Fragment of a book
Foreigners in Japan have always been amazed that the vast majority of its citizens know how to behave in society and in everyday life, as worthy to respond to any life situation. Japanese etiquette rules, collected in the book, answer the question why Japanese people do not care how others perceive them, why, finally, for the Japanese there is nothing more vexing than to "lose face." In the book there are gathered and structured experience of the Japanese society to use etiquette in everyday life that allowed the nation for centuries, on the one hand, to keep in their behavior deep traditions, and on the other, to develop dynamically and conquering new frontiers and to progress. The book tells about why the Japanese feel the need to voluntarily preserve and increase from generation to generation the traditions of national etiquette.
The book is the first in a series of publications on the broad topic of Japanese etiquette. It is designed for the widest possible readership, and perhaps especially for our young people, who often suffers from a lack of practical knowledge, how to behave among others.
