Tipping in Japan: An Insider's Tip


TIPPING?

So, you go to a really nice restaurant and are greeted by a friendly staff, waited on hand and foot. The steak is mouthwatering, you have your choice of rice or bread, plenty of iced tea, and the waitress checks with you every five minutes to see if there's anything else you'd like.

 What percentage of the tab is a reasonable tip to leave?

NOTHING !

 In some places it's even considered rude to leave a tip.

 In Japan, you don't tip; excellent food and service is a way of life!
