|NZ's potatoes are nearly 3 times larger than Japanese ones. And they
are unbelievably cheap.
And in Japan, I've never seen huge pumpkins which I saw in NZ are larger than the my head.
Japanese veggies looks like miniatures and are troublesome to peel.
|Contrary to the veggies, NZ's apples are much smaller than the Japanese
While a Japanese apple is too large to eat just by yourself and you need to cut it into some pieces and share with others, a NZ's one is the right size for biting.
NZ's apples taste more sour, and much cheaper.
|Japanese population is over 120 million while NZ's is less than 4 million.
There is no doubt the number of sheep is much larger than KIWI.
While in NZ, you'll see few house out of towns and sometimes you won't come across others for hours even on highway 1, you can't avoid others everywhere in Japan.
|In NZ, nobody cares other's outfit. This may be because it's the agricultural
and farming country. No one cares if clothes are secondhand or a little
bit worn out.
Those who have got used to live in NZ will suddenly realize that they are out of fashion in Japan.
|-Japanese residents in NZ-|
|Japanese people are skinny in Kiwi's standard. Did you look skinny in NZ? Nobody knows you still look skinny in Japan.
|Oh my! everybody takes over me...
Definitely, those who are back from NZ are slow walkers in Japan.
|What the hell makes you so busy?|
|Almost everything is expensive such as veggies, meats, dairy products and eating out... Good-bye ice-cream...
But paper products such as toilet tissues are cheaper in Japan.
|I miss the clear blue sky in NZ...|
|Japanese people watch weather report very seriously. Weather forecast is
important because we dry our Futon(Japanese style bedding) under the sun,
have to walk to the nearest station to commute, and have to go to supermarket
Then, people really get angry if it's rain despite of the forecast of 100% sunny day. Some people even call to Meteorological Agency or TV stations to complain.
Therefore, you'll see weather forecasters apologizing on TV!
