Japanese Customs

Japan has a number of customs that, while natural for a native Japanese person, might not come across as readily obvious to an outside observer. Nevertheless, customs such as bowing when you meet someone or taking your shoes off before entering someone’s home are very important to people in Japan. While one certainly won’t be punished for making a mistake, it’s best to check ahead of time so as to avoid any unnecessary social faux pas.
