Indonesia and Japan are both Asian countries, but their cultures are a little different.

For example, when children or young people in Indonesia meet someone older than themselves, they take that person’s hand and draw it to their forehead. This gesture shows how valued older people are.

“The Differences Between Growing Up in China and Japan”
In China, a majority of children are raised by mothers or a mother-in-law, and so children are adored and even spoiled. In Japan, children are generally raised by their parents, which means that children should do as much as they can by themselves. Kindergarten in China emphasizes skills like singing and English, while Japanese kindergartens emphasize independence and fitness. I think that there are many things to be learned from early childhood education.
