'Not only Japanese people remove their shoes when they walk into a home: Finnish people do so too.
To everyone who isn’t used to remove their shoes at the entrances of the houses – like me – this is quite shocking.
I went to Finland at the end of a summer, and it was then when I learned about this tradition. I must admit that in summer it doesn’t seem to make that much of a difference, but in winter you truly understand why Finns do what they do.
And not doing it is truly a faux-pas in Finland.'
