This way you'll know what to say and do during your visit.

What to know about where you go: Japan

 

If you are going on a business trip to Japan you may already know a few things about how the Japenese work and greet eachother in the business enviorment, but their are still a few things you should probably learn about the way business work in Japan.

 

2. Don't say sayonara unless you mean it!

To us sayonara is just another cool way to say good bye in a different lauguage but to the Japanese it is far more serious then just goodbye. Sayonara actualy means farewell as well as goodbye, and while that may not seem like a big deal but trust me it is. Sayonara means somthing more along the lines of "it is unlilkly I'll see,or talk to, you again soon" which can be very bad for business if used incorrectly.
