Shrine Etiquette
You pass through the tori gate
Take the ladle at the purification fountain and rinse your hands
Then transfer water into your own hand to rinse your mouth and spit the water beside the fountain
At the offering hall throw a coin into the offering box then: bow, clap your hands twice, bow deeply once more and pray for a few seconds
If there is a gong, ring it before praying.
Temple Etiquette
Behave calmly and respectfully.
The procedure isn't as strict as a shrine's.
One process is to throw a coin into the offering box and then make a short prayer in front of the sacred object.
At other temples:
Visitors need to burn incense and offer a prayer.
When you are done, extinguish the flame by waving your hand over it, fanning it towards you
Some temples may require that you take off your shoes. Do so, but be sure to wear nice socks. :)
Hard working, loyal
"Wa," or "Harmony"
Leadership: not the same
Cohesiveness encouraged inside and out
Sake!
Greetings should be returned in a lively manner
The person lower on the social ladder is expected to bow first
Use the person's last name and -san, but don't use the suffix to refer to yourself
Respect others' personal space: don't stare them in the eye excessively or touch them without permission
Greeting
Dining Etiquette
Do not rub your chopsticks together, use them to point or to transfer food directly from two sets of chopsticks.
Use the broad end of your chopsticks to pick up food from a shared plate.
It's polite to empty your dish completely, especially rice.
Nigiri and sushi rolls are actually considered finger food and can be eaten with your hands, preferably in one bite.
Only the fish part of the nigiri should touch the soy sauce when dipped. The rice tends to disintegrate, plus it's a source of pride for sushi rice to be perfectly seasoned.
Do not overuse soy sauce, as this can insult the chef by suggesting their preparation is not good enough.
When in a group, beer or sake should be poured for your companions and not for yourself.
The Japanese tend to be more forgiving
toward us gaijin making social blunders,
but it is appreciated and respectful to
familiarize oneself with Japanese customs!
General
It's impolite to talk on the phone while riding the subway
A kimono or yukata should be worn with the left side over the right
It's seen as rude to blow your nose in public; sniffling is preferred over using tissues or a handkerchief. Try to find a private place to do so.
Avoid giving gifts in groups of four or seven, as they contain the character for death, or 'shi'
