Japanese greetings



At this time it is relevant to reflect on the merits of japanese-style greetings. Respect can be shown to others while avoiding the traditional western handshake. 


Bowing can start when you first see the person at a distance, and continue as you approach them, but has to stop at a one meter distance !


Avoid the mistakes of Trump and Obama.

Nope. But I love Japan! I spend many summers there and lived in Kyoto for a year. It does not make me an expert on Japanese culture, abd I don't claim to be one!
