I have always been told to put my shoes facing away from the room, towards the door. Not only does this mean all the shoes are uniform and look neater, they are easier to put on when you leave the house.

Are you doing business with the Japanese? Do you wonder how to approach them, what to do and what not to do? I am happy to provide some advice.


I have worked for a Japanese company for 6 years and taught myself how to work with the Japanese and also some of the Japanese language. Also, my wife is Japanese, which is why I have also learnt about Japanese in private life.

None. All based on experience.
