here's the thing-- if you're japanese, you already know this stuff and a thousand other little rules. if you're not, you'll always be looked at as an outsider... therefore someone who's not expected to know this stuff. the japanese will teach you if it matters.

I dunno. Personally, I prefer to be an informed traveler when I travel. But I see your point.

true, being informed is always important for travel. the cultural stuff that relates to the logistics of your trip is definitely worth knowing.

but even a foreigner who acts perfectly in japan is still seen as something of a trained monkey.

I don't recall now number for in Japanese. But in China is the same and it's because you say it like the word "die".

I just remember ichi ni san :/

And the same for 14. I've seen elevators in big buildings without 4 and 14 and 24 and also 13 wasn't there... and also they took out 2 and 15 because they were service floors for workers. So it was really strange.
