are Japanese good tippers?

50 year old exec from Japan want to come and stay with my cousin (Im invited too) for 5 days and be shown Chicago.


Part of me says to opt out.

She has a 1 bedroom apartment. What could go right?

They like formalities. If you really want to impress the guy, have a business card made up with your info on the front in English and Japanese on the reverse (if you want to be really slick). When you meet him, bow and hand him your card holding it out with both hands such that he can read it. Take his card with both hands in the same manner and admire both sides of it. Hold onto his card or keep it out until you can put it away without him seeing you do so. If you do it he will be impressed.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etique...Business_cards


And Elvis. Japanese love Elvis.

He had sent me some mocha coffee. I graciously accepted it. I lied and said I loved it. I dont really want any more tho. Their coffee is hard on the stomach.

I am going to let my female cousin handle most of the plans. But I will need to be A1- she routinely ends up in the hospital for a few days. I told him that- she lives with in walking distance of coffee, donuts, burgers, tacos- and so on.

My cousin- LOVES to spend money. This is the one that treated me to $100 hair cut/dye. I had mine cut today for $5 and $1 tip.

I know she wants me to dress a little nicer - I am on that too. I have to mail back some old navy stuff- I have to get a bigger size.

My cousin is single- well divorced- age 46. The japanese guy is married- so I sort of have to be at least in and out.


One complaint and my cousin is well aware of this- is I do not like air fresheners at all. She plugs them in everywhere.

We have until early Summer to figure it all out.

I told our friend in Japan if he flied to Williamsport I can host him.

The cheaper fares are Harrisburg- but I always get lost down there. My cousin said he new boyfreind and her brother wont allow it. Oh well.
