Giving Gifts in Japan

Saturday, May 23, 2009 / Posted by Zackary /

In Japan people give money as a gift more often than we do in America. The proper way to give cash is in a nice card or envelope you can find at even most convenient stores. This tradition is most prevalent at weddings where few people give presents.

People don't always give cash for things such as birthdays and other special occasions. Many areas in Japan are famous for particular types of sweets and it is customary to bring some back when you are traveling. In case you forget that in most decent sized train stations you can buy such sweets all day every day.
