The video above is a crash course on Japan’s etiquette of bowing and exchanging business cards.
Bowing to almost all social interaction is probably one of the best Japanese etiquette that us foreigners should adopt.
Bowing (お辞儀 o-jigi), is probably the feature of Japanese etiquette that is best known outside Japan (the o お is honorific but cannot be omitted for this word). Bowing is considered extremely important in Japan, so much so that, although children normally begin learning how to bow from a very young age, companies commonly provide training to their employees in how to execute bows correctly.
