    When preparing for a journey to Japan, Europeans often end up worrying about finding themselves in a foreign civilization where the inhabitants’ social codes are very different to those of many other nations. It’s hard to deny this. As an island state, Japan developed for centuries according to its own particular laws and standards of conduct. Despite partially adopting some cultural elements from China, Japan has always maintained its unique identity, which makes it stand out from other nations and makes its etiquette one of a kind.
    The authors of this monograph have tried as much as possible to make the whole process easier for foreigners preparing to go to Japan. The book outlines the main points of Japanese etiquette in a variety of life situations, which will help Europeans not to feel like outcasts in Japanese society, make their stay in Japan more pleasant and give them more confidence when interacting with the Japanese. The authors hope that the guide to Japanese etiquette will help Russian readers to find answers to many questions, which will undoubtedly arise during a foreigner’s stay in Japan and in communicating with Japanese people.
    The book is aimed at a wide circle of readers.
