God I love going to Japan. I'm not up to speed on many nuances of local etiquette. I think the basic guiding rule should be that you are on you are on your absolute, most polite, respectful behavior at all times. And that's incredibly easy because you just will not believe how nice people there are

Some of these rules are in Romania as well. When you visit someone at home, you suppose to take your street shoes off, unless the host insists you can keep them on, most romanians keep extra pairs of flippers and house shoes. Is a sign of respect and a courteous person, sadly the youngsters nowadays seem to have lacked that. About garbage bins, it has been noted that the more garbage bins you have, the dirtier the streets, because wind usually turns them out. Less garbage bins leads to cleaner streets, as most people will stuff the garbage in their pockets until they have a chance to throw it.

"I've wandered through Tokyo for up to 20 minutes, sometimes, just in search of a bin and can't find one." meanwhile in Copenhagen, where I'm from, you spot one every 20 seconds. There are bins just about everywhere, from parks to train stations, you have to be an ass to not put your trash in a bin.

Alright, I will be the first one to admit it: I'm a weeb xD While I think Japan is superior to the rest of the world when it comes to entertainment (anime and manga stuff aside, there are also hilarious game shows), I don't want to live there due to strict rules and how powerful conservatism can be in that country. If I were being forced to live there, I would probably annoy a great many people as I don't care what other people think when I e.g. cross the road when no cars are nearby or stuff a business card in my pocket lol. That being said, I would say I'm generally a polite person and wouldn't disrespect a person I'm visiting, I just don't follow ridiculous rules.

Konnichiwa! I would say it's ok to blow your nose in the public as long as you do it quietly. The basic rule is that you avoid making excess noise that catches attention. I want to add one more "don't": Don't go "huh?" when you can't catch what people say. In Japan, we say "huh?" only when we are annoyed or mad, so it sounds quite intimidating. Try "eh?" instead.

At which angle shall you bow, to who, is there a respect degree or something ? Public bath or onsen, is there special rules to respect so jp people can accept you there?Like a special undressing / dressing way...or things to be done in a proper order?

Pred 9 dňami

Yes there are specific bowing rules. If you're a foreigner, especially not on business, then you probably don't need to know anything. Outside of business, you'll probably be bowed to with no expectation of bowing back +95% of the time- and outside of fairly formal places you probably won't actually be bowed to very much to begin with. What is common, are little bows when meeting say a friend's friend, and little nods in day to day use. These do, or almost, fall under normal nodding and "tipping of the (usually imaginary these days) hat" so to say in Western countries, so it's probably not even far from your normal practices. In short... tourists and such probably don't have to know anything- could very well not be expected to bow even once. If you're there on some sort of business (IMHO, especially if you look Asian), then you should probably carefully practice from a study guide if you think it's worth your trouble.
