Why are protocols such an important part of Japanese business culture?

Japanese etiquette & protocol is highly influenced by its long history which has cultivated a highly structured and hierarchical society. Tradition has been a key factor in forming the highly successful modern-day Japan.

These protocols govern all aspects of Japanese life and interpersonal relationships. Great importance is placed on harmony, politeness, loyalty, group consideration.

   

 
Working Effectively with Japanese workshops will include a section on etiquette and protocol. While the Japanese are very gracious and do not expect non-Japanese to understand the intracacies of Japanese custom and traditions, a solid understanding of proper behavior is essential. In Japan, the expression "you never get a second chance to make a good impression" takes on new meaning.
