In Japanese culture, expressions of love and appreciation are uncommon. Modesty and reticence were valued more.
January 30th was a very interesting day in Japan. Tokyo men had overcome cultural norms to scream how much they love their wives. And well… this is how it went… Tokyo’s “Devoted Husbands Organization” has encouraged men to publicly declare their feelings to their wives on “Love Your Wife Day”. Instead of keeping their feelings inside of them, they had a chance to express their feelings towards their wives. This particular celebration falls on January 31st.
