Japanese culture

When I first lived in Japan, my impression of Japan was like America! I felt Japanese like new things, and they are good at creating new ideas. I think this is because I was brought up in UK and as you know, Brits don't mind so much about the new world, as Americans.
Japanese people are very high-context, and tries to care others rather than them selves. That is why they obey rules, listen to people and give comments after the person has finished talking, and are strict to manners. Before eating, '' Itadakimasu'' is a word that means ''Thanks for let me eat'', and'' Gochisousama'' means ''Thanks for the meal''. I'm sure, if foreigners say this, they will feel delighted!
