Today’s post won’t be any different, so better get ready …. ~ I’ve already explained why I think that it’s usually harder for Western women to find a Japanese man than it is for Western guys to find a Japanese woman. Today I want to list a few more possible reasons why Western women might not stand a chance against Japanese women. As most of you know there aren’t many “fat people” in Japan and what is available in shops is for the “average Japanese” with small feet, short legs and petite fingers plus a super slim body shape.
But since I moved to Japan I’ve NEVER bought any shoes (apart from slippers). I’m not entirely sure, but I think it’s quite difficult to find clothes if you’re overweight.
Japanese aristocratic society developed to its fullest extent during the long Heian period (794-1191).
Aristocratic culture of the Heian period is particularly fascinating because many of its values, practices and customs differed sharply from those of today's world--in Japan or elsewhere.
Greater Acceptance in More Secular and Affluent Countries As the United States and other countries grapple with the issue of same-sex marriage, a new Pew Research Center survey finds huge variance by region on the broader question of whether homosexuality should be accepted or rejected by society.
The survey of publics in 39 countries finds broad acceptance of homosexuality in North America, the European Union, and much of Latin America, but equally widespread rejection in predominantly Muslim nations and in Africa, as well as in parts of Asia and in Russia.
These are also among the richest countries in the world.
In contrast, in poorer countries with high levels of religiosity, few believe homosexuality should be accepted by society.
Sport shoes are available in my size (men shoes), but they’re too wide. No wonder I can’t compete with all the cute Japanese girls, when I’m the only one who can’t buy CUTE things!!!! For men most shoes go up to 28, sometimes 30, so if you have larger feet, you’ll run into similar problems as me. As I’m slim, I don’t have any issues squeezing myself into Japanese clothes, but most of the time they’re too short!
These are among the key findings of a new survey by the Pew Research Center conducted in 39 countries among 37,653 respondents from March 2 to May 1, 2013.
The survey also finds that acceptance of homosexuality is particularly widespread in countries where religion is less central in people’s lives.
Opinion about the acceptability of homosexuality is divided in Israel, Poland and Bolivia.
Attitudes about homosexuality have been fairly stable in recent years, except in South Korea, the United States and Canada, where the percentage saying homosexuality should be accepted by society has grown by at least ten percentage points since 2007. from Wikipedia (click to enlarge): Most women shoes are available up to 24/25, so if you have smaller feet, you can buy all those cute shoes. People seriously gave me the advice to look in a “drag queen shop” for lady shoes in my size. That’s taller than the average Japanese woman (158 cm / 5 ft 2 in), though.
