Japan vs China - A cultural mindset difference: Hospitality Industry (with sound!)

Hi friends!

I had a very valuable and insightful conversation with a friend from Mainland China who works in the luxury hospitality services industry recently - and they continue to give me great insight and ideas for comparisons between business cultures in Japan vs China.

Before COVID, he was coming to Japan a lot for work! Now that things are settling down, although he did say that it took him about 2 hours to get through Narita (not Haneda) airport to get into the city -- things are looking BETTER! Fhew.

By the way, I like to keep these blog posts kind of on the more causal side - rather than being super serious. Have you noticed that? :)

For this nugget of my sharing, I used a different medium / platform, as I'm exploring what comes out most genuinely from my point of view - If you enjoy an Americanized influence of the English language to listen to (I got some feedback recently saying, "wow you're so American" so I am sharing this accordingly! ) -- you may like this soundbite...!
