Cultural differences to note:

If you are planning to visit Japan to watch the Olympics, here are some tips that you should take note of. This would help you avoid a culture shock due to the differences in circumstances and greetings that you might be used to. [showhide type=”post” more_text=”Read more about cultural differences” less_text=”Hide cultural differences”]

1. Japanese Hospitality – Omotenashi

To a foreigner, the Japanese Hospitality may seem too polite. The word omotenashi is being used by the media a lot to promote Japanese hospitality. The meaning of omotenashi goes way deeper than just proving outstanding hospitality as the original meaning is to entertain guests wholeheartedly. This is because, in Japan, they have a proverb: 「お客様きゃくさま神様かみさま」which can be translated to “the customer is always right” but many in Japan will prefer the literal translation of “the customer is god”.

2. Few trash disposal points

There are very few bins on the streets in Japan. If you are going to watch the show and want to dispose of your trash, it might be difficult to find a disposal point. Finding one may take a long time which results in you missing certain parts of the events. Thus, we would recommend you to bring a spare bag to store all your rubbish and dispose of it at the end of the event.

3. Japanese dates

In Japan, dates are written in the format [mm/dd/yyyy] instead of [dd/mm/yyyy] so do take note of this when you are looking at the dates of specific events. [/showhide]

Ordering Meals

 

Coming to Japan, there is definitely a language barrier. Furthermore, eating out can be a little intimidating if you can’t read the menu or if the menu is only available in Japanese. However, since the Olympics is such a large event, most food stalls and restaurants should have an English menu. Despite that, here are some phrases that you might encounter and can use when ordering in Japanese. For more, you can check this page out. [showhide type=”link” more_text=”Sample Phrases” less_text=”Hide Sample Phrases”]

1. If the menu is in Japanese, but there are pictures to supplement them, you can point to the picture and say:
“kore wa hitotsu kudasai” ー これはひとつください。(Can I have one of this please.)

2. You might want to ask for an English menu even if it was not being displayed. You can ask by saying:
“Eigo no menu ga arimasu ka?” ー 英語のメニューがありますか。(Do you have an English menu?)

3. Before entering the restaurant, the waiter/waitress would ask you how many people you are with:
“Nan mei sama desu ka?”ー 何名様ですか。(How many people?)

4. At a restaurant, when you call for the waiter/waitress, they might say:
“Gochumon okimari desu ka?” ー ご注文お決まりですか。(Are you ready to order?)

5. After you’ve given your order, the server will ask to confirm your order. They might ask:
“Ijou de yoroshi desu ka?” ー いじょうでよろしですか。(Will that be all?)

6. Asking for the bill in a restaurant:
“O kaikei onegaishimasu” ー お会計お願いします。(May I have the bill please?)

Apart from eating out at restaurants, you and your friends may decide to head out for some drinks, and go to an Izakaya. Izakayas are more local and thus usually only have Japanese menus. However, there are other places you can consider that might have English menus such as large yakitori chains. Some of these chains include Torikizoku, Yakitori Daikichi, Toritetsu, etc. For a survival guide to Izakayas and ordering your first beer, check this page out!

Fun Fact: 

Q: Unlike a world title match in boxing, in Olympic boxing sometimes the referee calls a knockdown even if the fighter is not knocked to the floor. Can you give a specific example of that?

[showhide type=”48″ more_text=”Answer” less_text=”Hide Answer”]

A: Even if you’re not knocked to the floor, if the fighter is taking too much punishment, focus starts to blur and is too battered to continue, the referee can declare a knockdown.

Riders often ride in close formation at high speed, and to brake in such a situation would cause a crash. Track bicycles also have fixed gears, so speed is slowly reduced by pushing backwards on the pedals. [/showhide]

Q: How are the weight differences between classes decided?

[showhide type=”111″ more_text=”Answer” less_text=”Hide Answer”]

A: By a process known as sequential classification – or an increase in a value by one each time. For men, with classes at 60kg, 66kg, 73kg, 81kg and 90kg, start at 60kg and add 6 to get 66kg. Now add 7 and you get 73kg. Next, add 8 and you get 81kg. Finally, add 9 and you get 90kg. The women’s classes from 48kg are likewise separated by differences of 4kg, 5kg, 6kg and so on. [/showhide]

Fun Fact: 

Q: Why do some shooters wear a patch over one eye?

[showhide type=”135″ more_text=”Answer” less_text=”Hide Answer”]

A: When their dominant eye is opposite to their dominant hand. It is difficult to make an accurate shot if your dominant eye and hand are not on the same side. 
Closing one eye while shooting would reduce accuracy so some athletes with their dominant eye and hand on opposite sides use an eye patch. [/showhide]

Fun Fact: 

Q: Skateboarding began when metal wheels were attached to a wooden board. What are the decks of skateboards made of today?

[showhide type=”138″ more_text=”Answer” less_text=”Hide Answer”]

A: They are still made of wood.
In the 1970s some decks were made of fibreglass, but since the 1980s decks have generally been produced using hard maple veneers. Hard maple is a strong, durable and flexible wood making it effective against shocks and friction. Incidentally, skateboards are produced using technologies employed in the manufacture of furniture. Many skateboard factories both in Japan and overseas started as furniture producers. [/showhide]

Fun Fact: 

Q: The shoes used in Sport Climbing are very different from those worn for other sports. In which ways?

[showhide type=”141″ more_text=”Answer” less_text=”Hide Answer”]

A: They are extremely tight
even to the extent that the toes curl up. When putting on their shoes, climbers squeeze their feet in so tightly to make it easier for them to cling on to holds on the wall with their toes. Also, the soles of the shoes are very soft with an extremely good grip to prevent sliding. [/showhide]

Fun Fact: 

Q: What are the smallest and largest racket sizes allowed in Table Tennis?

A: The official rules of the sport state that a racket can be of any size, shape or weight, but the blade must be flat and rigid and made of at least 85 per cent natural wood. Most rackets are similar in size – about 15cm wide and 25cm long, including the handle – and weigh less than 200 grams. [/showhide]

Fun Fact: 

Q: Tennis rackets can be strung with either synthetic or natural strings. What are natural strings made of?

[showhide type=”155″ more_text=”Answer” less_text=”Hide Answer”]

A: Cow intestines or ‘guts’.
Natural strings (known as ‘gut’) are elastic, resilient and offer a softer impact than synthetic strings. However, they can snap easily and are costly, so some players like to pair gut with a less expensive and more durable string.[/showhide]

Fun Fact: 

Q: Why do the handlebars of bicycles used in Triathlon point out towards the front of the machine?

[showhide type=”161″ more_text=”Answer” less_text=”Hide Answer”]

A: The rider rests their elbows on the base and grips the front of these ‘aero bars’ to lower their body position. By decreasing the cross-section of the body exposed to oncoming air, wind resistance is reduced, potentially enabling the cyclist to move faster.[/showhide]
