Bud Luck Number 4&9

Some countries say that the number 13 symbolizes bad luck, however, for Japan, the number is 4. The reason why Japanese people dislike the number 4 is because “Death” in Japanese is pronounced “Shi” and is the same pronunciation for the number 4. The number 49 says that you will be in pain and miserable until you die. Hospitals or hotels avoid having rooms with the number 4 or 9 with them. It is also good to avoid giving 4 presents. When people give money for a celebration, they avoid giving “4,000 Yen” or “40,000 Yen”
