  1. Many Japanese receive a gift in a Japanese approrite way.
    First, receiver don't open the gift that giver gave while giver staying with them.
    THey open the gift and think what is enough for receive is only after giver back there home.
    It's because not to recard them as a greed person.
    Second, when receiver return the gift, they usually say "It's not enough for your gift".
    It isn't mean the meaning of the wards, but it means "Your gift was very great, so I couldn't found the gift that enough for it, so I sent you the best thing I can gift."
    It's because they want to regard them as a modesty person.
    As you can know in this writeing, Japanese often hide many thing, but it isn't mean they are not satisfied for your gift.

  2. In my culture ,Greeting someone has a manner .
    First,you must greet faster than older people with bowing when you met for the first time in a day.

    If you don't do it,they feel uncomfatable and think you are not friendly person.
