American here. One summer my family and I were driving through Kentucky and we stopped to buy some souvenirs from the Amish. When we were leaving I started to take pictures of them when they politely asked me NOT to take pictures because it was against their rules/culture. We said okay and left. One of my number one pet peeves is Americans ALWAYS thinking they can dictate to other cultures what they want to be accepted. If you do NOT like the Japanese rules of etiquette, kick rocks and take YOUR s*itty attitudes elsewhere. The Japanese will NOT miss YOU OR your tourism dollars.
