South Korea also can have no bathtubs, have decorations, and those rice cookers. I wonder how many of these are in Japan?

Japan does have bathtubs, but hardly we have decorations, and Rice Cookers are obviously common in Japan. Kitchens in Japan are small and just like China, only cooking is done. And, Japan has a system of passing the land after, maybe, 30 or 40 years.

We have a rice cooker too, and it's one of the best devices in our kitchen..
I honestly don't even know how to cook a rice without a rice cooker

Yes! I have better luck using our rice maker. We need to buy healthier rice for it though but my husband buys the biiig bags of rice so I feel weird buying another kind when that bag is so full haha.

Except for the 70-year property ownership expiry and one room for one person, all other aspects presented in this article apply to Indian homes / people too.

Lmao this article makes Chinese apartments look like some exotic thing. Most apartments and bathrooms in east Asia are like that. The bathtub, shower and toilets aren’t in the same rooms as the sinks. It’s more sanitary that way

I don't think the whole world is the other way around.These things changes as per the normal climate of a place, and culture, which affects the lifestyle, and inturn the food habits of people.
For eg: people living in areas which are mostly humid or warm is fine with the tile floor in bedroom(bathroom and bedroom tiles are different though), and humidity and moisture may easily ruin a wooden floor. When weather is mostly warm no centralized heating is needed.So in case you need an occassional bath in warm water you need a heater. There are dining rooms where people in close knit joined familes would like to have their dinner together. Whereas in atomic working families eating on a small table in kitchen doesn't look bad.When people mostly don't want to spend much time in bathroom, and just wants to have a quick shower 1 or 2 times daily won't normally need bathtub. Rice is the staple of many asian countries and since rice cooker increases the fuel efficiency in cooking rice and reduces the actual effort,it is being used and since it is not available in non rice eating parts of the world, this device needs to be carried along.Even non electric varieties are available.

Maybe you should take some time to do some proper research before writing tone deaf articles. There are also cross cultural sensitivity classes available. Or maybe even write from your own experiences instead of just speaking to "someone to moved to China".
