What are the differences of cultures between Japan and Myanmar?

Sae
There are many different things between Japan and Myanmar, but one of them is the ethnic groups。 There are more than 310 ethnic groups in Myanmar but Japan has no ethnic group. And, everyone in Japan is following the rules. Divide the waste and throw it away, and when you get on the escalator, you are lined up on the left side and stay quietly on the train. Every day we can see Japanese people who are going to work quickly.

How is the life of living alone in Japan?

Sae
To live in Japan, I think the most important thing is Japanese language. We have to speak Japanese even when shopping or communicating with other people. I was a little worried because I just go to Japan as a foreigner, I have no family, no friends, and must manage myself. However, Japan always take cares the safety of people, so I could only suffer from having difficulty hearing the quick pronunciation of Japanese. As the station is always broadcast, we can confirm where we want to go so that there is no mistake. If you can speak Japanese properly, I think that there is no fear to live in Japan at all. It is because technology is high and it is safe wherever you go.
