At sa wakas, narito ang isang paalaala kung paano gawing mas kasiya-siya ang buhay dito. Makipagkilala sa iyong mga kapitbahay. Magandang simula ang pagbati ng “ohayo gozaimasu” at “konnichiwa” kung makasalubong mo sila. Maaring mahirap sa simula, ngunit matapos mong gawin ito ng makailang beses, makikipag-usap na rin sila sa iyo.

It takes courage the first time, but after you've exchanged greetings a few times, people will begin to talk to you.
