This part I’m thankful for when yours truly is tooling around in cargo shorts and a tee on weekends. I then went to Seoul once from Taiwan and felt trashy all vacation. You’ll actually get a look of disgust from many Koreans if you dress casually
It was not bad there was a few castles and stuff around but it’s nothing like Tokyo or Kyoto. Technically I was there for work, though not much work to do lol. I’m not looking a gift horse in the mouth.
I might think more immigrants outside of Tokyo, as Tokyo itself is getting more Japanese moving there as are some other cities. Nagoya has a lot heavy industry which immigrants are doing more work there. (A lot people from Brasil in Central Japan as well some Taiwanese)
So during the summer you don’t wish you could just remove every last bit of clothing on you and it’s still too hot, even in the shade?
I could for example wear suit and tie in Germany in the summer, it wouldn’t be the least bit uncomfortable even if it makes me feel awkward (I hate those kind of dresses), in Taiwan it’s going to cause me to die. In the winter, if there’s a cold snap, it’s probably fine in Taiwan, but there’s a reason natives don’t wear a whole lot of clothing in the tropics…
Someone’s trying to convince me to go for that, you know do blue collar work in Japan. How are they treated? Is it anything like SE Asian workers treated in Taiwan where they’re basically prisoners? He thinks that the Japanese will bend over backwards to treat people like me well, but I’ve never been there, and I’m not sure Japan’s work environment is better than Taiwan’s.
A lot of people who been to Japan many time all says don’t live there, it’s a great place to visit but not to live.
Well many people do like to live there and some do not, so should visit first and if you can visit the different cities and regions your interested in. Working hours in Japan are less than Japan is most cases (not all, but Taiwanese seem work longer and harder) and industry safe work areas seem better to me.
The one good thing in Taiwan is warmer winter weather, so like today can eat on the waterfront and have nice meal in 25c temps while my Japan is like 15.
