Japan looked so happy when I visited! Even though the most of Japanese people do not speak English, they are still cheerful and helpful. For example, their services are always perfect, I was so amazed and it made me so happy when I went there! They always smile and think about their customers all the time. I never saw Japanese shop assistants chatting during working, ignoring and being angry to costumers for no reason, taking extra money by changing the price on receipt, or playing with their phone like I experienced these in MANY Asian countries... everything is very organized but people look still happy!
