I’ve just met a guy from Japan. And considering that he is coming from highly efficient and organized country, I can only imagine the culture shock that he is going through!
Some differencies that I noticed is that they have strong culture of pseudonyms and alter ego identiites. Social networking is completely different ball game. They don’t like their real life identities revealed online.
Instead they are fostering their online relationships completely differently. Seems weird for high tech country doesn’t it? 🙂
Ofcourse he had iPod touch backed up with iPad. When I asked him, why didn’t he get an iPhone, he said that he doesn’t want to pay for high price of 3g in Japan.
