Uniforms and female teachers will check this uniform at school in some schools teachers regularly pull the bra straps of female students over the collar to check the color additionally there are reports from Junior High School students in Nagasaki that a female teacher will enter the room while female students are

Changing clothes to check their underwear explaining this regulation schools state that they want to create uniformity among female students and prevent them from revealing the color of their inner garments beneath the white uniform shirt however this policy remains controversial as some students believe that the color of underwear should be a

Matter of personal privacy number 22 no bringing food from home to school Elementary and Junior High School students in Japan are not allowed to bring any food from home to school they will have their meals at school the menu at Japanese schools is quite diverse including soup fish ET set but it varies

Between schools additionally students May face penalties if they do not finish their meal in comparison to Western countries where students often go to cafes to buy lunch or bring food from home Japan differs all schools must provide food for students to ensure that no child goes hungry during the school day even

Those facing financial difficulties while this may seem strange to some is a positive measure implemented in Japanese schools to guarantee that no child goes without a meal ensuring they have enough energy to focus on their studies without skipping any meals however for high school students this rule no longer applies allowing the

Bento culture to thrive students can bring colorful creatively decorated and nutritious homemade lunch boxes to school number 21 prohibition on hair dying or having curly hair when coming to school Japanese schools do not allow students to dye their hair black hair is considered the standard and if a student’s natural hair color differs

From black they must dye it black or provide a picture proving that their hair is naturally a different color in some cases students have been forced by the school to dye their hair back to black black causing controversy in Japanese public opinion simply because a female student’s hair had a slightly

Brown tint it’s not just about color female students with naturally curly hair or required to straighten their hair to conform to the pure Customs at school moreover Japanese students may be denied entry to school if their hair is not neatly groomed some cases involve Japanese students of African descent being

Accused of straightening their hair even though it is their natural hair texture number 20 prohibition on having hair based on personal preference if the prohibition on dying hair or having curly hair seems excessive believe me the regulations regarding hair in Japanese schools can be even more extreme in Japanese schools male

Students must have short hair not allowing it to grow long or a facial hair female students can have long hair but the bangs cannot be longer than the eyebrows and tying the hair in an overly flashy way is prohibited some schools prohibit female students from tying their hair into a ponytail or

Wearing a hair bun fearing that it may reveal the neck and potentially stimulate male students this regulation is considered one of the strange prohibitions in Japan it makes you wonder there are short hairstyles that can also reveal the neck so isn’t this rule illogical number 19 prohibition on

Wearing Jewelry accessories or makeup up when coming to school students are prohibited from wearing any jewelry such as Rings bracelets necklaces or accessories like watches or headbands to school and even earrings are considered taboo because they are deemed too flashy authorities argue that if students dress immodestly or wear eye-catching

Accessories they may encounter trouble or pose harm to themselves female students are also not allowed to wear makeup paint their nails or shave their legs the reason behind this is that schools believe students come to school to study so wearing makeup or additional accessories is unnecessary furthermore

These actions are seen as attracting the opposite gender and may lead to undesirable behaviors so they should be prohibited however you may be surprised to know that while Japanese students are forbidden from wearing makeup office workers are required to wear makeup when going to work as a sign of respect

Towards others it’s an odd law isn’t it number 18 no romantic relationships within the school premises while School romance depicted in Japanese movies captivates and impresses everyone the reality is that students are not allowed to date within the school despite the common saying that high school love is the most

Beautiful Japanese schools strictly prohibit this Japanese schools do not permit any form of romantic relationships to be expressed within the school premises many students are even questioned about whether they appear friendly with the opposite sex unfortunately for students who develop feelings for their peers at school all romantic relationships are

Strictly forbidden and students cannot openly Express their feelings to their Crush at school teachers also strongly support this rule believing that students are still too young to think about romantic relationships if a student is found to be in a romantic relationship they may receive a warning and their parents will be informed

Promptly for further action number 17 school uniforms are mandatory school uniforms in Japan have been a part of the education system for many decades and wearing a school uniform is as natural for Japanese students as eating rice and drinking water daily school uniforms play an important role in the identity of Japanese students

Most schools in Japan have a uniform that is the same for all students with female students wearing striped skirts and male students wearing black suits in addition uniforms also have specific regulations regarding the length of the female student skirts if a student intentionally shortens the skirt

For example by folding it at the waist they will be punished if discovered the reason for this regulation is that they believe wearing uniforms helps eliminate social barriers within the School number 16 csy is required at school in the morning when students arrive at school they must seriously perform the ritual of bowing to greet teachers and older adults this is a tradition of particular importance in the Japanese school environment whether in the morning or after class students must maintain a

Serious posture stand up bowo and politely greet their teachers this is because in Japanese culture they highly value greetings students must greet each other as well as their teachers some schools even begin a new day with a meditation session for students and teachers starting the day with positive and fulfilling energy

Hoping it will last throughout the school Day number 15 absolutely no being late for school being punctual is taken extremely seriously from elementary school onwards students must be present in class by 8:30 a.m. and if they are consistently late they will be assigned early morning cleaning duties at school for a week additionally if there is a specific

Time they not only arrive on time but also stay after school for extracurricular activities in various clubs Japanese people highly value adherence to schedules and see it as a cultural way of life that demonstrates respect for the collective and personal discipline a trait cultivated from a young age therefore Japanese people take pride

In being punctual and dislike it when others break appointments or arrive late number 14 students will self-study when teachers are absent no subst subtitute teachers an interesting aspect in Japan is that when a teacher is absent for any reason there will be no substitute teacher this is because students are

Accustomed to a specific teaching style from their own teachers and no one else can replace them instead students have to self-study according to the set guidelines and maintain proper behavior Japan’s self-study hours are also very strict with no noise or disorder the self-discipline and conscientious studying Behavior without supervision

Classroom they highly value those who take short naps because they believe these individuals have studied hard worked diligently to the point of exhaustion so they involuntarily fall asleep the schedule of a Japanese student includes participating in morning activities attending exam prep centers doing homework therefore students have little time to
