I don't understand why people use north, south, east and west when giving directions. I'm not a compass...

When I was in Japan in particular, I encountered that a lot too ><

I want to hug you for this.

The street sings in this city will say NAN OR BEI on the corner indicating which direction is which (Nan is south, Bei is north) bbut I have no idea what the words for east and west are and this only works if you are at an intersection. However, the last Chinese city I lived in, I do not reacall there being directions on the street signs.

I got lost all the time in Tokyo to the point where I just got off at random train stations and started walking till I found something that interested me. Shinjuku station are what nightmares are made of.

Because I'm not alone in not knowing the cardinal directions offhand.
