Will I experience culture shock in Japan?

I am visiting there soon.

Most likely, yes. But it depends on what area you are visiting. The big cities will probably be most like what you are used to, but will still be quite different. For example, they don't sit in chairs and the don't have "Western" bathrooms. If you are man, this won't be bad. If you are a female, though, get ready!

No you should not be,the culture there is strange on some way but its very friendly beatufiul to see..maybe you will expirience some confusing thoughts about the habits of the people but it is not something that will hurt you.The culture there is very ancient and worthy to see it.

Japan is weird, once you get past that everything falls into place. Expect smaller portions of food and smaller hotels. Also expect crowds and traffic. The people don't show as much emotion and you need to learn to read between the lines of what they are actually saying.

That depends greatly on where you are traveling FROM. Have you ever left your country before? Have you ever visited a large city with lots of people before?

Expect to be thoroughly taken aback by the complete lack of English language anywhere outside of Tokyo, where English is sparse to begin with.
