Behaving in Japan – A Primer on Japanese Customs and Etiquette


Life in Japan

In light of a recent controversy involving  internet celebrities and their ill-mannered behavior in Japan, I’ve decided to write this guide on manners and how to conduct oneself in Japan. The reason behind this guide is simple: as a content creator, I write lots of travel pieces introducing Japan in hopes that others will come see this amazing country. To put it more bluntly, I earn income introducing people to Japan. The very least I can do is make sure that travelers, a record-breaking 27 million foreign visitors in 2017, make the most of their visit while respecting the customs and people of Japan.
