View topic - Tsu Ka
Going abroad for the first time on their own, without any Japanese backup, there fore takes a great deal of courage for teh average Japanese - - and their concern goes much deeper than not being albe to read signs or speak thelocal language. The tsu-ka , or "cultural cues," by which they have been guided in every aspect of their lives are no longer there. Tsu by itself means "being highly responsive to cues of hints," while ka refers to Japanese culture.
