Ensure the information you provide is in written format and presented scientifically. Once a decision has been reached minds are very rarely changed. Punctuality is a serious issue, being early or late shows disrespect for peoples' time Germans will be direct to the point of bluntness In Japan, a business meeting cannot start until business cards are exchanged. Very important to be punctual. Some Japanese close their eyes when they want to listen intently. Don’t see contracts as final agreements so they can be renegotiated. Japanese understand it is very difficult for foreigners to do business Appointments should be made several weeks in advance. If possible, wait to be introduced as it can be seen as impolite to introduce yourself, especially in a large gathering It may take several meetings for Japanese to become comfortable to conduct business with you. Cultural differences are really important when you want to make a business. That's why we think it's always good to be prepared and know some things about the culture with whom you're going to negotiate. This would keep you from having unwanted misunderstandings and have a succesfull meeting and relationship with the other part. Thank you for your attention!
