Take Out


Take Out What Happened and Why?


Location: Osaka, Japan

Student: Male, 20  


My friend and I went to a McDonald's located by the Nishinomiya Train Station. We were in a hurry because we were to meet other international students in Osaka. We got the food to go and got on the next train headed for Umeda, the central stop in Osaka. We began eating and noticed that everyone was staring at us. I turned to my friend and asked, "Why are all the Japanese staring at us?" He replied, "Don't be silly, we are Gaijin (foreigners) and that is why they are staring at us!"

Why were the Japanese staring at us?
