In Japan, many things are reversed

Japan seems to be the reverse of the rest of the world!

In language , the verb is at the end of the sentence.
Prepositions are replaced by postpositions – they come after the noun
“I came to Japan” is stated “I Japan to came”

Writing is vertical, down a column, right column to left, although nowadays it is more often horizontal, left to right, as English.

Books have the binding on the right. You read pages right to left.

Streets do not (well, a few do) have names. They are the space between blocks. Blocks have names, well numbers actually.

Cars drive on the left side of the road – as in Britain.

 

even in class – learning to pronounce a long word:
Wa
Nichiwa
Konnichiwa.
