Retrocade has it's own hub now!
General things that might shock someone about Japan (especially if they were sent there, rather than being exposed to it for years through pop culture and choosing to move).
-Nickel and Dime mentality
-Exuberant costs involved
-Attention to detail (this isn't always good)
-Packed trains (and everything else)
-Queuing for everything
-Ridiculously long work week
-The awesomeness of no last call or regulations on when alcohol can/can't be sold
-"This is Japan"
-Unbending of almost any rule
-Stuff actually being turned into the lost and found
-Lack of crime
There's a really long corporate list.
