While You’re Out – Tips & Tricks

While You’re Out – Tips & Tricks

  • There is no tipping when eating out in Japan.
  • If you enjoyed your dining experience and want to express your gratitude or compliment the chef/service staff, a friendly “Gochiso-sama-deshita” will do.
  • When dining out with a large group, it’s common for everyone, regardless of what/how much they ate or drank, to pay the same price as calculated by whoever organized the gathering.
  • If you need help with directions, you can probably find someone to assist you (in English) at a kōban police box, which you’ll find close to most train stations.
  • Getting around without speaking Japanese is not as scary as you may think. Most people are helpful, and little phrases like “sumimasen” (excuse me) and “arigato” (thank you) go a long way.
