Taiwan: Don't be a lousy traveler

Blogger Mochadango(抹茶糰子) who lives in Kyoto, Japan, condemns the ignorance and nearly-criminal acts(zht) of a Taiwanese traveler who recently took photos and videos of other travelers while taking a hot spring bath during his tour in Japan, though he claimed to have permission. The traveler(screen name:we5376301) uploaded the photos and videos to his blog and to Youtube, and then share them to Taiwan's most popular Bulletin Board System(PTT Sex). Mochadango immediately called to confirm with the hotel after seeing this post and refuted the traveler's claim. “I know that not every Taiwanese wants to be responsible for representing Taiwan, but as long as you are abroad, you are representing Taiwan” Mochadango warns, “You did one bad thing abroad, and sooner or later it will become ‘Ah, this is what Taiwanese do‘ “.
