Shyness and nudity in Japanese culture. Japanese are known for being shy and reserved, but with bathing most are comfortable with nudity. Why? There’s a phrase in Japanese that explains some of it. Hadaka no tsuikiai or “naked fellowship” – it basically means everyone is all the same when they are naked. It’s a part of any open relationship with friends or in business, going to bath is a place where you literally can’t hide anything!
Nudity in Japan Nudity in Japan. In contemporary Japanese society nudity occupies a similar position as in Western societies, that is to say, the naked human body is considered sexual with the often attendant emotions of embarrassment and shame. Similar, but with some differences though.
Nudity in Japan is tolerated as long as it is gender segregated. Otherwise, the titters begin. Personally, I find the fascination with poo (not the cartoon character) much more unique.
Thanks to the country's geological makeup (a chain of volcanic islands), naturally occurring hot springs (or onsens (温泉) to the Japanese) provide a relaxing space for people to get naked and bathe together. Ironically these same onsens are what gave rise to Godzilla – fun fact.
A little note though: In japan female divers were non existent as men were the only ones allowed to do that until the 19th century. At that time the taxation system made women possible divers but also made their activities tax free which had the effect of pushing a lot of poor female into the job.
One of the shows was put out a 8:30pm at night. Did cause some controversy, not because of the nudity, but because it went out before 9:00pm, and the UK is one of the more conservative countries in Europe when it comes to sex and nudity. 19 Jul 2006. #6.
