After seven years in China, and a brief trip to Japan, i would have said Japan for sure… but after living in Japan just over a year, I realised it’s actually a terrible place to live as a foreigner (and possibly as a Japanese!). fhJ世界播

在中国生活了七年,并短暂地访问了日本,我肯定会说日本,…。但在日本生活了一年多后,我意识到,作为外国人(甚至可能是日本人),这实际上是一个可怕的地方。fhJ世界播


Japan is boring. And I'd never really been bored in my life before coming here. Maybe it would be better if i had a very high income and lived in Central Osaka or Tokyo… but a major issue is the Japanese. They are usually polite, and safe to be around, but I feel like a second class citizen for the first time in my life as a British guy who spends a lot of time in Switzerland. fhJ世界播

日本很无聊。在来这里之前,我的生活从未真正感到无聊。如果我有很高的收入,住在大阪中部或东京…可能会更好。但一个主要问题是日本人。他们通常很有礼貌,在身边也很安全,但作为一个在瑞士呆了很长时间的英国人,我有生以来第一次感觉自己像一个二等公民。fhJ世界播


I've felt isolated here, and think that's normal. The woman next door is petrified of me (and I'm only 1.7 m, 67 kg and usually in a shirt and tie). People speak English but won't try. Working like robots. Behaving like them too. fhJ世界播

我在这里感到孤立无援,我觉得这很正常。隔壁的女人被我吓呆了(我只有1.7米67公斤,通常穿衬衫打领带)。人们会说英语,但不会尝试。像机器人一样工作。举止也像他们一样。fhJ世界播


The cost of living is higher than I first thought too. Fruit and vegetables are astronomical (potatoes are sold individually, even for small ones). A night out with (just) a few drinks and (only) bar snacks costs at least 100 USD per person. Internal flights are relatively cheap, but the Shinkansen (bullet train) prices are extortionate. fhJ世界播

生活成本也比我最初想象的要高。水果和蔬菜是天文数字(土豆是单独出售的,即使是小的)。晚上出去喝几杯,吃点酒吧小吃,每人至少要100美元。国内航班相对便宜,但新干线(子弹头列车)的价格高得离谱。fhJ世界播


China has food/health and safety issues, shouting and lack of empathy, crowds, serious pollution of air and water, and rising prices… But I felt much more welcome, part of the community, and had a considerably higher sense of freedom in China (surprising?!). The Japanese are too well-behaved to the point of stifling each other, while in China people just want to get on with living. fhJ世界播

中国有食品/健康和安全问题,叫嚣和缺乏同情心,拥挤,空气和水的严重污染,以及不断上涨的物价…。但我觉得自己更受欢迎,成为社区的一部分,在中国有了更高的自由感(令人惊讶?!)。日本人太守规矩了,以至于互相窒息,而在中国,人们只想继续生活。fhJ世界播


I lasted 7 years in China. My flight out of Japan next month will mark 16 months here. fhJ世界播

我在中国呆了7年。我下个月从日本起飞的航班将在这里停留16个月。fhJ世界播


Given the choice, I'd live in China, and holiday in Japan. fhJ世界播

如果可以选择,我会住在中国,在日本度假。fhJ世界播
