differences make me more interested in knowing about other countries. I hope I can get to know other differences that I still do not know in the future.
