About Bowing In Japan
Here’s some great advice about bowing in Japan! Traditional, apology, greeting and so on. Take a look! It’s very important to know how to bow there. It’s considered polite and they will appreciate you more there if you know some local manners. Bowing is (in my opinion) one of the most important things you can possibly know when traveling in Japan.

I am not trying to be rude, but since...
