SHort book that is perfect for those wanting a very basic set of rules so you do not come across as a rhino in a china-shop when visiting Japan. THis is not a very DEEP book, but a good starting point for more detialed research at a later date. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804834172, Paperback)

Etiquette Guide to Japan offers an inside look at the social norms of the Japanese-when to bow, how to propose a toast, when to pay the bill, the careful art of gift-giving, how to deal with public transportation, dating, weddings, funerals, and last, but not least, how to say good-bye at the end of your stay. If you want to save yourself from possible embarrassment during your stay in Japan, you will find the Etiquette Guide to Japan to be a much-needed companion.
