In a few weeks’ time, the French athletes and para-athletes will be getting ready to fly to Tokyo. To help the French Team discover the subtleties and intricacies of cultural practices in the land of the rising sun, Groupe BPCE called on Louis-San, a famous young Franco-Japanese YouTuber, to produce a web series of seven light-hearted episodes.

In this fourth episode, Louis-San focuses on the cultural differences between France and Japan. And there are plenty of them – ranging from cleanliness to toilets and a sense of community, etc. – but, fortunately, the advice given by Louis-San will enable our French athletes to arrive on Japanese soil without an intercultural worry in the world!
