Voices in Japan

On this episode of the Voices in Japan podcast, Ben and Burke discuss some of the behaviors of Japanese people that you would normally not see in Western countries.  Why do people loiter in the magazine section of convenience stores freely reading the magazines?  With Japan having a very trustworthy culture, is it rude to count your change at the register after making a purchase?  Why can it be very stressful to be the first person to get on an elevator?  Will the new smoking laws introduced on April 1, 2020 actually reduce the amount of smokers at restaurants, bars, and other locations around the country?  Find out the answers to these questions and more in this episode, which was based on information found on Live Japan.com and You Could Travel.com.
