Does anyone have some tips for The Savvy Old Lady regarding customs and culture in Japan?

Jump to last reply

In a few weeks The Crabby Old Guy and I will be flying to Okinawa to attend our son, the Marine’s wedding. I thought perhaps some of you seasoned travelers might have some tips for us so that we don’t embarrass ourselves or offend our Japanese daughter-in-law or her family. The best we can get from our dear “Sergeant” is not to stab our food with our chop sticks and to never point our chop sticks at anyone when speaking. The last thing we want or need is to appear as “The Ugly Americans” LOL. Since we have just made a major move to Nashville, Tenn. we have not had the time to do any research. The wedding date was surprisingly moved up due to the military bureaucracy and the fact that our son is being reassigned to a different base. Believe me all advice will be gratefully appreciated.

Stay Savvy!
Hugs,
