More and more overseas tourists are visiting Japan every year. Naturally this results in many culture shocks and humorous misunderstandings which get shared on social media.

But one problem which seems to keep popping up, is tall visitors feeling a bit put out by the tiny accommodation. The average height of Japanese people is shorter than many other countries and often dwellings and other aspects of the country will reflect that.

These photos of ‘tall people in Japan problems’ show how hilariously unsuited some parts of Japan are for the vertically endowed among us.

But if you are on the taller side, don’t be put off from travelling to Japan. The slight discomfort felt by these visitors in some places didn’t seem to sour their trip, but rather became a funny memory to look back on!
