The relation between whether to take off shoes into house or not(#2)

The drama of TV Asahi in Japan “Aibou Season 19” started on October 14.
Regarding this year, there was concern that the shooting would be delayed
from preventing the spread of the Covid-19.
However, the broadcast was as usual.

It’s been more than half a year since the news of the “virus” came out,
but people feel like geting used to this situation more and more.

At first, most people living in Japan had been wandering.

In Hong Kong it was making quicker decisions earlier this year than in Japan.
It may be because of the experience of “SARS(SARS-CoV)” in 2003.
The Chief Executive of HK Carrie Lam held an early press conference.
I found a other point, not about that speed.
During the press conference, she kept putting the scarf on all the time.

In Japan, it can see job hunters and sales people taking off their scarfs and coats
before entering the entrance of the destination.
The same applies to hats. The pitcher who threw the dead ball will take off his hat
and expresses his apology in all baseball category of Japan.
However, in the US of MLB,
if the pitcher takes off his hat, he is suspected of being a “intentional hit by pitch”.
There’s a difference in the boundaries of gratitude for these attachments and detachments.
Perhaps, it may be involved in the Japanese habit of “taking off shoes into house“.
So it may become up to a customary for no rudeness,
as if it’s close to “stepping on with shoes into a house”.
That reminded me of the “Aibou” series.
Ukyo Sugishita, played by Yutaka Mizutani, does not take off his scarf and coat
even if he goes ones home to listen.
And it remains the same in the rooms of senior officials, too.
Many viewers have wondered why Ukyo, who was familiar with the dress code
because he’d returned from London, didn’t do that.
By the way, Wataru Kaburagi is Ukyo’s current partner, played by Takashi Sorimachi,
seems to have a similar stance.
Because he’s also intelligent as a former career bureaucracy like Ukyo.

In the first place, “appearance” is a kind of code (tacit intention).
In the case of “Aibou”, it’s the most convincing.

Do not take off your scarf and coat = go out immediately (do not stay long)

And the same, the fact that Carrie Lam keeps putting the scarf on means

Do not spend a lot of time here (that is, prioritize tasks over interviews)


News is broadcasting by several contents all over the world every day.
Perhaps the facts may be distorted by somebody’s plot or attempt.
However, the leader’s appearance itself is a world standard,
and it briefly tells us the “gratitude” of the country.
It’s a very good teaching material.

Ukyo often calls “I get interested about the details anytime, it’s my bad habit”

But the details are the most eloquent.
he doesn’t feel as bad as he says, so he doesn’t fix his habit.
From there, he’ll solve the case without overlooking it like Sherlock Holmes.

Check the teaching materials that are familiar to you
and find out the differences from the details.
Perhaps these may be the true “senses”.
