It had become to mean being modern to behave like the white people do: to sit on a chair instead of a mat, to eat with a silver dinner set instead of wooden chop sticks, to wear blouses and skirts instead of a kimono, to eat meat and bread instead of rice and fish, not to get exposed to the sun for a long time in order to not let the skin grow dark from tanning. E. g., eating beef had also been officially confirmed.
