you' re intimidated by the many strict and
Formal ways the Japanese. Worry not
because I' m here to teach you the top 10
must know etiquetas to make your time in
Japan a pleasant one. on let' s begin!
1. Keep it modest and neutral.
Make sure you don' t express anger or
aggression. These traits are equated
with losing Face m Japan, something
you do not want to happen. Also
stick to neutral subjects m
conversations; private lives are kept
private.
IF you are close to the person then
it' s but even then you should try
to keep it out public eye.
2. Visiting a Japanese Temple
There' s no strict dress code
For visiting temples and
shrines, but you will Feel out
place m shorts or outfits with
modest skin coverage. Casual
clothes, including jeans, are
Fine For sightseeing. Remember
to remove your shoes when
entering temples. There are
usually slippers by the entrance
For you to change into.
when eating, it' s okay to ask For
a Fork you' re not comfortable
with chopsticks. IF you do use
chopsticks, do not use the end
the chopstick that has been in
your mouth to pick up Food From
communal dishes. And never beav
your chopsticks sticking straight
hopin Rest them Oh the edge OF gives them the resemblance

It Drinking *alcohol and regular
Drinking is something it national pastime in ' .
Japan. IF you' re not up to the task, never
refuse it drink ties considered very rude).
Instead, sip away. making sure your glass is
half Full.
Whatever you do, do not pour your own
glass. Companions traditionally pour drinks
For each other and pouring your own is
pointing out that your companions are not
attentive. In the same vein, you see an
empty glass, Fill it. IF someone offers you a
drink, it is polite to decline at First and
asked again you may accept and say yes.
5. Let' s talk about bowing
Japanese or all ages and
backgrounds bow in greeting
each other (even on the
telephone), and Foreign visitors
who at least bob the head will
get a smite " recognition.
However. Japanese know all "Pte even been
about handshake rig as well. and greeted with it Very
the visitor' s head may crash suprising embrace in
with an outstretched hand. the past when First
meeting people."
6. Slippers and shoes
when entering it Japanese house or
it ryokan, outdoor shoes are always
replaced by slippers at the doorway 3

the host. when entering it room i ‘
with tatami Floor, slippers are
removed " well. Tammi should only
be stepped on with socks or in bare -

slippers For exclusive usage inside
the washroom. The usual house "I MOU' this seems
slippers are left outside the door obvious but it' s very
while using the washroom. Important."
7. Deathly Numbers
As in many other cultures, there are Lagt
quite it Few social indiscretions I
connected with death. In the
Japanese language, the sound ofthe
word For "Four" is the same " the
word For "death," therefore, it comes
little surprise that Four is regarded
an unlucky number. As it result,
you' been invited to someones
home, giving Four " something " a
gift will likely make the recipient Feel it
little awkward; so, you' re best to stick ‘Five is it nice safe
with a safer number. number!

Public baths are a great place to scrub up '
before taking a long» relaxing soak. Just F',
make sure you do it in that order. Entering
the bathing area and making a beeline for Ir"

not going to put you in the best light. As

where you can sit on a little stool and scrub
up. with all the necessary accoutrements at
your fingertips. Don' t Forget that the bath

handkerchief is a big new m Japan.
You‘ re better OFF doing what many
others do, sniffing a lot.
Every train car has its sniffers and,
occasionally, some shorter: too. IF you
must honk into your name. Just do it as
discreetly as you possibly can and try
not to spend too much time gaining at
the Fruits your labor once thebub is
done.
10. ‘Revisiting chopsticks one more time
The only acceptable time to
pass something between two
people using Chopsticks is at
a Funeral: Following the
cremation, the remaining
bones the deceased are . l
picked up by a relative using so keep that in mind when you' re
passed the chopsticks leftovers to a mend. Better to
held by another relative who place it directly onto their plate
then places the bones into faetter Moarr Somemore i"
your dining party of the passing
the urn. of a loved one.
Alright guys I may have a
longer hiatus on my next
Japan mythheart comp [

a true False one on my
home country (It
will be two parts). I' ll have

This weeaboo I used to share a student house with is off to Japan in a month. She likes to think she knows about Japan and enjoys telling Japanese people about their own culture. I'm not going to pretend that I know a lot about it, but I now know that she is going to embarrass herself royally, and insult an awful lot of people.

Nice comp, as always.   
   
Can't wait to see the one on Russia, which I think is funny, because Russia seems to be a completely opposite country when compared culturally to Japan. But then again, I've never researched Russia culture, so for all I know, they can be exactly the same as the Japanese.   
   
By the way, exactly how many countries have you traveled to and lived in? Is it just Japan and Russia?

Funny enough Japanese culture has a lot in common with Russian culture. Both are very modest in public to the point of seeming cold but a ton of fun when out of public eye. Their both proper when it comes to dating someone. I could make a list of them. When I came to the states I felt a slight tension in being in a place so different from what I used to but when I came to Japan I felt a sense of....familiarity so to speak with how people behaved.  sadly we russians don't have a good rep in Japan. They think us very rude and loud.  also thank you for the praise on the comps.

It's cool. When I came here I actually wasn't a big fan of anime and I've only watched a few because my students talk about them or try to recommend me ones.
