Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 4 (73)

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 (73)「Bad Service: the Japanese Response」

Bad Service: the Japanese Response

Åsa’s comment

In Sweden, it’s often the worker who gets mad at the customer! Japan’s rubbing off on me, so I always end up apologizing, ha ha! Us foreigners mess up all the time in Japan, so we’re used to needing to apologize.
