I have heard of wives closing out their husband's bank account and running away, but I'm not sure if those stories are true.
The stamps have to be registered and I'm sure the important company stamps are kept in a safe place. There are also experts that can analyze the stamps to make sure they are authentic or fake. Seems like a bit of tradition that could be done away with. A written signature, in either Western script or Japanese characters, seems to be a little more convenient in my mind.
i think people i japan think twice before they go and steal something :) its very strict country in my opinion....well dont know ..i have never been there.
on the other hand stamps have one advantage ...the signature is always the same :D when i write my signature then its different every time i do it :D
Yes, people tend to return things to their owners here more than back home. I've heard stories of people forgetting bags on trains and nobody touches them. The bags wind up in the station master's lost and found and most people recover their belongings without losing a single thing.
Of course people do steal things here...the Japanese are just as human as the rest of the world but they tend to go for cash or jewelry in my observations here.
lol...my signature is always different too but the way we sign it can be measured and that's what counts.
The stamps are beautiful and ornate but not practical for me in daily life. My signature travels with me constantly and I never lose it!
i wish i could say the same about Czech beause here people steal everything XD i am sorry i say this but its true :D people are greedy and jealous, envy each other... but i guess it was always like this :) people dont change :)
one day when you leave Japan you will have at least nice thing to remind you that country :)
well it must be something inside them to be honest people...education, thinking, strict rules...fear? its quite interesting for me. would be worth to study behavior of people in Japan are you willing to be experimental rabbit? XD hahahaha
i think that if you didnt find out yet whats that "something" holding you there you will never get answer :) BUT i am sure you love it there because if you didnt you wouldnt go and didnt take pics as your memories
because if i moved to another country and missed place where i was born...i would love to go back there. i wouldnt think about moving to another country again :)
maybe its just your nature to know new places, different cultures and people of course....its inside you. free just like bird :D or no? you tell me :)
I do miss the shared cultural knowledge that I have with fellow Canadians (and Americans for that matter.) The ability to speak and be heard in matters of the community and how I will be governed. I miss my basic right to vote. I miss poutine, Timbits and double-doubles. I miss women who think for themselves and don't kowtow to men. I guess I miss a lot of things from back home but I still don't think I'll go back....at least not right now.
I have only been to Europe a few times but every time I go, I feel a bond growing stronger and a sense that I could fit in there. It's magnetic and pulling me closer.
i am sure when its the right time you will have the feeling you want to go back to Canada :) i know its something what can not be forced :) and yes you would fit in here perfectly if you came :D we all are crazy here XD
That's what I've heard. AND you seem to have a lust for life. Life is to be lived, not chained to a desk. When I visited there seemed to be a balance between family, work and leisure. I was envious because over here, it is all work and very little play. Makes Tom a dull boy... I shouldn't complain, the Japanese themselves have it even harder. :omg
yes i love to live :) and i am trying to see world and people different way. everything what i can see, hear, smell, feel...touch ...is interesting for me. i need to see "inside" the things and i love thinking about everything because then it opens you next door and you can see much more than before :) life can offer much more than most of people know or think :)
I wish a few more people in the world would think like that. But a lot of people seem to be caught up in the daily routine and chasing money or buying the next new thing...honestly...a lot of people just need to step back and take a breath. It would help a lot.
i know Tom and i wish the same but most of people must earn money to survive and dont think about anything else. its not only fault of "people" but its fault of system we have here. people are slaves and if they want to have little freedom then its bad and they are judged by others.
maybe its sad bit i dont believe much that we can change it :) we can just make us our own little world where we will have all what we wish ...thats what i do all my life :) i like to have my own rules and i am Aquarius so for me its very hard to listen to others :D
