-Business Manner in Japan②-  Business cards in Japan

In Japan, exchanging business cards is incredibly important.

You necessarily have to exchange business cards before starting a business meeting.

We have some rules about handling business cards.

First of all, you should exchange the cards with both your hands, not only one hand.

secondly, you have to give the card to the person in the highest positions first.

If you don’t know that, it is acceptable to give the cards to older person first.

After exchanging cards, please do not put them in your card case.

You should put them on the table until the end of your meeting.

Business card is an essential item for Japanese businessman.

If you attend the meeting in Japan, I recommend you bring your business cards a lot.
