TV presenter of the project "Heads and Tails. Shopping" Maria Ivakova told on Instagram about what struck her in Japan.
The girl noted that a recent trip to the land of the rising sun opened up a new side of the Japanese for her. She said that in Tokyo, people are quite closed, they do not show feelings in public. Since there are many so-called "steps of politeness" in Japanese culture, people almost never say "I love you", this is considered too direct and rude.
Japanese women prefer not to rush the relationship and believe that there is no need to become a couple if you can just remain friends. Ivakova stressed that it is difficult for Russian girls, who often want more romance and tenderness, to understand such a point of view. "In general, the tendency towards asexuality is very popular among local youth," the TV presenter shared.
Ivakova noted the paradox - with all the closeness of the Japanese and ignorance of the relationship of love and sex, pornography can be found in many grocery stores, and almost every quarter has its own sex shop.
