Clearly I am an Outsider
In Japan it is rude to eat in public. There are a very select types of food that is OK to eat in public. And they do not have trash cans out in Japan. This prevents littering. They recycle ♻️ everything! Restaurants and businesses that do you have trash cans are not playing trash cans. They are separated by plastic, aluminum, paper, glass, and then waste. Making Japan a very clean country.
Everywhere you go they have something that makes it kid friendly. From mini grocery carts in the grocery store. To play areas in grocery stores, malls, and airports. They have training bathrooms in areas. For toddlers train to use the bathrooms. This makes it very parent friendly. And they have training urinals and toilets in the women's bathrooms. As well as nursing and changing rooms doubled as one and it's amazing.
A lot of women in the states complain about how their husbands can't change a diaper because there's no changing table in the men's room. In Japan don't be surprised if you don't find a changing table in the women's room. Because the changing table is normally in the handicap/family room or the babies have a room entirely to themselves.
In Japan you see bikes everywhere. If you live in the Daytona area the best way I can describe it is it's like looking at Embry Riddle. If you ride a bike you have to get it registered and tagged. Other forms of transportation are driving, the train, the subway, and bus or taxi.
Start off driving is considered a profession in Japan. Not everyone does it. It cost $300 to take the test and get your license in Japan. And for the first year you're considered a new driver and you are required to have a magnet or sticker on your car telling people that you are a new driver.

On the train there is a priorities first Rall where are you let the elderly you're the pregnant or anyone that handicap have the seats first. I know that this is a role in the state in most other countries to, but they actually listen to this rule in Japan. That's not to say that young people don't sit on the train. But they are VERY likely to get up if they see someone walk into the train that needs it.
The subway is very much like the train.
I've never been on a bus in Japan so I can't tell you that experience.
And because driving is a profession in Japan taxi drivers are looked upon as a high status. They literally wear suits and white gloves when driving a taxi.
