Japan: Greet with a bow
Japanese of all ages and backgrounds bow in greeting each other (even on the telephone!), and foreign visitors who at least bob the head will get a smile of recognition. However, Japanese know all about handshaking now, and the visitor’s head may crash with an out-stretched hand. In business, exchanging name cards is essential.
