Japan had known as a superpower in ancient times and commercially is a strong player in the present day. There is a practice called Rui-katsu in which a person or assistant makes a Japanese cry to soothing their souls. The man bringing the Japanese to cry all the time is called tear teacher. Mr. Yoshida one of tear teacher has been interviewed and said, he has been working for seven years. His job is to make Japanese fresh and relax by crying.
“I have brought people 50,000 to tears at that time. I use film, children, books, and letters to make people cry. Additionally, I use to film with different themes such as family, animals, athletes, or nature”.
Some people cry just by watching the beautiful scene of nature. The most important benefit of Rui- katsu is to relieve stress.
