Chinese tourists are bent on maintaining their reputation as badly behaved. They were caught climbing Japan’s iconic cherry trees, grabbing branches, breaking blossoms and raining them down to get some pictures.
The Japanese media has expressed its irritation towards this misbehavior calling it “Chinese-style flower viewing and also recommended that a special zone be set up for the Chinese tourists.
This act of the Chinese tourists is strongly being criticized in social media and some have said that they feel ashamed and disgusted by the behavior of the tourist group also terming them as “uncivilized bastards.”
Only last month, Chinese tourists managed to stir up some controversy back at home by being a bit overzealous while taking pictures with Nanjing’s famous cherry trees.
Chinese tourists declared that the iconic tree grew first in China and then in Japan, this statement had already sparked tension in the Chinese Japanese relationship. Chinese tourist activity was featured in February when a catfight at the Tokyo airport over a trolley collision had turned quite violent.
