    Be Polite...learn some Japanese

    by Havespoonwilltravel Updated May 29, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is to your advantage to learn some Japanese words or phrases before you come here as not a lot of English is spoken.
    Berlitz has new phrase books that cover a multitude of topics...I highly recommend them.
    When ever you enter a shop, always bow when you greet someone, you will be considered very polite by doing this. Never place your chopsticks verticaly in a bowl of rice, that is considered a funeral rite!

    If you always remember that you are a guest in any country and act accordingly, you'll be quite surprised how open the people will be.

    Custom used to be tea, but now its coffee!

    From Seattle’s Best to Starbuck, to the local coffee houses. Coffee is taking Japan by storm. Just as in many cities across the USA, Japan has wrapped up the newer generation with coffee houses and folk music.
