Despite the Thais complaining about the behavior about the Chinese lately it seems like Japan is doing the same with Thai Tourists at the moment.
Thai Embassy in Tokyo issued a warning on Facebook for Thai visitors in Japan about maintaining appropriate manners during the cherry blossom season in Japan.
“The embassy would like to advice about common manners for viewing Sakura to Thai visitors to build a good reputation for Thai tourists in Japanese eyes,” the statement read.
Under the thread of ‘Useful Tips for Happy Holiday’ tell tourists what not to do – the following little sarcastic rules were posted.
The rules forbid actions which sound familiar:
- Do not pick or touch the Sakura.
- Do not reserve seats for your companions, and only sit in the allowed area.
- Please sit away from the Sakura to make sure you don’t hurt the trees.
- Do not drink alcohol until you become intoxicated or pass out.
- Remain silent. Do not disturb the locals.
- Pick up your own trash. Separate types of trash and dump it in the trash bins
