WHY INDIA IS BETTER THAN JAPAN

WHY INDIA IS BETTER THAN JAPAN

WHY INDIA IS BETTER THAN JAPAN







Hello Reciter, welcome to our website. I’m Biswajit and today gonna share the topic about somehow why India is better than Japan.

India and Japan located in two geographical areas have a lot of differences between them. The Followings are the reasons why India is worthier than Japan.



1.Cost


India's global low cost and status as a developing nation contrasts clearly with Japan's high-end and high-tech luxury. Japan is vitally more expensive for several reasons, but both countries grab the attention of huge numbers of travelers every year.

 

 

India is very affordable as compared to Japan. At nearly every price range, travelers find India to be a favor value. If you want to travel on a casual budget, India will reward your wallet with amazing gems at highly low prices. But if you want luxury, India also holds out terrific service, food, and accommodation options at prodigious values.

 

 A week in India can cost you about $198 (per person), while a week in Japan may cost you around $921.

 

As we know that different broadband data and internet speeds are provided at different prices along with different prices. And it is quite marvelous that India provides the cheapest internet connection than Japan.

 

 
2.Indian Food


Japanese food looks good and healthier but Indian food is better as compared to the taste.

Best Traditional Japanese Foods and dishes are Sushi, Tempura, Yakitori, Tsukemono pickles, Kaiseki, udon, soba, and many more which are benefits for potential health .but it tastes like Umami or savory taste which is a combination of sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness. Overall Japanese People eat traditional food as well as seafood for being good diet purposes.

But if you are looking for something spicy food, then Indian food is the best suggestion which is needed to be noted. Indian dishes consist of a variety of regional and traditional foods native to the Indian subcontinent. Given the diversity in soil, climate, culture, and occupations, these cuisines vary largely and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits.


Why Indian foods are so delicious?


The following are the main reason behind savory taste.


 Spices – Indian cooks see spices. They use a large amount of abundant variety of spices and their cooking techniques maximize the savor in the final product. An experienced Indian cook uses spices like a painter who uses colors that they have grown to be very pleased with.


 Tradition – Recipes are handed over from generation to generation and improved and adapted based on personal taste and serviceable ingredients. If you practice a single recipe for more than hundreds of years, you are going to get it right.


 Variety – India is a big place, with a lot of different types of culture to extract. They have many languages, climates, and food types and styles, and they all endeavor different kinds of awesomeness.


 Health – Indian food is prepared with health in attention. The spices are used are worthy for you and tasteful also. The other ingredients are also used with equity and are good for health, such as coconut, beans, rice, and many nutritious vegetables.


 Color – You eat with your eyes and nose before you eat with your mouth and Indian food is both odorous, and colorful.


 Experience – Indian food provides an exclusive experience that many people would remember for their whole lives if they don’t take Indian food on a regular basis.

 

On standard, Indian restaurants are cleaner, smell better, and have a more comfortable climate than most other types of restaurants. The food is generally more difficult to cook and is not always more high-priced. Also, the people who cook and dish up it are generally familiar and sympathetic to meet and talk to, almost as if they actually enjoy what they do.


3.Indian Wedding


Marriage The ceremony is the process by which two people form their relationship public, official, and permanent.


 At a traditional Japanese wedding, the bride and groom generally dress in up Japanese wedding kimono. The bride dresses up in a white wedding kimono called “uchikake”. Wedding ceremonies in Japan can be interior, religious, and are commonly a combination of both. But a wedding ceremony isn’t needed at all to be formally married. In fact, Japanese law only considers a marriage contractual once it’s registered with the city or municipal office. The casual problem is that a Japanese wedding is an all-day event and they don’t want to celebrate on that high level as compared to India. There is no such joy of celebration, they just follow the custom rules and let on to join only limited people.

 There are so frequent cool wedding rituals found around the world and each has its own well-defined attributes. Indian weddings are known for their notorious and unique characteristics from the vivid attire to Mehendi (also known as henna). Indian weddings traditionally last three days—all rituals considered. The first of these rituals is Misri, which attain several days before the actual wedding day. In this ceremony, the marrying couple switches prayers, flower garlands, and gold rings. Traditionally, the groom’s parents attend the bride with a lot of gifts and misri (rock sugar), representative of sweetness in the future.


The following are some of the traditional wedding rituals that make Indian weddings so extraordinary.

 

The Sangeet party can be held alone or combined with the Mehendi ceremony. The celebration exists of the families of the bride and groom (or just the women) obtaining together for song and dance.

The Mehendi ceremony takes place just one day earlier than the actual wedding. Only women attend this event in which elaborate patterns are drawn on their hands and feet with Mehendi (also known as henna).


On the morning of the wedding, the Haldi ceremony is taken. In this tradition, both sides of the family spread a combination of oil, water, and turmeric over the skin as well as the clothes of the bride and groom.


In traditional Indian weddings, the custom takes place under a Mandap, which is a four-pillared faith. It is customary for the Mandap to be enhanced with lighted colors.

In the Hindu tradition, the groom ties a mangal sutra around the bride’s neck rather than alternate wedding rings. The Mangalsultra is nothing but a necklace with two gold pendants. The groom ties the necklace with three knots to indicate a powerful bonding for 100 years.

One of the most weighty parts of Indian weddings is the alive colors found all over the celebration. From the outfit to the flowers and decoration, colors such as gold, red, orange, and coral primarily fill the room.

The groom’s attire is not as elegant… the groom will wear a Mojari and Sherwani at a traditional Hindu wedding. As for the guests, most women at the wedding will be wearing a Lengha or a Sari. The bride and groom as well as the guests generally dress in loud color to enjoy fully.

 

4. English and communication


In a recent survey, studies found that less than 30 percent of Japanese speak English at any level at all. Less than 8 percent and possibly as little as 2 percent speak English fluently, which proves that they are more into their own mother tongue rather than any other language. For Japanese people, being able to speak English usually doesn’t feel crucial but rather like a non-compulsory skill that’s fine to have but isn’t vital. This is mainly true outside of Tokyo, in areas such as the Kansai zone with Kyoto and Osaka, where there is a fewer refugee who offer a connection (or a chance) to speak English. And still, when it comes to foreign languages, only English is educated in schools.

India is the most English speaking nation but when it comes to as the second language. The population plays the leading part in this. India is second highly populated in the world with raising economic values and also has an enormous promising to go far.

Diversity, we don’t have an ordinary language for business, political communication nationwide. Hindi, is their official language but it is not said across the nation on a huge scale. Japanese, they have a familiar language across the country, but in the case of India, we don’t have one.

Indians who know English will always try to expose that they know English. English signifies in Indian's minds, better culture, better education, and higher intellect. Indians who know English often mingle it with Indian languages in their conversations. It is also frequent among Indians to unexpectedly move to speak fluent English in the middle of their conversations. English also delivers as the communicator among Indians who speak any other language. English is important in part of systems –financial, educational, business – in India. 

  

5. Dancing & Singing


Japanese people feel that it’s strange to suddenly sing and dance in public as they shy in nature.  

Culture in India although separate and varied still binds the country together in the form of Indian dance and music. Most Indian people are very open-minded and always ready to dance and sing at any time.


6. Family Emotion


Most Japanese feel somehow shy in communicating their emotions. Large portions of the Japanese family don’t expose their sentiments that too much to one another. Now and then, an individual’s feeling may make it disturbing for a whole gathering and in view of this, most are arranged in their Japanese family not to adequately express their emotions. Additionally, interacting with it over and over again loses its loyalty. Emotionally, however, what is socially pleasant plays a vital role in how much we expand and invest ourselves in others? In India, it is completely all right to do assured things with family and friends, like taking help in taking care of kids, etc.

Indians are used to going out of their way to make others feel enjoyable as well as comfortable. So are people in the West, since they too have knowledge of a thing or two about being hospitable. But there are differences in the way we may enhance this cultivation.

It is thoroughly all right in India to ask personal questions of strangers, like how many children they have, why someone is not married, etc, which makes it so special.

 

 

7. Digital Payment


Japan has earned an honor for being a high-tech country, creating some top-of-the-line electronics, and trying the best from their devices as well as digital experiences. However, there’s one area where the country is back of the curve: cashless transactions.

Cashiers in Japan are highly adept at handling cash – so much so that cash transactions are very faster and less difficult than digital ones. The Japanese also largely see cash as more secure, as they aren’t bound to personal information. There have been several security branches crosswise Japan, making consumers opposed to exchanging cash for digital payment methods. People are also concerned as they were afraid of overspending if they move from cash to cashless transactions. Finally, both businesses and consumers are distressed about the costs involved in stores, especially small businesses. Not only are there momentous setup costs, but there are also transaction fees involved in accepting cashless payments but not as much compared to India.


But Indian people think that cashless payments are helping to save time and money. One does not essential to withdraw cash to book a cab or pay the neighborhood dealer, many of whom now acquire cards. Every time you run out of cash, digital payments make it desirable to finish your current work at the market or go home at your advantage without withdrawing cash from the ATM. It is also very refreshing to see the change in digital spending management of Indians in the past 3 years. Internet-based shopping known as online shopping spends now account for almost 35 percent of all Mastercard card which spends. Government support as cashless transactions boost fast growth, the progress of an economy, and more digital transactions also mean added data will apply to the government for research and better fabricating of policies. For India, this could be a vast game-changer – corruption can be checked and the whole financial growth can be mapped in a planned manner.

4.Fake food.

In japan shokuhin sampuru (食品サンプル), in the early Showa period, late 1920s candle designer and artisans designed food model to show the customers which were not normal at that time in Japan. Nowadays to make fake food that looks like the real one these foods are made by experts. These foods are shown in the restaurant to attract hungry customers. Usually, these fake foods are more expensive than real food. 


5.Rabbit island.


in 1925 these some chemical weapons scientists brought several rabbits to Okunoshima Island to do tests. Later the animals were freed and started to multiply. Now the island is full of them, it attracts thousands of tourists every day. The rabbits are more friendly to humans and they even take selfies with them. Hunting them on that island is prohibited. you cant bring a cat or dog to that island. 


6.Purikura machines.


Taking a photo in a booth is an old tradition, but Japan tries its best to make it as exciting as possible. In Japan the photo booths are called, called purikura,  where you can edit photos, you can add tons of different backgrounds, funny stickers, or textAlso, you can send those pictures to your Mobile.



7.People pushers.


In rush hour the subway and train stations are overcrowded. So in those times the station staffs and some part-time workers push the people inside to fit in the train.



8.Umbrella parking lot.


Before going inside a building, you can “park and lock” your umbrella just like you do

with your bike. Now you can be sure no one will take it, and your umbrella won't make any wet spot on the flooryou can find the umbrella rack in most of the Govt offices, hotels, public places.


9. Millions of vending machines.


Japan has more than 5 million Vending machines! In Japan, it is normal to work late hours. So for the late hour workers vending machines is like a blessing. They can get ready-made food from them. You not only get snacks and drinks from the vending machine but also you can buy basically anything from liv fish to your underwear from those vending machines. is not that interesting?



10. Tokyo's biggest resident.


There was a Godzilla who gets the citizenship of Japan in 2015, in Tokyo's Shinjuku ward. . The authorities provide him a certificate stating his own residency, and also offer him a job – letter the Godzilla became the tourism ambassador. That's not the end after that they even made a Godzilla head 171-feet above ground at Toho, the movie studio that made the original movie back in 1954.



11.Train delays make headlines.


Punctuality is a really big thing there, and train stations do everything possible to avoid a delay. Suppose a train is ten minutes late, the railway companies make sure that they issue a delay certificate for all the railway workers and passengers who missed an important work because of this.  If the train is late longer than one hour, they give an official apology in newspapers.




12. “Silent” Karaoke.


It works like its own name. There is a special microphone with a cone that covers your mouthIt covers up most of the sounds to be heard when you sing a song. This cone blocks up to 70 % of the sounds to go outside. It is really a good device for the people who don't want to disturb their neighborhood and for people who are shy to sing in public. Japan has many interesting gadgets .


13.Polite slurping.


While in many other countries slurping is considered rude, in Japan it’s a way to show your appreciation of the dish. If you don’t slurp when you eat noodles, then the chef will think that you don’t enjoy the food, or that it’s cold.


14. Face napkins.


Usually when you eat a burger there some ketchup or mustard sauce around your mouth and it is not good to see and sometimes it makes us uncomfortable. So the Japanese fast food restaurant owners come up with a very interesting solution to this.  They serve the burger with a special napkin which covers the face of the guest who feels shy about looking irregular while eating. 


15. Water-saving sinks.


They’re located right over the toilet tanks. The idea is simple: first you wash your hands over the sink, then it goes straight to the tank, and finally, you flush the toilet when you’ve done your business. So, you save water by using it twice.


16. Strange mayo


It is not that the Japanese add some strange ingredients or recipe in the mayo sauce. But they don’t eat it with salads, meat, and sandwiches; in Japan, people usually use it as a topping for ice-cream or on pancakes.



17. Naps at work.


In Japanese culture, dozing off at the workplace – or inemuri – is considered a sign of being a hard-working person who’s very committed to their job. That’s why inemuri is so common, and no one thinks it’s a bad thing. Some people even fake it!


18. World’s shortest escalator.


You can find it in the basement of More’s Department Store, which is located in the city of Kawasaki. The escalator has only 5 steps and is only 33 inches tall.


19. Canned food restaurant.


For most the people canned food doesn't sound like good taste food. For most people, canned food doesn't sound like good taste food... But there’s a whole chain of restaurants all over the country where they serve only canned food. But the customers can choose more than 300 different types of food from this and it is really famous.


20. Doll village.


The village of Nagoro used to have a population of 300 people, but less than 40 residents live there now. A local artist, Tsukimi Ayano, made over 300 life-size dolls, most of which look like former residents; and they’re located in various states of action. For example, there’s a whole classroom of them in the village school that was closed a while ago.


21. No 4’s.


It’s common for Japanese culture to avoid the number 4 because it’s considered to be very unlucky. That’s why some buildings don’t have the 4th floor, stores don’t sell a set of cutlery for 4, and the number of guests to some event can’t be 4.


22.Blue traffic light.


They use a blue color instead of green for traffic lights. The reason for that hides in their language: historically, there was only one word for both colors. When traffic lights first appeared in the country, they were as green as anywhere else. But that green color was still called blue. To make things right, the government decided to use the bluest shade of green possible.


23. Cleaning classes.


Japanese kids learn how to clean in many schools because it’s a part of their education. They mop their classrooms and hallways, do dusting, and even clean the bathrooms. Teachers believe it’s a great way to raise responsible citizens.


24. Footbath train.


Take the Tsudoi tourist train to get the most comfortable sightseeing experience. This train has footbaths built of aromatic cypress wood and filled with warm spring water that can soothe the pain in your joints. So you can soak your feet and enjoy beautiful views at the same time while traveling from Nagoya to Yunoyama Onsen.


25. Futuristic toilets.


Toilets in Japan are very high-tech. To use one, a person should know what all those buttons are for. There’s a variety of functions, including heating the seat, spraying warm water to clean the user up, and even playing music.


26. Crazy ice-cream flavors.


The Japanese love weird food combos. That's why finding an ice-cream flavored with horse meat, cactus, charcoal, squid ink, garlic, or chicken wings won't be a problem here.


27. Space-saving parking lots.


Since Japan is a densely-populated country, they don’t like to waste space. That’s why their parking lots have a smart system. They’re designed like multi-level garages.


28. Robot-run hotel.


In a hotel in Nagasaki, robots are a big part of its staff. It’s called the Henn-na which translates as “strange”. The human-like androids meet the guests, clean the rooms, carry luggage, make coffee, and even smile. However, real people work there too to recharge the robots and supervise how they perform their duties.


29. Café companion.


Sitting alone in a café and enjoying your coffee and food is common for most people around the world. But in the Land of the rising sun, you’ll get a huge plush Moomin to sit next to you in one of the cafes, so you don’t have to eat alone.
