The SAKURA is beginning to end the season,
And the new season is starting to come up in Tokyo.
All the trees will turn green from the white/pink SAKURA- which is also beautiful view.
Have to get ready for the picnic!
April is the beginning of the new period in Japan.
So many new comers start to join the company- like your school or your job.
What we do first to welcome them,
Is the welcome party— which means to go drink with your coworkers.
It is said that there are some ‘rules’ or ‘manners’ for the drinking scene in Japan.
-When you take your seat, you have to sit closer to the entrance (of the room) than your boss.
-When you make a toast and hit the glass to your boss, you cannot make your glass higher than your boss.
These may be quite OLD-STEREO typed rules,
And it is NOT that every single person in Japan follow these rules and you have to do it too,
But it is true that many of us follow / be aware of these.
It may help your NOMIKAI- if you knew these Japanese rules?
Hope you’ll have a great one :)
