A complete illustrated guide with everything you need to know about the rules of behavior and education of the country of the rising sun.
This illustrated guide on standards of behavior and courtesy is basic for anyone going to Japan. Knowing how to be on each occasion will allow you to earn the respect of your hosts, get better attention and enjoy more of the Japanese country, its people and its customs.
