    ^_^ i don't think it'd be bad manners, just very "western" in their opinion...

    i know the first time i hugged my Japanese teacher, she was a little caught off guard since they're more reserved... but after a while, she became used to it and even offered to hug me! Kissing, i'm sure, is similar but that may be a little too close for comfort for some Japanese people...

    I do believe that is the right way of wearing it. They dress corpses right on left.
    Dreams of snow falling softly in the dark-filled night,
    Dreams of wings and stars and endless light.
    I'd live a thousand years and wait a thousand more for you,
    I'd dream a thousand dreams and hope that dreams come true.

    That is actually also a Western custom.

    That depends on the area you are. Local specialties are what you need to check out.

    I think the japanese eat chicken, pork, beef, etc. I don't think there is anything that they eat that we don't eat, besides sushi and sashimi.
    If your happy and you know it make a kitty!!! =^_^= <Meow!

    I am not sure, but aren't there Japanese delecacies involve some meats or animals that are considered taboo in the Western countries?

    I don't know if it is like Korea and Gaegogi(Dog meat), but since history has shown us that Japan has been a major influence on Korean culture, couldn't that be vice versa as well?

    Puffer fish..is that one? I have seen it served in Japanese restraunts but I don't know if they do the same in America.

    By the way, sushi and sashimi are very big in America. You can find a sushi bar almost anywhere nowadays.
