Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 4 (72)

Convenience store onigiri are way too handy! Why is it that Japanese girls can call just about anything “cute?” The guys at host bars are so hot, they’re like real-life anime characters! These are only some of the mysteries Swedish manga artist Åsa Ekström discovers in this journal comic about her journey from Scandinavia to Japan, which is jam-packed with surprises and laughs! >>> Chapter 4: Back Home in Sweden (72)「The Service is Bad Here」

The Service is Bad Here

Åsa’s comment

Customer service is amazing in Japan, so when I go back to Sweden, the service feels especially bad. The other day, I went to a Japanese bank, and there were just two people working there…but they managed to thank and bow to every single customer who walked through their doors. That’s pretty amazing!
