One of the first things I said to Rachelle when after we got to Japan was how it seemed like it was a few decades behind the west.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing, and I very much hope Japan does not follow the west into nihilism and self-destruction.
But I was thinking on a more superficial level. Specifically, the way people dress. It’s very conservative, like early 80s conservative. There doesn’t seem to be such a thing as business casual, everyone wears suits. And they carry briefcases.
Even at Disneyland, you won’t find anyone in short shorts or anything skimpy, long baggy pants are everywhere.
