Although the visitor to Japan may encounter many outward appearances of Westernization, even in the 1990's traditional etiquette continues to be extremely important. An understanding of the traditions of Japanese society is vital for all visitors: for tourists to enhance their enjoyment, and for business people to ensure the success of their visit. In addition to the existing chapters on wining and dining; visiting a Japanese home; making conversation and comunicating; gift-giving; travelling around; business matters and useful phrases and vocabulary, this fully revised edition includes sections on the Japanese attitude to foreigners, understanding space, understanding silence, and a new look at Japanese taboos. Also new is a section entitled "Facts about Japan" that offers key traveller information from climate to currency, transport to telephones, together with a complete index to ensure easy accessibility to all sections of the book.

Lucked onto this little book which is exactly what it purports to be and is a guide through daily business and pesonal conduct in the Japanese society to include details regarding toilet use and preparations that only your Mother would tell you !! It is well prepared and forthright, as if a professional guide were in your pocket, which it is.
Acquired other travel books that turned out to be sight seeing guides with little useful information about day to day conduct, etc.
Heartily trust and recommend this author and series which came at a remarkably low cost.
