Lesson 4: Date and Time

Communication Tips


In the Japanese society, everything supposed to be on time. And people do care about it.

If you are asked to come at 2pm, it really means 2:00pm sharp - not later than that. In general, people show up 5-10 minutes before.

If you are late, better to apologize with no fake excuse which could make the situation worse.

If you are meeting with someone important to you, and if you want to give a good impression. Be on time. This is true especially in business.
