    5) bow when you talk on the phone no
    6) buy omiyage for your colleagues, friends or family when you go somewhere (even for a few days) no

    8) avoid teling people directly what you think yes
    9) avoid putting soap or foam in your bath no, but i haven't taken a "bath" in about 6 years though. I take showers every day.
    10) refrain from eating in the street or while standing/walking. no. im a "eat on the go" person. I eat a bag of chips and and drink a soda while riding my bike sometimes

    Cultural adaptation

    Can you :

    1) Sleep on a futon yes
    2) bear Japanese TV programmes yes
    3) ride a bicycle with an umbrella in one hand yes
    4) sit in "seiza" yes

    10) like "onsen" (hot spring) yes

    So I scored a 6-6-9 = 21. Not bad.

    About the taking off the shoes thing. Im an ABSOLUTE NUT about this. I currently live in a dorm room by myself and I even take off my shoes before entering my room. When I go over to my cousin's house (where they don't take off their shoes in their house), I always take off my shoes, even when they tell me to leave them on, and sometimes we even get in dumb arguments about it. Its been standard practice in my household since i was born to take off my shoes. I can't walk in someone's house with my shoes on. Period. It just feels REALLY weird to do it

    I probably wouldn't score very high, but my Korean friend's mother is very oriental. She does most of the things under etiquette, sleeps on a futon, has Korean Soap Operas on tape(many!), sits at a small table when eating and covers her mouth when she laughs. XP

    I scored 6-7-8, i havn't tried 4 of the foods listed(although i wouldn't eat whale anyways for reasons of morality) and i don't bow when i talk on the phone- i dont know what omiyage is and i always tell people what i think.
    I havn't seen kabuki yet although i'd like to one day but i think it would be pretty impossible for me to ride a bike and hold an umbrella at the same time .
