Is it weird to hug your Japanese friends?
I wasn't going to see a friend for a while and I moved in to hug her goodbye and she was so surprised. We both laughed but I was wondering if I offended her.

I wanna buy shoes. Are they gonna have my size?
They have these Japan-exclusive editions coming out but I'm worried because my feet are huge

Do we have to take our shoes off everywhere?
I heard Japanese people take off their shoes when they go inside a building. I'm going to be doing a lot of walking on my travels so worried about the smell
not sure what you mean by everywhere. certain temples and restaurants, you have to. but otherwise, no. unless you're invited to someone's home.
