Hair is something completely unremarkable in Japanese schools for the sole purpose of children not being too distracted by their hair in class. Boys have to have simple cut with no styling and no layering.

Girls have it a bit easier though as they can leave their hair a bit long and can even tie it up if they want.
But again, there is no way even girls can style their hair or layer it in any way.

Do you have a crush on someone in school? Well, if you were in Japan, you would only have a crush on that person and never be able to act out on your feelings because relationships are strictly banned in Japanese schools. Students are believed to be too young to be thinking about relationships according to Japanese teachers, and this is the time where children and teenager should forget all distractions and focus on their work.

If a teacher is absent or sick, then the class that teacher was supposed to take is not assigned to a different teacher, but rather the students are left alone in class to study on their own. This would be downright impossible in European or American schools because the students would begin talking to each other or playing. In Japan, this is not a problem due to the great discipline that the students have as is taught in Japanese schools.

In the morning, it is necessary for every student to greet the teacher in their class and it is a tradition in some schools to start the day off with some meditation, so the students have some positive energy in them before they start their long day.

It is strictly against school rules to come to school late unless there is some unique situation. Despite this seeming to be something similar to schools in other countries, it is worth noting that Japanese students are extremely punctual and will usually stay late after school for extracurricular activities or extra classes.

You don’t buy your food in the cafeteria in Japan, and you’re not allowed to bring any from home. The food is provided by the school, and it can be either a bowl of rice, fish, or soup. There is also no option whether the students want to have the food or not as they are punished if they don’t finish every bit of their food.
