Buck and smile during the greeting and thank you. Gifts are a big thing.
Courtesy is one of the keywords, which is often associated with the japanese culture, which the Danish WORLD cup team right now navigate in.
It is with the gifts the team have experienced several times. When they arrived in Kumamoto, they were given gifts by the locals as a gesture.
the Question is, then, whether the national team itself has completely mastered all the unwritten rules? It has B. T. asked a variety of players about.
"There are some cultural differences, you just need to think about. For example, one must take things with two hands, so you can go and be afraid to offend someone some times."
"But it is fun to experience a different culture than the Danish."
"Our deal Erling was sweet to inform us about some of the most important things, so we do not appear as some arrogant danes. Otherwise, you learn it along the way," laughs she.
"Otherwise, we try just to behave as we usually do - nicely and quietly. We just got some hints before. Also that one should not move and push, where I thought: 'It is not nice to do at home', but it was looked very down on."
"then we had to get into the train at the airport and switch, møvede the (japanese ed.) very much in the train. I was a little surprised that we had got the message, for that was all the man just entering."
"We really try also to take with two hands, when we get something. All the small things. We're trying to be really polite."
"the Japanese are cute and extremely polite and extremely hospitable. Every time we come somewhere, we will be the filled with gifts. The bows and bobs and is just cute."
"as late as yesterday we got two big bouquets of flowers, some sweets, some local delicacies, small cakes, and hair elastics. Everything strange. They are enormously cute."
"You can feel, there is little kulturforskel, we will just have to work a little with. Both in Okinawa and here are the impressions have been good."
"We've got little to know from home, but I think perhaps, I have entered the wrong one or two times. I might have just forgotten to bucks, and when they give something, you need to take with two hands. That I think sometimes, I just have taken it, as you usually want to do it," says Trine Østergaard with a smile and demonstrates with one hand.
"It is something they are very. It is just to be polite, when they are, smile and remember to say thank you."Updated Date: 29 November 2019, 22:00
