When you sneeze in Japan, they don't say anything. There is no term like gesundheit or bless you in Japanese. I, like many Americans have the Pavlovian need to hear my sneeze acknowledged. Every time I sneeze it suddenly feels 10 times quieter due to the lack of response. Sneezing is a ritualized affair in America, which seems really strange when you think about it.
