Japanese Etiquette

Good etiquette and following social norms is an integral part of Japanese society. Most Japanese etiquette is based on being considerate of others. As such, rude behavior is easily noticeable and strongly frowned upon. Many of these social rules carry over from Western standards, such as not invading someone’s personal space unnecessarily. Others are easily inferred, such as not being too loud or rambunctious on the trains. Yet some etiquette is not obvious, and must be learned by research and observation.
