Not at all surprised: French people are so rude! Especially Parisians. I would not recommend any people loving, polite and respectful manners to visit France. That’s why I choose to live in Japan, which is by far the most polite and respectful culture. Compared to them French people look like cavemen.
A dozen or so Japanese tourists a year have to be repatriated from the French capital, after falling prey to what’s become known as « Paris syndrome ».
That is what some polite Japanese tourists suffer when they discover that Parisians can be rude or the city does not meet their expectations.
The experience can apparently be too stressful for some and they suffer a psychiatric breakdown.
Around a million Japanese travel to France every year.
