a word Juzo Itami heard
The actor and filmmaker remembered such a word and slapped his knee when he stayed in Europe. While traveling, people create the impression of a certain country from a trivial experience. From impression they got at the store or how much time they had to wait at customs, etc. The same is true for people to have visitors. Both sides lead to a "certain conclusion" from "a transient impression". He says that people fall into such biased idea in spite of themselves as long as they take traveling lightly as "temporary time."
