“Must-not-dos” in a Japanese room
Even a small action that you do unintentionally could be perceived as impolite in a different culture. Here are some tips you should remember about staying in a traditional Japanese room.
When you stay in a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn), a staff member usually shows you to your room. If you are sharing it with someone, the staff observes carefully who sits where. This is because traditionally, there is priority in seating in a Japanese room so that the staff can recognize the power balance among the people from their seating positions.
