My friend Eric Blaisdell painted these drawings when he was teaching English in Japan to show important it is to learn cultural norms when in a foreign country. In the case of the clueless Australian visitor to a Japanese home, the Japanese hosts are shocked that the Westerner did not take off his shoes when entering. It’s not just language that matters, cultural cues are paramount.
