Literally everything is related to the group, even the interior design which is shaped like a number “48”. Many of the walls and tables are covered with AKB48 members’ signatures and the young female A staff all wear short-skirt uniforms similar to those worn by the singers on stage. The cafe features freshly baked breads, sweets and drinks inspired by or chosen by AKB48 members. Their comments and recommendations can be read next to the breads and sweets at the selfserve counter. The menu changes every week or two and includes cute and creative numbers such

The Secret Rules of Flattery Rachel Cantrell, California, USA, Student/English Teacher

W

hen I think about it, it’s a little bit strange to consider myself a gaikokujin in a country that makes up fifty percent of who I am. I’ve been using chopsticks and eating natto since I was a kid. My mother was already drilling me on my hiragana and katakana by the time I could pick up a pencil, and, embarrassing as it is, I even had a Matsumoto Jun uchiwa pinned up on my wall when I was fourteen. But I’ve got a horrendously difficult name to pronounce for the poor folks here, and I’ve inherited a larger portion of my father’s Caucasian characteristics than my mother’s Japanese looks. So I have had to become used to the occasional, “Wow, you can use chopsticks!” that inevitably deems it necessary for me to narrate a long-winded description of my family history. But despite my partially-Japanese

upbringing by my mother, there are still some things that I’ll never get used to. Most of them are pretty innocent — for instance, the adorable little multicolored envelopes for money that my students hand me at the end of their lessons, or the lavishly made-up salesgirls at the fashion malls with color contacts, fake eyelashes, ultra-high platforms, and everything that leaves me wondering if I should spend a little more time getting ready in the morning. However, when I look back on all the times I’ve come back here to visit family, and even the times I’ve spent with my mother at Japanese get-togethers back in California, there’s one thing that I’ll never be able to completely understand: the peculiar phenomenon of the Japanese compliment. My earliest memories of this

outward expression of humility — which I’m sure many a Japanese kid has experienced, too — is my mother’s automatic hand on the back of my neck when I would bow in thanks to one of her Japanese friends. I can remember staring at my toes, my thoughts less about gratitude and more along the lines of, how long is this going to go for? When is she going to let go? But I could handle the excessive bowing. What I couldn’t handle very well, however, was my mother’s immediate input when I received a compliment from one of her friends. Whether it was “Rachel-san is so cute!” or “Rachelsan is very smart!” my mother would always interject with, “No, no, no,” waving her hands in front of her face and shaking her head. Regardless of how many times this would happen, my mother would still have to reassure a crushed 12-year-old me every time that this wasn’t genuine — it was just Japanese culture. Even as a 19-year-old college student teaching English in Fukuoka for the past month or so, this still holds the same: I can handle the natto, most of the polite behavioral customs, and the odd-looking Japanese toilets with ease, but I still stumble when it

comes to accepting the Japanese compliment. But it seems like there’s always a definite four-step process when it comes to this customary flattery. First, the compliment is given. It’s usually nothing too deep, such as “Rachel-san, your Japanese is so good!” or “Oh, Rachel-san, half-Japanese girls are so cute!” Next, I’m supposed to immediately reject the compliment — bonus points if I involve self-deprecation, and even more if I can also use that self-deprecation to compliment them back. For example — “No, my Japanese is terrible!” or “No, no, I’m not at all...you are so much cuter!” We then engage in a light-hearted, completely inauthentic argument over my flimsy Japanese skills or my half-Japanese features. After stretching out the argument as far as it can go, I lose intentionally, moving on to the last step: accepting the compliment with a sheepish grin and a short bow. There aren’t too many instances where my two cultures clash — but this is one of the few moments where they do. My American half encourages me to accept that compliment with pride, while my Japanese half urges me

to prioritize humility and reject it zealously. I always try to merge with the culture around me, but it only takes a few self-deprecating rejections of the “Rachel-san is so cute!” compliment on top of my inability to squeeze my way into a pair of miniature Japanese “free size” shorts for me to wonder if “Rachel-san” maybe isn’t that great, after all. It’s not a good feeling, and I’m sure that, gaikokujin or not, I’m not the only one who feels this way. Don’t get me wrong — humility is a wonderful thing. But if it means feeling better about yourself — and who doesn’t want that? — maybe it wouldn’t hurt to take that compliment once in awhile.

ら受けるお世辞への対応には母をそのまま真 似していたの。「レイチェルさんは可愛いわ ねぇ。」 「レイチェルさんはとても賢いのね!」 と言われたら、即座に顔の前で手をふり頭を 横にふって「そんなことないんです。」が常套 句。その度に傷つく 12 歳の私に向かって母は、 これは本音でなく日本の文化なのだと嗜めた ものよ。 数ヶ月前から福岡で英語を教え、一方では 19 歳の学生である私にとって、納豆や大半 の日本の礼儀正しい慣習もお手の物になった けど、日本風お世辞を受け入れるのは至難の 業。その難解な日本のお世辞の慣しには4段 階あって、まず最初はお世辞を言われること がスタートよ。通常そんなに深い意味のもの

はなく「日本語がお上手ね!」とか「ハーフ の女の子ってなんて可愛いんでしょう!」な ど。次はすかさずそのお世辞を否定する番よ。 ここでボーナスポイントを得るには、自分を 否定するような言葉を使うことができるかに かかってるわ。例えば「いえいえ、私の日本 語はひどいものです。」とか「あなたの方が可 愛いわ!」それから、私の薄っぺらな日本語 能力や半分日本人の器量でも足りるくらいの 軽い会話に参加するの。できる限りそれを引 き延ばした後にようやく、照れ笑いしながら お辞儀をしつつお世辞を受け入れれば OK ! 私のもつ2つの文化間衝突には数えきれな いくらいの実例があるけど、それは毎日の出 来事のひとつにすぎないわ。アメリカ人と

しては、賛辞はプライドをもって受け入れる べきだと薦められ、日本人としては謙遜を優 先し、真に受けるべきでないとされている の。私は常に周囲に合わせるようにしている けど、ミニチュアサイズのこの国におけるフ リーサイズ表記が「レイチェルさん」にとっ てはフリーサイズであるはずもなく、窮屈な 思いをあえて強いられているだけに感じる わ。これは気分のよいことではないし、外国 人だろうとそうでなかろうと、私だけが感じ ていることではないと思う。間違いなく「謙 遜」は素晴らしいことよ。でも言われて気分 が良くなることであれば少しは浸っていても いいんじゃない?と思うんだけど。ね、ドー デショ?

...introducing Fukuoka’s resident foreigners

Sean Cunial

f you’re finding it hard to wrap your head around Sean’s official title, let us break it down for you. As a director, he sits on the board of Coca-Cola West (the largest bottler and distributor of Coke products in Japan), the members of which are collectively responsible for the company’s overall strategy. At the same time, as executive corporate office and general manager of commercial operations, it’s essentially down to him to ensure that you always find your nearest conbini or vending machine well-stocked with Coke products. When not overseeing the smooth operation of a roughly 5,500-strong workforce (not to mention nearly 200,000 vending machines), the straight-talking, amicable Australian likes to go for long bike rides with his friends around Itoshima. Having previously worked for Coke in The Philippines and Indonesia, as well as back home, he admits he’s not sure how much longer his tenure in Fukuoka will be. However, for the time being, life here, both professionally and personally, suits him perfectly well. Read full interview: fukuoka-now.com

What is uchimizu? Uchimizu is the practice of sprinkling secondary water onto gardens and streets during summer in Japan, to cool down the area, reduce dust and please neighbours. Traditionally, uchimizu was performed at twilight whilst wearing a yukata, using a bucket and ladle. It combines national values of courtesy and duty with utilitarian and aesthetic ends. Let’s do uchimizu and cool down the city! • Date: Aug. 8 (Wed.), from 17:30. Event starts at 18:00. • Inquiries: Hakata Machizukuri Promotion Association (092-474-7243)
