Bath Time ! (1)

2014/02/27

In the image of Americans and other foreigners, the Japanese might be the cleanest people on earth.

It's a well-known fact that the bathing habit, both in public and in private is a very important part of Japanese life.

The bath is certainly a way to get clean, but I believe it's also used as a way to relax after a long day.

For Americans however, bathing is mostly just a daily necessity, and doesn't have such a strong connection to relaxation.
This is why people in the US usually take a quick (usually about 15 minutes) shower in the morning before going to work or school.

Even though I myself did this most of my life when I was in America, I admit it doesn't make much sense to get clean before working, not after.                        (G.K)
