when it comes to this “kneeling”, it comes from the customs and traditions of Japan. Japanese women have always been beautiful in traditional kimonos, and the traditional tea flower arrangement and other lady activities also need to kneel on the ground, put their hips on their feet, and lower their heads. No matter in the Ping’an Dynasty, or in the Warring States period, Japanese women are weak for beauty. In addition, the complex kimono requirements for aristocratic women, so they should kneel when sitting and saluting. “Kneeling” has become a manifestation of obedience and a traditional symbol.

why do Japanese women like to kneel?

among women from all over the world, Japanese women have always been famous for their beauty and tenderness. In Japan, women who are good at make-up and dress are often three times higher than women who only have natural beauty; The tenderness of Japanese women from the inside and the feminine charm from self-cultivation will make everyone close to her feel like a spring breeze. It can be said that Japanese women are unique because of their meticulous exterior and deep interior.

as soon as Japanese women are mentioned, people’s impression immediately shows the gentle image of wearing kimonos, wearing a bun and taking small steps. When the husband comes back from the door, they will meet at the door and take over the husband’s briefcase. Let’s say: you’re back. It’s hard today. It is estimated that all men will be exhausted at this time of the day, and then sit on the tatami and drink the tea poured by the opposite wife kneeling for themselves. Presumably, happiness is just like this. Otherwise, how can there be such a sentence as “eat Chinese food when eating vegetables and marry Japanese when marrying a wife”? Many Japanese women are impressed by their gentle kneeling posture and their gentle attitude.

now let’s talk about why Japanese women kneel. Do they really like kneeling so much?

when it comes to “kneeling”, it comes from the customs and traditions of Japan. Japanese women have always been beautiful in traditional kimonos, and the traditional tea flower arrangement and other lady activities also need to kneel on the ground, put their hips on their feet, and lower their heads. No matter in the Ping’an Dynasty, or in the Warring States period, Japanese women are weak for beauty. In addition, the complex kimono requirements for aristocratic women, so they should kneel when sitting and saluting. “Kneeling” has become a manifestation of obedience and a traditional symbol.

“kneeling” on tatami is “sitting” for Japanese, which is called “seat” or “main seat”. “Seat” was introduced into Japan from China in the flying bird era (about the 7th century), but it was not until the Edo era that there was a saying of “seat”.

“front seat” is to put their hips on the soles of their feet. It looks very uncomfortable, but for the Japanese, it is not suffering, but a kind of enjoyment, because they have been used to it since childhood. At present, the Japanese still want to be “seated” in tea ceremony, kendo, funeral, Dharma and formal conversation.

it is said that when a Chinese Yue Opera Troupe staged the famous Japanese tragedy “Chunqin copy”, the actors portrayed the task in place in order to make the performance lifelike and vivid, and the actors suffered a lot from practicing “seat”. However, because we didn’t get rid of the concept of “kneeling”, the posture is still not authentic no matter how we practice it.

the Japanese also call “kneeling” as “earth under the seat”, which is similar to kowtow, expressing extreme respect or deep apology. Ask people to forgive their mistakes, or ask people to do things, they will also kneel down and kowtow and say, “I am so (please)!”

some people believe that kneeling is not conducive to leg blood circulation, which will lead to poor leg lines of Japanese women. The Japanese will also laugh at themselves that most Japanese women are “big root legs”. Big root is actually what we call radish legs. The bad leg shape is white radish, which is thick and short; The slender and delicate leg shape is known as “carrot leg”. Japanese women walk and lie down, do not pay attention to stretching their limbs, but take micro curling as beauty. Speaking in Japanese is to turn yourself down.

however, no matter how fat a Japanese woman is, once she wears a kimono, her figure will be “smaller”. Kimonos focus on Japanese aesthetics, such as wearing Japanese bathrobes and wooden clogs. They look good only when they walk with “internal eight characters” and take small steps. Yu Dafu, who has studied in Japan, most appreciates this “feminine beauty”.

in addition to kneeling, there is no doubt about their tenderness.

the tenderness of Japanese women is divided into three kinds.

the first is the tenderness of language. In terms of language, Japanese women always speak very gently and politely, and their voice and tone sound very gentle.

the second is the tenderness of action. Once sitting in a chair, many more traditional Japanese women must merge their feet, put their hands naturally on their knees, tilt their body slightly, and bend slightly when talking. In the kneeling posture, the body should also lean forward slightly, the feet facing back are still combined, and the hands also need to be placed naturally on the knees.

the third is inner tenderness. The tenderness of many Japanese women is unified and harmonious inside and outside. They will not directly express their opinions, speak strategically, respect others, and consider problems from the standpoint of each other. There is a saying: Chinese women are gentle to make men love themselves more, while Japanese women are gentle only to make men happy. In fact, Japanese women are much smarter than Chinese women at this point, because hard to get is the truth.

in Japan, if a woman is not beautiful, but her image is sweet and her character is gentle, she will still be loved by many Japanese men. Most Japanese men like smart girls, but at the same time they want women to hide their abilities and let them go ahead; Japanese men also require women to be very elegant. They believe that women’s warmth should be distributed slowly to have an intriguing feminine charm.

are popular among many Japanese womenYou often feel a kind of elegance from inside to outside. Even if she is not beautiful, you can feel their temperament.

Japanese women often give people quiet and tranquility, which gives people peace of mind. This temperament is not modified by “makeup”, but cultivated from the heart. It can be seen that modern Japanese women attach great importance to the construction of deep self, and all Japanese women attach great importance to the study of “Tao”. They attach importance to “Tao” for beauty and “Tao” for heart.
