Ok, I can't speak Japanese >< so I'll use English. Is it true, that you have difficulties in relationship? I mean you often misunderstand each other because you almost never tell about your feelings. Am I right?
Japan is basically a mono-cultural and extremely high context society. People share the same/similar culture, education, value and so on. If you get to intermediate level in Japanese language you will be aware that Japanese is built under a precondition that all the speakers are capable of guessing and filling in blanks in sentences. Such a difficulty appears in relationships with a person from other cultures, like foreigners. But within Japanese they don't have it, I believe.
Each society is different and have social problems when you analyse it deeply. I am not Japanese but I have studied Japanese behaviour on my University so I noticed that Japanese people are more reserved and indeed have difficulties with relationships, even with their own families, more than in another societies. For example, many families don't know how to deal with sons and daughters that are hikikomori (ひきこもり, person who doesn't go out from home and stay all day long in it, usually in the bedroom, isolated from the society - this person may have some disturbs like anxiety, sociophobia and other mental issues). Many of this parents want desperately help their kids but can't do it because they feel too much shame of the situation they are in; Japan is a "shame culture" (according Ruth Benedict) then it's hard for Japanese people leave this feeling and become more natural because all the construction of the individual is done using the shame as a tool. If you want to know more about social studies I recommend you the book of Ruth Benedict, "The Chrysanthemum and The Sword" (1946) but it should be read carefully; Benedict sometimes is very Orientalist and treat Japanese society as an Alien society.
