The first one is “Addressing Someone, Respect”.The meaning of this is that Bowing is very respectful here.For tourists, a simple inclination of the head or an attempt at a bow at the waist will usually be fine. The second would be “ Table Manners”.Being respectful at the table is very important to them and Rules aren’t as simple as they are here.1.You will receive a small wet cloth at most Japanese restaurants. Use this to wash your hands before eating, then carefully fold it and set it aside on the table. Do not use it as a napkin, or to touch any part of your face.2.Slurping noodles or making loud noises while eating is ok. In fact, slurping hot food like ramen is polite, to show you are enjoying it.

If i could only pick two they would be Tokyo, and Kanazawa. Tokyo is the capitol of japan and it is a very unique place they anyone would be lucky to visit if they had the chance to go to japan. Kanazawa is a city in japan. It has art museums and handicrafts. I would visit here beacause not many people pay much attention to this city and i think it would be a cool place to go and learn about. Japan has many nice hotles but the ones i would choose to stay in are “Osaka Marriott Miyako Hotel” and “Conrad Tokyo”. Conrad tokyo is located at 1 Chome-9-1 Higashishinbashi, Minato, Tokyo 105-7337, Japan. The number to reach this hotel is +81 3-6388-8000. It is a very nice place to stay while you are visiting and has a very nice view. Japan is a really cool place and some of its characteristics are interesting to learn. Someday we would even like to visit japan because it seems very cool and we could learn so much more about them and how they live. If you had the chance you should visit there too because i think you would be pretty surprised at how different and unique it is compared to here.
