• New and traditional styles are very diferent from each
other, traditional colors aren’t as bright as modern

as now, old dresses or kimonos didn’t use as many
different materials and fabrics as they do now , new
patterns aren’t as full as before, in general traditional
fashion didn’t wanted to call the atention as much as

“Even monkeys fall from trees”
One of my favourite Japanese proverbs is “even monkeys fall from
trees”, it’s often used when you make a mistake in something your
good at, it means that even though your an expert in something, you
can still make a mistake, but that doesn’t make you less good at it, a
similar proverb in english is “the man who never makes mistakes
always takes orders from one who does”, I like it because it’s
something that always happens, and when it does you let yourself
down, but you need to know that it doesn’t make you less.
• In Japan your supposed to always take your shoes off
when your entering a private or sacred place, if you
don’t it will be considered rude, when you do you have
to put on traditional sandals to get in.
• If you go to a temple your supposed to clean yourself,
spiritually, drinking and washing your hands with
blessed water, located outside the temple.
• Usually tourist go to traditional temples to find
something that would help them go through difficult
• Sometimes people who visit Japan think that they can
get away with not following all the traditional rules, but
japanese people are really serious about them.
