Farting is not a spectator sport, and the Japanese are quite clear about it.
Japan's Hokkaido Tourism Organization has issued an advisory for foreign tourists, asking them to withhold their fire completely in public or at least be super discreet about it.
The advisory comes in the form of an illustrated booklet titled The Traveler's Etiquette Guide To Hokkaido. The guide, among other things, explicitly asks visitors to avoid "belching or flatulence in public."
According to a report by the Asian Correspondent, the guide is aimed squarely at the unruly Chinese tourists thronging the island of Hokkaido. In fact, the idea for publishing a booklet like this took root after worried Japanese hotel owners expressed concerns about hosting Chinese visitors in their establishments.
Chinese tourists have over the years acquired a reputation for being noisy, problematic guests in other countries. From fighting for prawns in Thailand to damaging cherry blossom trees in Japan for a selfie, the Chinese have done it all. Even the Chinese government seems to be aware of their citizens' exploits abroad and is trying to bring some order to the chaos.
