Japanese Business Etiquette
"You know you are in Japan when your toilet has 16 buttons and your bathroom talks to you!" These are common phrases you hear from people traveling to Japan for the first time. Phrases like these also describe Japan's uniqueness and modernity. But this country has a very rich culture filled with traditions and etiquette that you, as a visitor, should be aware of.
Do you know how to bow properly? Do you know how to exchange business cards without offending someone? Or are you aware of the protocol that needs to be followed in a business meeting or when dining out?
Questions like these and others will be looked at and discussed in this cross-cultural and Business English training lesson for ESL/EFL on Japanese Business Etiquette. A lesson to help you prepare for your travels to Japan or for meeting Japanese clients in your country.
