Japanese are often said to be difficult to do business. The reason is that they do not tell what they are thinking. So, they tell people the thing that is different from what they have in mind. What they are trying to do here is to make their remarks as vague as possible so that the person they are talking to won't get hurt. For example, when a friend shows up in strange hairstyle, Japanese do not say directly that his or her hairstyle looks awful, but say something like "It is looks unique" or "It is like you"
