On June 3, 2018, in Osaka, two Chinese lady dining in the Gyu-Kaku BBQ restaurant were told to leave the restaurant by the waiter.  The restaurant didn’t even want their payment.


What happened?

According to Fuji TV’s interview with the restaurant waiter, the two Chinese ladies exceeded the 90-minute all-you-can-eat buffet time and had shrimp shelves thrown on the floor.  The waiter had repeatedly reminded them that the 90-minute duration is up.


The waiter told Fuji TV that he asked them to leave and said, “You can already go back, please go back.  My goodness.  Your dirty eating manners, such unpleasantness, so irresponsible.” (もう帰ってええから、もう帰って下さい。そんなんいいですわ、あんな汚い食べ方してね、もうそんなんないですわ。もう無茶苦茶ですわ。)

Even payment is refused. Exactly how dirty was their eating behavior? Japan or not Japan aside . . . I want to know; how did they eat that even the restaurant refused their payment? I always think that when travelling overseas, we should present a good image to win respect for our country, so that small countries respect us from the bottom of their heart.

Shameless people acting innocent! Disgusting. You are in the wrong yet you don’t even blush. And you fabricated with such assertion! Such bad manners!

The country shall not bear the blame [for such acts]. You brought shame [to our country] abroad and yet you said they discriminated you because you spoke Mandarin. Buffet aside, even if you are in a 3-star Michelin restaurant, no one will discriminate you if you speak Mandarin. The real reason for their discrimination is your bad manner.
Before we delve into the psyche of Chinese tourists as to why they behave the way they do, here are some more notorious acts found among them:


In 2013, a 15-year old Chinese boy defaced a stone relic in a 3,500-year-old Luxor Temple in Egypt.  He carved his name on the relic to indicate that he visited the place.



In March 2018, Chinese tourists climbed cherry blossom tree in Japan to have their pictures taken.


In 2016, a video circulated on Chinese social forum Weibo about Chinese tourists shoveling up shrimps using plates in a buffet in Thailand.


On April 4, 2018, a kangaroo in Fuzhou Zoo in Fujian, China, died after being pelted with jagged bricks by visitors, in an attempt to make the kangaroo jump.  Another kangaroo was injured and under intensive care.


In February 2018 during the Chinese New Year period, Chinese visitors to the Yunnan Wild Animal Park plucked feathers from peacocks.  Two peacocks died from shock.

In our next article, we decipher the possible reasons behind Chinese people’s psyche as to why they are not at their best of behaviors often times.
