Did you know that there is no Japanese hospital floor 4 or 9 ?
For reasons of pronunciation in some hospitals there is no room number
42 ( shi -ni) as it is ominous and may be the expression meaning " prepare to die " .
And not even pronounce maternity 43 ( shi- zan ) because it sounds like " stillbirth " . This is curious considering that the Japanese claim not live in fear of superstitions .
And according to recent studies of resale flats located on floors 4 and 9 that were put on sale took longer to sell and had a lower price .
Another curious fact is that many Japanese families named their children through números.Los Ichirō most common male names , Jirō , Saburō , Shirō and Gorō for the first child , the second, third, fourth and fifth , respectively.
