5. Schools and companies often begin the day with group exercise.
In some ways, Japanese culture emphasizes a collective culture and unity more so than the United States does. To that end, they help build community by making sure everyone gets their heart rate up throughout the day (which may also lead to longer life, come to think of it).
6. You may be allowed—and encouraged—to take a nap at work.
The practice of napping at work in Japan is referred to as inemuri, and is thought to signify that employees are working very hard. Even more interesting is that some workers even fake inemuri to make it seem like they’re working harder than they are!
