Asked yesterday what I did not like about Japan, I had to think hard. I could only come up with:
- ATMs close at 6:00pm
- Post Offices and Banks closed at the weekend
- Way, way too much packaging, especially plastic bags.
On the last point there is one behavior in Japan that I have not seen in other countries, of which I totally approve. If you buy any product that comes in a plastic spray bottle, for example, kitchen cleaner, or in a plunger type plastic container, for example shower soap, then you buy a refill rather than the whole container over again.
This probably happens in all countries now. I like it.
