Traveling in January

by traveler357

I am traveling in January and would like to know the local customs, do's and don't's. If anyone can help me I thank you in advance.

Hi! Welcome to Japan :-)

Here I write some customs...

If you are entering Japanese style house, you have to take off your shoes.
It is not rude to make noise during eating noodles.
(So, you will hear many people making noise when they eat Japanese noodle)

The word "Sumimasen" is very useful.
It means, "Excuse me", "I'm sorry", "Thank you", and "Hello" etc. according to the situation.
For example, if you step on somebady's foot, then you can say "Sumimasen".
Or, when you want to buy something and call the shop staff, then you can say "Sumimasen".

In Japan, usually people bow at meeting. (instead of shaking hands)

Hope this helps :-)

Hi again :-)

Another tip ...

Look right first when you cross a street.
In Japan, the traffic is opposite from the US.
Cars go in the left side.

I guess, you look left first when you cross a street in the US.
But here in Japan, we have to look right first, then left :-)

You have been a great source of information. I have been contemplating visiting a Japanese restuarant here in the states to make myself aware the customs and food. Is there any dishes or customs you can make aware of? Again Thank You in Advance.

Oh, good idea!
You can learn how to use chop sticks.
(But you don't have to worry even if you can't use chop sticks at first.
Usually, there are forks, nives and spoons in restaurants :-)

Have a good time!
