The phrase “the land of the rising sun” is explained by the real name of the country - Nihon. Translated from Japanese, it means the sun and the root, which can be interpreted as the sunrise. In addition, the inhabitants of Japan meet the dawn of the first. Japan is considered the most mysterious country in the world. Therefore, all traditions seem unusual to us. For example, instead of the usual handshake, the Japanese exchange bows. With that, you need to worship as many times as the interlocutor. A lot of traditions associated with eating. Before eating, you should wipe your face and hands with a wet, warm towel. Unlike Russia, where champing is considered bad form, in Japan it is customary to smack hot and tasty food.
