Japan is highly bureaucratic as well. Decisions affecting national policy are often made by ministries with substantial power and influence and ties to business and industrial groups. As a result, it is often said that Japan lacks the pragmatic approach to change that is common in Western democracies, and this is seen as contributing to Japan’s extended economic malaise.

He states, “the Japanese educational system aims to produce a high average level of achievement for all, rather than excellence for a few… Being average and boring here is the very essence of society, the factor which keeps the wheels of all those social systems turning so smoothly” (96).

For example, close friends that usually go out together talk in “honne” but during work or talking to older people, Japanese mostly talk “tatemae”. They talk in tatemae usually with people that they are not close with because they would worry what they would think of them and a fake smile is also part of tatemae.

For them, ‘bilingualism is eliminated as a luxury that they cannot afford’ and consequently, ‘Japanese monolingualism is the outcome, if not the intended goal’ of minority education (p.178). This is evident in the case of young returnees from China who accepted the priority of learning Japanese over maintaining Chinese because Japanese proficiency was necessary to fully participate in Japanese society (Tomozawa,
When people become a part of a new community or at least visiting an open community they 'll notice there are differences in every community. From the way people act to their culture, every community is different. Such as how in Japan it is considered rude to give tips unlike in the USA where it is prefeared if you do tip. Or how a lot of Middle Eastern coutries force people to be nearly completely covered while Western and Southern Europian countries mostly allow people to wear what they want.
