Scilence is golden.
Who do you think “most unpopular/unwelcome people” in Japan? Yes, “Chatterbox.” So, this proverb is so very true. Scilence is really appreciated in Japan. In the library, you are supposed to keep quiet. No talk! Nada….
At schools or offices, the quieter, the better. Japanese children are so deciplined that they don’t do anything – just keep your mouth shut – while they are doing a particular thing. “No Multi-Task People Needed” – that’s who the Japanese are!
