Next year I hope to be able to travel around Japan!!
For our Japanese posters or those who know a lot about Japan:
What are your tips?
What are the must sees?
Any tips on how to make the journey cheaper- Japan seems to be quite expensive...
And I also have tons of stupid questions, never having encountered the Japanese way of living.
- So, my Japanese teacher told us that touching is not done in Japan so you don't shake hands or hug but bow. Does that also include close friends?
And what is customary if I go for example to a hotel and present myself at the reception? Do I bow there as well?
I mean, I don't shake hands with the receptionist so I have no idea what the "code" is.
- I also learned that you don't use your tissue but rather snuffle and that you never give four of anything as four is the same word as death - what other "rules" do you know that might be unfamiliar to me?
- I had a lot more questions but I forgot them right now - will add them later
