So I was hoping someone can enlighten me on a few questions below about Japanese high School students and culture: 1. I read online that in Japan guys don't pay for dates, and it's normal to have the girl pay too. And this is an ok thing. Is this true? 2. Is it a BIG DEAL if someone is late for a date in Japan? I've read that you're supposed to apologize to your entire team if you're late for work. But I've also read that punctuality standards are a little more relaxed these days. Is being late still considered a big offense? especially in dating? 3. Do Japanese high school students hug or kiss casually for non-romantic reasons? Not as in hooking up, as in if someone gives you a gift is it OK to hug them to show your appreciation in a friendly way? Or would this be viewed as weird behavior? 4. Do Japanese high school students even have time for dates? Or are they so busy studying that there's no time for that? Reading about their school system online it would seem that way. But then again anime says otherwise, so I'm not sure what the real situation is. 5. So what's the deal with mixed hot springs? I've read that it's no big deal for men and women to soak naked together in mixed hot springs, but then in anime the females throw stuff at males when they do their "peep at the girl's onsen" thing. So I'm confused, which is it? Or is mixed springs a thing for older adults only? Thanks so much!
