  • The Yen is strong when compared to other currencies including the US dollar. Japanese travelers would find shopping in USA cheaper than many other international visitors.
  • Most Americans are polite and learning a few English sentences to express your gratitude or to communicate with Americans will help.
  • When you are shopping at an American department store you might be asked if you want to open a credit card account. It is common in US stores to offer customers a new credit card. You can politely decline this offer should you not want it.
  • Many Americans think all Asians look alike and that Japanese look like Chinese or Koreans. Do not get offended by this.
  • In America it is expected to pay a 'tip' or "gratuity". In the food menu the price displayed may not be the real price. The real price could be 20% higher and it also applies for Taxi cabs. It is considered rude not to pay this "gratuity".
  • Most cities in the USA have Japanese food available and you have to simply search for the right restaurant. Double check the names used in the menu (English names used for Japanese cuisines can vary) before you order.
  • It is considered polite to open a door for a lady or wait for a lady at a passageway. It could be construed as being rude to not do so.
