Japan Travel to Japan Manga

An entry yesterday and again today without being O_O bad XD
turns out that yesterday I took from the library a new guide on Japan and I decided to share with you the cultural highlights that I've been reading. Specifically, the guide is called Travel ... Japanese publisher and Languages \u200b\u200bPons. I've seen about 5 or 6 guides on Japan and I have it now, is one of my favorites. Will copy the highlighted as they appear and they will make new entries for a few days. I will therefore now ^ ^.


Treatment: formal treatment in Japan is in the use of the name, which is added after the ending-san. Japanese no difference between genders or sexes. For example, if your last name is Ortega, people will tell you Orutega-san (the r alone does not exist in Japanese) regardless of whether you are a man or a woman. However, treatment does not use-san with his own name or that of their relatives, since this treatment is used exclusively free to go to the party. We should also mention that the Japanese names, such as in cards, sorted unlike ours, that is, it is firstly the name and then name.

Greetings, Aisatsu: greets people in Japan made a bow. The higher this is, the more respect shown to the person in front. Shake hands with the western way is not frequent and hugging and kissing in public is considered completely out of place, since such gestures belong exclusively to the private sphere.
the morning until about 10 uses the greeting Ohayou gozaimasu; later, until about 17 hours is said Konnichi wa. From this time and until about 21 hours the greeting must be used is Kon ban wa . Oyasumi Nasai is said to wish good night when you go to sleep.

visiting program for families: offers the possibility of visiting a Japanese home and talk with family members for several hours. The Japanese like to make a minimum of contact with foreigners. In this way international relations can be maintained and you have the chance to swim for several hours in an authentic Japanese atmosphere. Both the mediators and the invitation is entirely voluntary. This program visits families organized in the following cities: Narita, Yokohama, Kyoto, Osaka, Otsu, Kobe, Kurashiki, Okayama, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Kumamoto and Miyazaki. The corresponding addresses can be obtained either at the Tourist Information Centre in Tokyo or information centers in different cities. In some of them the registration must be made directly in the office at least one day before the visit. More details on the conditions must be ordered in advance directly to the centers. Visit

home: Before entering a house, and in typical Japanese hotel, the ryokan should remove their shoes and wear shoes that are prepared at the entrance. With them you can move into the hallway, but rooms with tatami (Japanese mat woven of straw) is entered only with socks, leaving out even the shoes. The toilet is entered with different ones, which are used solely for that purpose. When you leave, do not forget to change by the aisle.

The Japanese bathroom: Both houses like those of the ryokan are equipped differently to Europeans. Consist of one bedroom with floor drain where there is also a hot tub , a sort of bathtub that is filled very hot water. However, the tourist should not confuse this room with a bathroom Europe and make the mistake of soaping and washing in hot tub : no shower in the room, he puts water in a bucket that will be there ready and washed one foot or in a seat that has been taken to the room. Then, to relax, you can get into hot water hot tub . Therefore, this is not a bathtub, but rather a type of pool, so that after use you should never remove the cap and empty of water, since it must be ready as is for the next person want to use it. For water maintain its temperature, hot tub is covered with an insulating cover. These same rules also apply to the use of onsen, the hot spring baths.

Farewell: In general, to use the word goodbye Sayoun and made a small bow. Among relatives said ITTE kimasu and receive a ITTE rasshai. If you return, you may greet with the turn Tadaima . Those who have stayed at home usually respond with okaeri Nasai.

In the restaurant: Eat and shopping are two of the favorite activities of the Japanese. That is why there are so many different types of restaurants. There are some who only serve Western food, and others that offer Japanese and Chinese food. In the windows of Japanese restaurants are wax replicas of dishes served, so you can simply point out what you want to eat. In addition, there are many restaurants that offer only one or two different dishes. Are typical, for example, sushi restaurants and numerous restaurants serving pasta as and soba ramen. To order is said or kore kudasai and then the plate number you want. With food received a palilllos, hashi, a warm towel to clean hands and a glass of cold water. Western cutlery are usually found only if the restaurant serves western food. In Japan it is said before eating itadakimasu , and after eating goshisou sama.

Business Travel: If you go to Japan on a business trip at the invitation of the Japanese themselves can be sure that the organization will be magnificent. If it comes to business, for the Europeans is very important to take a long time, while for the Japanese is essential to have a good environment for successful negotiations. We invite you to eat and may have the opportunity to invite. As the evening progresses normally begin to sing. Do not be shy and sing too. It would be unthinkable to go directly to the negotiations. When you start negotiating, it is important to take into account: the Japanese do not interrupt the speaker, because this is considered a rude gesture. The agreement or disagreement are not expressed either verbally or through gestures. Never directly hear a no, but you will notice a general refusal on the environment, expressed through buildings as it is difficult or not comes in handy. For a Japanese clearly say yes means gaining an absolute obligation that is essential to meet to avoid being wrong. Apart from a long time, you need a bilingual business card wherever they appear the name of your company, position and other important details. You should dress formally, so that, although temperatures are high is essential to wear a suit, light shirt and tie. Also bring leaflets and documents in Japanese or English.
