When I am living in the United States,
I am sometimes surprised by the strange customs of Americans.
This time I’m going to talk about American’s eye contact.
As you know, now I’m here in Honolulu.
Once I go outside, there are many Americans around.
Of course, it is a natural thing.
Every time I meet people, I will greet them.
Every time they meet me, they will welcome me gently.
Greetings are very important.
However, American Greetings are somewhat
different from Japanese greetings.
Where is the difference?
It’s how they use their eyes.
At the time of greeting, their eye contact is so intense.
When we meet each other,
First, it is most important for them to see the other person.
And second, looking at each other for a while, finally, they say “good morning.”
Then surprisingly, they look at each other during the whole greeting and just stare.
They stare at each other.
You may think that time is a pretty short period,
but since I am a Japanese, it feels so long.
Because our Japanese greetings are like this.
When we feel somebody’s presents,
we do not need to see that person.
We should just say “good morning “towards that person’s presents.
It is not necessary to look at each other.
Don’t you think the Japanese greetings are comfortable?
We don’t need to use our eyes at all.
In this way,
there is a big difference in how to greet in America and Japan
So since I lived in America,
I feel a sense of discomfort in greetings and conversation.
Then I keep looking confused while they keep watching me.
my eyes have become red eyes.
