Congratulations to Amy Chavez and illustrator, Jun Hazuki for taking the Silver in the Travel category at this year's IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards which was held at the IBPA Publishing University this year in Chicago, Illinois.
This illustrated guide to common courtesy, acceptable behavior, and manners is essential for any visitor to Japan. By knowing how to act in every situation you'll gain the respect of your hosts and in the end get even better service and enjoyment during your travels.
Covered here are all the essentials—like travel, greetings, dining—plus subtle niceties like tone of voice, body language, cell phone usage, city vs. country styles, and attire (and what to do about your tattoos!).
