In the past few years, Thailand has become a popular destination for people in Japan who want to get out of the country.
So popular, in fact, that there are now plenty of online articles telling people from Japan not to do Yoga poses for Instagram inside Buddhist temples, and not to use restaurant bathrooms without permission.
I thought this comment, though not verifiable online, was especially upsetting:
Since there are many Thai people who work in Japanese companies, Bangkok is a city where there way are more fluent Japanese speakers than one might think.
Furthermore, because of the recent spread of anime and manga, many Thai people are studying Japanese out of personal interest.
Among the Japanese men who visit Bangkok, there are some who rate women they see on trains. This sometimes leads to claims by Thai women.
Would they yell the same thing on the trains in Tokyo?
