I think UK might be similar to japan as the social networking part of the job is quite huge in both countries. But dont think there are any other similarities

Norway.


I lived in Japan for several years, but I will admit I have never been to Norway, though I did some research on it when my daughter wanted to go there for a year or so of college studies.

If you Google the subject, there are lots of articles on Japan-Norway relations.

Both drive on the wrong side of the road! Both monarchies...


But yeah very few similarities.



While this may seem as an edgy opinion or so: Italy. Most of Italy's stereotypes are outdated or just plain wrong. Japan is similar in many ways:



monocultural, huge pride in their history, languages ending on vowels, language where everything is pronounced as written, right politics, emphasis on their "own" religion, machine industry, fashion, friendly people, cold winter, warm summer...etc etc.



Even the mafia if you will...the only difference being the japanese are far more nerdier and even more monocultural than italy.

Japan is a hybrid:

40% Germany
40% Britain
10% Norway
10% Iceland

But I would say Japan is so unique that actually no country in Europe resembles it.

It embraces a vulnerability mentality due to the unpredictable natural disaster (volcano, tsunami, earthquake). Only Iceland is close on this aspect. More unique is its "Accept it as the way it is" attitude. After disaster there is no panic. Everyone calmly lined up for relief.

Japanese and Italians are very different people.

Japanese are very quiet and considerate in public. Nobody calls over cellphone in train. Everyone texts.

Italians are noisy and talk loudly. Go to any restaurant in Little Italy in Boston or NYC, it is as noisy as a Chinese restaurant.
