50 Illustrations Showing The Cultural Differences Between Japan And Other Countries

Eva is a comic artist who studied in Tokyo from 2010 to 2014. During her stay in the country, the artist noticed many cultural differences between her home country and Japan. To deal with this sudden cultural shock, Eva started creating funny comics about it.

The artist hopes her comics will not only help foreigners understand the Japanese culture better but inform people about the changes they need to make in their behavior when visiting Japan. Between 2012 and 2015, the artist posted over 300 comics to her Facebook page – check out some of the best ones in the gallery below!
