One thing that foreigners living in Japan notice is that Japanese people always seem to be smiling. The way they smile when they share their opinion, fail at something, and even when they say "no" is unique to Japan. There are many kinds of smiles that are rooted and expressed in Japanese culture. We rediscover Japan's emotive smiling culture with various smiles such as fake smiles, slight smiles, bitter smiles, embarrassed grins and laughing with ridicule from the perspective of foreigners.
