The Japanese have the safest in-person greeting mode in the world in their custom of bowing. It is perfect for preventing the physical contact spread of the Covid-19 virus since bowing requires a certain amount of physical distance.
However, many of the idiotic copycats in Japanese society have decided to mimic foreigners by using fist and elbow matching, which no matter how you look at it, are far more likely to spread the disease than bowing. Why adopt something worse when you already have something better?
It’s time for the Japanese to realize that many of the customs that they already possess are far superior for disease prevention than those of other countries. Bathing daily, eating quietly, maintaining Japanese speaking distances and many other innate customs the Japanese follow go a long way in stopping the spread of infectious pathogens.
The Japanese should look at the customs they already have and re-evaluate them before blindly replacing them with inferior foreign substitutes. In most cases, they’ll find that what they already have is much better than what they want to copy from abroad.
