10 More Interesting Things about Japan...

  • Grilled cow tongue and raw horse liver with onions and ginger are popular dishes in Japan. Both are very tastey!
  • Japan is the 10th most populous country in the world with a population we are told, of over 127 million people.
  • Melons are very expensive in Japan. One melon can exceed $400.
  • 85% of the coffee produced in Jamaica is exported to Japan.
  • When you slurp your noodles loudly in Japan, it is considered a sign that you are enjoying the meal. I've tried, but its actually difficult to slurp the way Japanese do.
  • Tokyo, the capital city of Japan, handles over 2000 tonnes of fish daily, making it the world’s largest fish market.  And Japan consumes 80% of the world's seafood.
  • The raised floors in Japanese buildings indicate where you should take off your shoes and put on your slippers. Tatami rooms indicate where you take off your slippers. I dont wear public slippers.
  • The term "Geisha" means "person of the arts". What I did not know is that the first Geisha were men. 
  • Japan experiences about 1500 earthquakes per year.
  • The life expectancy of the Japanese is about 84 years an average of 10 years more than that of the United States (according to the narrative). As many abulances Ive been hearing this year since the role out of the death jabs, I'd venture to guess those numbers will decrease.
