TEN INTERESTING INSIGHTS

JAPANESE CULTURE

   

Visiting Japan? Here are some interesting insights and helpful tips to enhance your visit.
   
1. "Omotenashi" - llegendary customer service and hospitality.
   
2. Learn some Japanese words and expressions. You will make a good impression.
   
3. Buy a data-heavy SIM card at the airport; carry cash; don't tip (it is included). Most transit accepts Suica or Pasmo cards.
   
4. Depachika - Visit the food court in basement of department stores - enjoy a vast array of gourmet foods. Also if you are looking for a tasty and inexpensive meal, check out the upper floor of department stores.
   
5. Don't speak loudly on trains and talk on cell phones. Practice "omotenashi" (being courteous and hositable) and "omoiyari" (being sensitive to the needs of those around you and showing empathy).
   
6. Escalator etiquette - Kanto (Tokyo) and eastwards, it's to the left; in Kansai (Osaka) and westwards, it's to the right.
   
7. Don't close the taxi door - they are controlled by the driver.
   
8. Eating and drinking while walking on the street is frowned upon.
   
9. Learn some rules and etiquette for using chopsticks.
   
10. Don't Take Pictures of Geisha or Maiko Without Permission.
