Japanese Etiquette

When visiting a foreign place, it's a good idea to be in tune with the do's and dont's in an effort to respect the country you are in and the people! Here are some etiquette tips for your next visit to Japan!

 

a • DON'T WALK AND EAT

Ok, this is generally frowned upon in most places around the world and one of these places is Japan. Find a nice restaurant or public seating area to enjoy your meal.

f • GIVE UP YOUR SEAT

This is just generally the right thing to do too! Do not use the reserved seats and always give up your seat to the elderly and disabled.

g • HAND OUT YOUR BUSINESS CARDS

It's adviced to present your business card or meishi to a new acquaintance at the beginning of a conversation or at meetings.

h • NO TIPS

Restaurants build in any additional fees into your bill so there is no need to leave a tip. This is also the case for other services and product purchases.
